WATER CALCULATION TESTING REGULATIONS
It is important to remember that you have the responsibility to ensure that your new build property is compliant. Part G regulations state that new build properties must use 125 litres of water per person per day. In some cases, this can be 105 litres depending on the local authority.
Part G deals with sanitation, hot water safety and water efficiency requirements, so it is important that your property is compliant. If not, you could be served with an enforcement notice. This regulation seeks to ensure that your new build property has a safe water supply and is not wasting water. It also requires you to keep a record of any appliances using the water supply to ensure they are efficient and includes many more regulations you must follow.
To ensure you are compliant with Part G regulations we can complete the water calculations for you and help ensure that building control is provided with the correct water efficiency calculations, to save you time and money.
WHEN SHOULD YOU GET YOUR WATER CALCULATIONS DONE?
Your water calculations should be done as soon as you are able to follow the three rules below:
- You know which products are going to be used
- Before you’ve purchased any products
- When you have a clear idea of the number of fittings
Following these 3 rules means you can get a more accurate water calculation. Plus, it allows for flexibility if any alterations need to be made.
You shouldn’t make any purchases on products before doing the calculation. If they don’t comply, they may need replacing and this could cause you to incur more charges.
