It's only two inspections
First inspection is the Toho sewer connection. It verifies that the connection to the Toho cleanout is correct.
Second inspection is the Building Final/ Toho Efficiency Program (TEP) inspection. This inspection verifies that the meter boxes, meters, cleanout pads and curb markings are correct. TEP inspection consists of checking landscaping and irrigation along with the plumbing and appliances inside the building.
Avoid unnecessary fees
Only request an inspection when ready. Inspections incur a $50 fee if an inspection failure needs to be issued on first visit and a $75 fee for each failure thereafter until they pass inspection. Avoid these fees.
Cancellations must include address, permit number, type of inspection and be emailed to TWACI@tohowater.com before 6 a.m.
If you have any questions, please contact Toho’s Chief Construction Inspector Joe Jayne at 407-944-5020 or send an email to TWACI@tohowater.com.
