BS EN 1717: Protection against pollution of potable water in water installations and general requirements of devices to prevent pollution by backflow. 21 Cold Water Storage Cisterns Cisterns can be manufactured from galvanised mild steel (large nondomestic capacities), polypropylene or glass reinforced plastics. They must be well insulated and supported on adequate bearers to spread the concentrated load. Plastic cisterns will require uniform support on boarding over bearers. A dustproof cover is essential to prevent contamination.

Appliance Loading units Hand basin 1„5 to 3 (depends on application) WC cistern 2 Washing machine 3 Dishwasher 3 Shower 3 Sink (13 mm tap) 3 Sink (19 mm tap) 5 Bath (19 mm tap) 10 Bath (25 mm tap) 22 By determining the number of appliances on a pipework system and summating the loading units, an equivalent flow in litres per second can be established from the following conversion graph: 30 Pipe Sizing ^ Head Loss and Flow Rate Pressure or head loss in pipework systems can be expressed as the relationship between available pressure (kPa) or head (m) and the effective length (m) of pipework.

G. in an office block it may commence an hour before normal occupancy and run on for a couple of hours after. Water delivery should be just enough to meet demand. When demand is low a pressure regulated motorised bleed valve opens to recirculate water back to the break tank. 26 Delayed Action Float Valve If normal float valves are used to regulate cistern water supply from an auto-pneumatic cylinder (page 25), then cylinder and pump activity will be frequent and uneconomic. Therefore to regulate activity and deliveries to the cistern, a delayed action float valve mechanism is fitted to the storage cistern.
