Yes. When we started the design of the new Energov software system we added some new required inspections. One of these inspections was the pressure test on swimming pool lines from the equipment to the pool. The International Swimming Pool and Spa Code(ISPSC) has required this since its inception in 2012. Under section 311.9 “Circulation system piping, other than that integrally included in the manufacture of the pool or spa, shall be subjected to a hydrostatic pressure test of 25 pounds per square inch (psi) (172.4 kPa). This pressure shall be held for not less than 15 minutes.” A DPOR licensed plumbing contractor is required to plumb an in-ground swimming pool. Any other trades associated with the installation of an in-ground swimming pool shall be licensed in that trade (i.e., electrical and fuel gas).

1) Standalone permits; not being linked to a building permit:

Select “apply” beside the trade type that you need.
No. Prior to adding a contact (contractor, lien agent, RLD, owner, representative, etc.), please use the Search bar feature to see if the contact already exists, rather than creating a new one each time.

The new permitting software is parcel driven, you will have different permit numbers for every permit issued. The older permitting system was based on the permit number of the primary permit and each permit afterwards was simply assigned a new prefix with the same number as the building permit (BP-2021-00048, EL-2021-00048, PL-2023-00048).
Yes, until June 30th, 2023. Beginning July 1st, 2023, the county will only accept electronic submittals for review.
A legacy permit is a permit that was issued prior to the effective date of the county’s new permitting software which took place on November 14th, 2022. A legacy permit will typically have approved paper plans, and a different looking permit number than those issued under the new permitting software.
First you will need access to Google Chrome. This program works best with the county’s permitting software. Remember, it is very important to provide an email address, preferably not a personal email account but rather a generic account, when setting up your account. There are two types of accounts: a name account and a company account. A company account is recommended for any firm that has more than one person applying for permits or requesting inspections.
