Water Services and Sanitary Plumbing

  • Ivor H. Seeley
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter examines the methods of supplying water to buildings, cold and hot water supply arrangements, sanitary appliances, waste systems and hot water heating. These aspects all relate to ‘sanitation and services’ but are included here as it was felt that a study of ‘building technology’ would not be complete without them.
