In Design of Potable Water Plumbing Systems, you'll learn ...

  • Understand the factors influencing the potable water demand
  • Learn the model plumbing codes applicable to potable water plumbing systems
  • Learn the Hunter’s method for approximating peak demand loadings on a building’s water distribution system
  • Describe the terms maximum flow, average flow, maximum probable flow, continuous demand and intermittent demand

Overview

Credit: 4 PDH

Length: 32 pages

Plumbing water distribution systems are designed on the idea of the most probable peak demand loading, which reflects the worst-case scenario for a system. These types of systems require different considerations than large-scale water distribution networks. The difference is primarily attributed to uncertainty regarding the use of plumbing fixtures, hence uncertainty in demand loadings.

This 4-hour course provides comprehensive design methodology and underlying principles of plumbing water systems. This course addresses the design criteria for estimating potable water demand for residential and transitory use facilities. This course is intended to provide basic information, which may be used for conceptual design in the absence of any more appropriate information.

This course is aimed at students, architects, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, facility designers, health and environment professionals, energy auditors and anyone who wants a basic understanding of plumbing systems.
