    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Applies to waste water drainage systems operating under gravity. Applicable to drainage systems inside dwellings, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings. A variety of systems have been developed due to the differences in plumbing in Europe. Sets out principles to be followed when installing and maintaining waste water and rainwater gravity drainage systems. Deals with support, fixing, containment of thermal movement, protection and accessibility of the system.
