Inspections may be requested for times that are outside of our normal working hours (6:30 am to 3:00 pm/ Monday through Friday; except holidays). To request an off-hour inspection, one of the Senior Inspectors shall be contacted by phone or email. The following process is applied to determine scheduling an off-hour inspection.

  • The request shall be confirmed by a Senior Inspector a minimum of 24 hours prior to the time of inspection.
  • The senior inspector must confirm the availability of a plumbing inspector for the day and time of the off-hour inspection. If an inspector is not available, the request may be denied, or the senior may offer alternate times of when an inspector is available.
    • Call-out fee
      • A minimum four (4) hours at overtime rate ($301.50) per hour
        • When an off-hour inspection requires an inspector to report back to the workplace (inclusive of travel and actual time worked)
        • Exception: When the call-out is within four (4) hours prior to normal working hours (6:30 am/ M-F), only the actual inspection and travel time will be charged at the overtime rate.
