Before any plumbing work is started in a building, any additions or alterations are made to old work, a house sewer connection is made or new water distribution pipes are installed, an application on regular printed forms, properly filled out in ink and signed by a licensed master plumber, shall be filed in the office of the Village Administrator. Inspection fees as described herein, together with plans and a description in duplicate showing and describing the proposed work, shall accompany the application. Where only stoppages are removed or leaks repaired or where plumbing fixtures are replaced without altering or disturbing any drain, soil, waste or vent pipe, no application or permit will be required. New fixtures replacing old fixtures must be vented in accordance with this code, regardless of the venting of the existing fixtures.
