PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine Attorney General Janet Mills says the state is settling its case against Bath Fitter, a Portland company she says engaged in unlicensed plumbing activities.

Mills says Bath Fitter used non-conforming construction contracts and installed plumbing before permits were issued, among other violations. The settlement says Bath Fitter must now comply with state law. The settlement also requires that Bath Fitter provide a free inspection of its work by an independent, licensed plumber for any homeowner with a Bath Fitter installation.

Consumers may request inspections until Sept. 1. Corrections must be made at no cost to the consumer if plumbing does not comply with codes.

Mills says Bath Fitter also misrepresented employees’ license status and engaged in plumbing installations that may have violated state code.
