The big takeaway on this video is to keep your greywater system defined as “Simple.” Per the plumbing code, this will keep the permitting to a minimum. As I write this in 2019, a simple non-pressurized systems is $0.00 zero dollars in Long Beach, California as opposed to
$600 dollars in Los Angeles ($300 to the City of Los Angeles and $300 for the County Health Department).
The same greywater system that is classified as “Complex” over 250 gallons and/or pressurized distribution piping. The permitting fees go up to $2,400 for the Los Angeles County Health Department and $300 for the City of Los Angeles. Long Beach is great in that the fees are still Zero. Unfortunately, the review is a little more time at the permit counter.
