Water Heater Permit Requirements
You may require a permit to have your plumbing fixture or water heater installed. We can help with the permit application making it an easy step in the process.
All gas water heaters require a gas permit. This fee is determined by your local municipality and includes a paperwork processing fee. Some municipalities may also require earthquake straps to secure your tank in place and pass your municipal inspection. Please call for details.

Building Commercial Success

- Safety Devices
1. Flush your water heater every year (or more often). New installations can join our Flush Reminder Program. We will call you every year on the anniversary of your water heater install to remind you to have it flushed.
2. Check the pressure reducing valve every six months. This valve regulates the water entering your home from the municipality. Your home water pressure should be between 45 to 75 PSI. Pressure above 75 PSI can damage your home plumbing system and cause your water heater to leak prematurely. This will not be covered by the tank warranty.
3. Add safety upgrades. These include:
- Tank Pan
- Expansion Tank
- T&P Relief Valve
- Earthquake Straps
- Water Leak Detector
- Carbon Monoxide Detector
4. Check your plumbing for leaks and cracks. Add food colouring to your toilet tank to check for cracks in the porcelain. Inspect the drains under your sinks to check for any ageing or cracks on the plastic pipes. Test your fixture shutoffs by turning them counter-clockwise to ensure that they can properly control water flow to your fixtures. Read more tips on our blog.
