Water Fittings Regulations

23 Aug 2022

In order to protect your water supply from contamination, it is important that the fixtures and fittings through which that water travels, are correctly installed and in a good state of repair. There are national requirements for the design, materials, installation and maintenance of plumbing systems, water fittings and water-using appliances known as The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999.

These regulations were set to: protect your drinking water supply from contamination, prevent inefficient use and waste of water and ensure water is correctly measured when used. The Regulations apply in England and Wales to all plumbing systems, water fittings and equipment supplied, or to be supplied, with water from the public water supply. This applies to plumbing systems in all types of premises.
