: I'm in the process of installing a new gas line for a pool heater using an one inch pipe from the meter to the backyard. My question is that is this job requires a licensed Plumber/contractor by law?
: I live in West Covina California.
Most plumbing codes allow homeowners to work on their own homes and pipes. They DO prohibit non-licensed, non-homeowners from doing the work. Most locals like to see plans before the permit is issued for homeowner work. That way they can give advice and check for any code problems before the work is done. Problems occur when handymen, perform un-permited plumbing without knowledge of the plumbing codes. I can't tell you how many, can I say "goofy" things I've had to fix behind handymen.
