Electric and Plumbing Codes


Hi, we are in the process of looking for an electrician and a plumber to do some work in a basement that we're renovating. Our township follows standard UCC codes. I've had a bit of trouble/mixed messages from people I've talked to as far as what's permissable. Does the plumbing need to be done by a master plumber, or can it be done by someone else and then cleared by a master plumber? (And if it can be done by someone else, do they have to be licensed/insured?). Same question for the electric. (ie does it have to be done by a licesed professional, approved by one, or neither). Thanks for your help

Oh, and I should probably add- as far as plumbing, we're not doing any demo. Everything will run on upflush and gray water pumps.

Whether they're on the old uniform codes or the new international codes, this question can only be answered by the local jurisdiction. I can tell you with 100% certainty that this varies from city to city, even when they're under the same code. Call your local building department and ask them, just to be sure.

I would not hire anyone who was uninsured. You are opening yourself to way too much trouble/liability with that one.

Uhh, absolutely. Hiring an uninsured contractor is just asking for trouble.

Thanks. Never intended on hiring anyone for any of the jobs who wasn't licensed and insured, just trying to clear a few conflicting opinions on this end as far as what is required. I appreciate everyone's help. Just found out we aren't required to have a master per the township, so we're in the process of hiring insured professionals. Thanks again
