Q & A - Baths and Showers / Re: Shower head MIN 300mm below top of enclosure?
« Last post by jackmarrow on July 10, 2020, 09:46:34 PM »
203cm above the floor is the standard, minimum is 183cm. But some hotels has their own standard as it depends on their guests.

Q & A - Hot Water Cylinders / Re: HWC pressure relief drains
« Last post by Three Kings NZ on July 01, 2020, 05:16:10 PM »
No it does not comply. the plumber should have run the drain to an approved point of discharge. E.g a gully trap.

Thank you very much. I thought that would be the case.

Q & A - Hot Water Cylinders / HWC pressure relief drains
« Last post by Three Kings NZ on June 30, 2020, 06:03:28 PM »
Hi there,

I had a new hot water cylinder installed last year. I noticed some dripping sounds on the weekend, as the HWC was heating, and went under the house to investigate. It appears that both the hot and cold water pressure relief valves just drain directly onto the earth under the house, right next to two piles. The dripping sound was (what google tells me) the cold water pressure relief valve dripping.

Is having these relief valves just drain under the house next to piles a code compliant installation? Do they not need to drain to the waste water? Should i get the plumber back to remedy this? Seems weird that they would just drain next to something structural.

Thanks for your help!

I know this is an old post but does this statement from Rinnai classing it as a combustion inlet for an appliance mean there is only 500mm needed from the regulator vent ?. I come across a lot of installations where the bottles are just to the side of the infinity

Has the level of fail reached maximum capacity? Just as we predicted the Covid-19 pandemic is being used as an excuse for previous failures.

Things appear to be changing at pace but are they for the best?  Here's some thoughts.

Q & A - Water Pressure / Re: recent drop in cold water pressure in shower
« Last post by Plumber on April 30, 2020, 11:56:43 AM »
Many things could cause this including:

Blocked strainer (debris blocking one of the valves)
Faulty limiting valve, or even something could be wrong with the shower mixer. Its hard to say unless you get someone to look at it really. Just get a registered plumber in to investigate.

Q & A - Water Pressure / recent drop in cold water pressure in shower
« Last post by serviens on April 29, 2020, 09:45:45 PM »
Hello,
During the COVID lockdown, I wasn't sure if I can really get a plumber out, but I have a shower in the upstairs bathroom. The hot water cylinder is the other side of the wall, and normally the water pressure was perfectly fine. However, over the last month or so the cold water pressure has dropped significantly. I have no knowledge of plumbing, so hoping for some guidance here for what to check, etc. The sink taps are excellent pressure in the same bathroom, and the hot water is fine and hot, with moderate pressure. I've taken some shots of the HWC and hope someone could suggest some clues. I did notice my water bills have shot up, though I haven't discovered any leaks anywhere.
Please let me know if there's any information I could provide?
Warm Regards, and stay safe
