Specification for design, installation, testing and maintenance of services supplying water for domestic use within buildings and their cartilages

Executive summary

Requirements and recommendations for design, installation, testing and maintenance of services supplying water for domestic use within buildings and their cartilages.

Abstract

This British Standard specifies requirements for and provides recommendations on the design, installation, alteration, testing and maintenance of services supplying water for domestic use within buildings and their curtilages. It covers the system of pipes, fittings and connected appliances installed to supply any building, whether domestic or not, with water for drinking, culinary, domestic laundry, ablutionary, cleaning and sanitary purposes.

This standard deals only with low temperature systems. It does not cover systems that are designed to operate with steam or high temperature hot water.

This standard does not cover domestic central heating systems.

Although many of its recommendations will be applicable, this standard does not cover fire fighting services nor water supply for industrial or other specialist purposes other than to indicate precautions that should be taken when these are used in association with other water services.
