The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 are statutory requirements for the design, installation, composition and maintenance of water fixtures and fittings.
“Water fittings” means any item that is connected to your water supply, (such as taps, valves, cisterns and solder) and apply from the point where water enters the property’s underground service pipe.
The Water Regulations were created under the Water Industry Act 1991 to ensure the safety of the water supply.
The five main purposes of the Water Regulations are to protect against:
- undue consumption
- erroneous measurement
For further information, please see the document below.
Everyone must comply with the Water Regulations and water companies have an obligation to enforce them.
