    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the requirements for the installation of hot and cold water supply, sanitary plumbing and drainage, and stormwater drainage, for domestic plumbing work associated with buildings not exceeding three floors in height.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out the requirements for the installation of hot and cold water supply, sanitary plumbing and drainage and stormwater drainage, for domestic plumbing work.This Standard does not apply to water services for firefighting, such as hydrants, hose reels and sprinkler systems.Sections 1 to 4 of this Standard are taken from AS/NZS 3500 Parts 1.2, 2.2, and 4.2. Where there is any conflict between provisions in this Standard, Parts 1.2, 2.2, and 4.2 shall prevail. Section 5 of this Standard is based on AS/NZS 3500.3.2, and includes design information. Consequently, it is recommended installations be based exclusively on either Section 5 or AS/NZS 3500.3.2.Illustrations used in this Standard are diagrammatic only and have been chosen without prejudice.
