Lowe's Informative - Water Heater & Permit
BRIMFIELD, OHIO -- I recently needed a replacement gas hot water heater. I live in Brimfield Township, Portage County, OH. Lowes gave me a reasonable price for the water heater and installation was $269.00 not too bad, I am thinking. Then they told me it would be another $75.00 for a permit to install it. I told them I'd get back to them. I called the Brimfield Township and was told "I did not need a permit".
I called back Lowes, "It's a County Law" I am told. So I called Portage County Building permit. Guess what? NO PERMIT IS NEEDED!!! So what is Lowes charging $75.00 for?
To make a long story short, I will not be doing business with Lowes.
