Building Codes, and Plumbing, Water Filtration, and Building Permits

Building Codes are co-created regulations by municipal officials and tradespeople to govern the design, construction, repair, or alteration of buildings, which include residential and commercial structures.

These codes apply to virtually every structure, including garages, houses, schools, churches, agricultural and commercial buildings. Building codes exist to protect the life, health, and safety of the individuals who will inhabit houses, buildings, and structures and protect the environment from potential hazards. The benefit is that building codes establish a building’s quality, safety, and energy performance for years to come.

Building Codes require all Consumers and Contractors to acquire Building Permits from the City, County, or State jurisdictional district they reside in for every Job, Project, Construction Alteration, Enhancement, or Erection they perform on their residential or commercial structure.

Everyone must comply with all Plumbing, Water Filtration, and Building codes to remain compliant and avoid fines and penalties. Ignorance of the Law is not an excuse to break the law. You must obtain building permits for any job or project required to have a permit, and the jurisdictional agency must inspect the job or project to validate the work performed was up to the code standards. This also applies to all Water Heater replacements or new installations.


Building permits are written authorizations issued by a city, county, or state jurisdiction to repair, alter, or construct a building or structure project. They are required for most construction or remodeling projects to ensure the worker’s safety and compliance with building, construction, and zoning codes. In addition to obtaining building permits, you may need to obtain a secondary permit, such as electrical, plumbing, or mechanical permits, depending on your project’s scope.

You must obtain a permit when installing a Water Heater, and you may need to obtain a plumbing permit if you plan to install an underground lawn sprinkler. Or, you may need a mechanical permit to install a central air conditioning unit. The only way to determine whether your project needs building permits is to consult your jurisdictional building and permit office.

Central Coast Cities, San Luis Obispo County, Santa Barbara County, and California State have legislation, rules, regulations, and specified building codes of compliance for all Plumbing, Water Filtration, and Building jobs or projects. This includes laws governing the requirement for installing Water Heaters, getting Building Permits for specific jobs and projects, and hiring Contractors.
