Plumbing system installation inspections are made when plumbing systems are installed in all new homes or businesses in Medina County, or when plumbing systems are altered in existing homes or businesses. A permit to do such plumbing work is required to be obtained from our department. A registered plumbing contractor will determine the number of fixtures needed and will obtain a permit based on this information. For installation work involving businesses, one set in PDF format of architectural drawings are required to be submitted along with a plan review fee and a plan review application. Although homeowners can obtain permits to do their own plumbing installations, it has been our experience that with all of the detailed code requirements, it is often best to hire an experienced plumber.
All medical gas installations intended for human consumption or use must be inspected for compliance to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 99C. This includes but is not limited to: hospitals, emergency rooms, dental offices and satellite surgery centers. Veterinarian offices do not apply.
All installers of medical gas must be American Society of Sanitary Engineers (ASSE) 6010 certified and have their certification card available for the inspector to view at the job site. Installer must be on site for inspection. When submitting a plumbing application for medical gas you must submit a copy of the certification card holder for the company.
