Dealing With Local Council Plumbing Regulations
If you’re just looking to fit a new kitchen sink in your home then you’re probably not going to need very much about local council regulations in relation to plumbing on your property. Even though you may own the property itself you’re connected to a public water supply unless you have a well and you’re also connected to a public sewage system unless you’re living in the countryside and using a septic tank, Even if you are using a septic tank and your own water well you might still be subject to local laws and stipulations.
The plumbing regulations in your area might seem to be just there to cause you headaches but they’re a matter of keeping order in how people draw water from the public supply or put waste back into the public waste system – otherwise you’re looking at chaos and God-knows-what being flushed down toilets and making it’s way back into the water supply. So in the same way there are building regulations to prevent eyesores clogging up the local skyline there are plumbing regulations to achieve the same effect when it comes to waste and water management.
If you’re embarking on a major plumbing overhaul or fitting a swimming pool (lucky you!) or pond to your property it won’t do any harm to give the local council a call to see if there’s any paperwork that needs to be filled out – the same thing applies to an extension you plan on building onto your property that will use public waste or water pipes. You might not want to deal with the red tape and bureaucracy now but it’s a lot better (and probably cheaper) than dealing with council fines 2 or 3 months later for not adhering to their rules. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face – so to speak.
