Hi Ken,

Home Owners can do their own plumbing in their house, provided that it is done to code. Otherwise, it must be done by a qualified plumber.

If you have questions, you can always contact your local Plumbing Inspector. If you are trying to do things properly, they are there to help.

A homeowner in Canada can pull their own permits and then get it done by a professional or do it themselves, keep in mind it must pass all codes and be inspected by your local development authority to pass. It is usually best to hire a professional plumber, get them to pull the permit and have it inspected, then you have a "warranty" on all work from them and if something is not done right they also have to correct it and re-inspect. I never suggest homeowners "ever" do any higher skilled trades work like "plumbing/electrical" unless they are in the specific trade themselves. From personal experience, just asking for expensive headaches for all parties involved. Considering what this unit is going to cost & compliances required, do it right the 1st time with Pros's.
