Recycled water information for plumbers
Are you a plumber who works with recycled water or alternative water connections?
If you work with recycled water in the our service area, you must complete our plumber training. On completion of the training you will receive a Recycled Water Training Card, which you keep with you as proof that you have completed the required training.
There are special requirements when working with recycled water connections, and the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) is involved in the compliance process. Three inspections are required to ensure that the recycled water is connected at these stages:
- Meter to house.
- Rough-in stage (pipes visible before walls go up).
It is the plumber’s responsibility to book in three inspections of the recycled water works for each step in the building process, as outlined above and ensuring that the recycled water connections are certified.
Failure to obtain certification of the recycled water connection could prevent the residents being issued with a certificate of occupancy.
