(2) The permit holder shall be responsible for assuring that plumbing work is not covered before the department has granted permission to cover said work. The inspection shall be made during daylight hours unless it is more convenient to all parties involved to make the inspection at night.

(3) Upon completion of the final inspection and approval of the plumbing work, the department shall, if requested, issue the permit holder a certificate of compliance.

(4) If the inspection reveals code violations, the permit holder shall be given an opportunity to make corrections.
