This module deals with the pipework installation within a building that carries away waste water from sanitary fittings including WCs, wash basins, showers, sinks and floor gullies. This is known as Sanitary Pipework. Once this pipework goes below ground, it is termed “Drainage”. This course deals only with Sanitary Pipework – ie that above ground. This module is also concerned only with Sanitary Pipework Systems that operate by gravity. There are vacuum systems and pumped systems but these have very particular requirements and make up only a very small fraction of Sanitary Pipework Systems in buildings. Specialist sanitary installations serving laboratories, commercial kitchens or industrial processes are also excluded from this module.
