  • permit for catch basin rebuild

    So here's my dilemma. I looked at a job today in the Roseland Pullman area . historical part of chicago.customer has a catch basin that is falling apart.I was trying to explain to her a couple of different options..1 eliminate it redirect the lines and fill it in.2 remove it in its intirety and fit a two piece basin new cookie and new lid .But she is sold on just rebuilding the bricks from top to 2 ft down and parge the whole basin.i Tried To Explain To Her For Any Of Those Options A Permit Is needed.she Spent An Hour Trying To convince me To Rebuild It And Parge It .She Said We Wont Need A Permit then.i Told Her We Still Need one.i Never Had A Customer Try to talk me out of getting a permit.And I couldn't figure out why...Well now I know why.....I seen the inside of her house and she's the biggest hoarder I've ever seen...she's scared about the city.. so my question to u guys would be ...do I need a permit to repair the walls of the basin ? Not doing anything with the piping just the walls.just so I don't sound crazy when I tell her again..lol

    I'd talk to your local inspector or local Dept of Building and Safety. Our codes and requirements are vastly different across the nation.

    Also check out Source One. They have alot of products may work for your application.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      According to the Hammond, Ind. web site schedule of fees, you need a permit for interceptors, separators, and pits of any type:

      http://www.gohammond.com/web/downloa...171c3e599615c7

      It's just a question of how much they will charge.

      Also from their site:

      Plumbing Inspector

      The Plumbing Inspector performs inspections of new or remodeled water, drainage, waste, vent and sewage systems to ensure plans, materials and work quality meet plumbing code standards. They also advise contractors, plumbers and the general public on plumbing codes, installations and requirements to receive permits.

      

This line of work requires extensive knowledge of materials and practices used in making plumbing installations, a $5,000 license/permit bond, recorded by the Lake County Recorder, Certificate of insurance with Workers Compensation and $100 for processing fees. A State Plumbing license is required to perform any plumbing work in the City.



      Plumbing permit fees are determined by the number of fixtures, water service, sewer tap and public right of way openings. The minimum permit fee is $45 this includes the first 3 fixtures, each fixture then after is $15, each water service is $25, each building or storm sewer, sewer tap or to open any street, alley, public right of way or any other public property is $50.

        I would not risk my Drain Layers license, get the permit. Chicago is cracking down on unpermitted work.

              Here in Seattle it would be a repair an no permit would be needed if no piping was changed at all.

                  I think I'd set an appointment with this lady and the Building Official to discuss what she wants to do without a permit. You won't be doing the work anyway. But she will have a permit, one way or another.
