Do I need a permit to replace my water heater?

When installing a new water heater in Southern Arizona a building permit is required.

“A permit and inspections are required for most residential projects including porches, additions, and equipment such as air conditioners and water heaters. If new work is performed such as replacement of gas piping, a plan may be necessary to obtain the permit.

It is the homeowner/property owner’s responsibility to provide plans and obtain a permit”
