  • let's be honest. There are a lot of crazy devices, pumps and p.ills that all claim to be the solution to adding BIG length to your penis. However, most, if not all of these solutions don't pan out, or the growth is only temporary. I guess you could always consider surgery, but if you are anything like me, the thought of having a sharp metal object anywhere near your junk makes you quiver with blood curdling fear :-) Well, it just so happens my friend John, who I met at a men's health conference a few years back, has literally stumbled upon the key to natural male growth. Unlike other systems out there, his involves two unique components: 1. Restarting biological growth that boys experienced during puberty, turning them into men. 2. Performing tested and targeted exercises to encourage blood flow and supersize growth. John has just released a completely ZERO COST enlargement exercises guide where you can discover the proven techniques to start REAL and PERMANENT growth.

  2. 2. What is Plumbing? The art and science of creating and maintaining sanitary conditions in buildings Or The art and science of installing, repairing and servicing of pipes, fixtures and appurtenances necessary for bringing in water supply, distributing it within and removing the liquid and water-borne wastes It includes fixtures and fixture traps; soil and waste pipes; vent pipes; building drain and building sewer; storm drainage pipes, their devices, appurtenances and connections to all within or adjacent to the building Plumbing has been a part of the human race since the dawn of human civilization. Some civilizations saw very sophisticated systems for their time while the services declined marginally during Earliest plumbing arrangements were unearthed in the Indus Valley Civilization almost 5500years old Another civilization with highly developed plumbing system was the Egyptian civilization and the Romans. Aqueducts were constructed to carry water from sources to houses. Extensive underground sewage systems. Public baths. Sanitary systems declined after the Romans and AD476 and only around the 1500’s to 1800’s were concerns raised for better sanitary systems!

  6. 6. The Basic Plumbing Components of any building: 1. 2. 3. 4. Water supply distributing pipes Fixture and fixture traps Soil, waste and vent pipes Storm water drainage
  7. 7. NBC GENERAL REQUIREMENTS for design considerations: •Smooth joints •Avoid noise transmission •Avoid formation of air locks •Avoid unsightly arrangement •Economy in labour and materials •No piping under wastewater pipes •Gradual size and direction changes •Maximum rate of discharge required •Water-tight pipes and pipe-connections •No back-flow towards the source of supply •Wholesome water supply for drinking and culinary purposes •No direct connection of boilers or hot machinery, use feed cistern •No cross-connection between pure and contaminated water pipes •Sufficient strength of pipes underground or under traffic loads or frost •Maintain definite air gap in all appliances (minimum 15 cm or twice pipe bore for storage cisterns) •Corrosion protection measures in corrosive environments (e.g. corrosive soils, proximity to electric cables), e.g. exterior CI tubing
  8. 8. Supply System
  9. 9. 3.1.1 Potable Water All premises intended for human habitation, occupancy, or use shall be provided with supply of potable water. This water supply shall not be connected with unsafe water resources, nor shall it be subject to the hazards of backflow. 3.1.2 Water Provision Plumbing fixtures, devices and appurtenances shall be provided with water in sufficient volume and at pressures adequate to enable them to function properly and without undue noise under normal conditions of use. There should beat least a residual head of 0.018 N/mm2 at the consumer‘s tap. NOTE—The residual head shall be taken at the highest farthest outlets in the building. 3.1.14 Maintenance Plumbing systems shall be maintained in a safe and serviceable condition. 3.1.15 Accessibility All plumbing fixtures shall be so installed with regard to spacing as to be accessible for their intended use and for cleaning. All doors, windows and any other device needing access within the toilet shall be so located that they have proper access.
  10. 10. 4.1.1 Water Supply for Residences A minimum of 70 to 100 litres per head per day may be considered adequate for domestic needs of urban communities, apart from non-domestic needs as flushing requirements. As a general rule the following rates per capita per day may be considered minimum for domestic and non-domestic needs: NOTE— The value of water supply given as 150 to 200 litres per head per day maybe reduced to 135litresper head per day for houses for Lower Income Groups (LIG) and Economically Weaker Section of Society(EWS),depending upon prevailing conditions. For residential buildings, the requirements of water shall be based on the actual number of occupants; where this information is not available, the number of occupants for each residential unit may be based on a family of five. For assessing the population in other occupants, reference may be made to Part 4 ‗Fire and Life Safety‘. Out of the 150 to 200 litres per head per day, 45 litres per head per day may be taken for flushing requirements and the remaining quantity for other domestic purposes.
  11. 11. 4.1.2 Water Supply for Buildings Other than Residences The NBC states several codes for plumbing needs of buildings of various other uses. Refer Section 4.1 of part9 for the same. 4.1.4 Water Supply for Fire Fighting Purposes The Authority shall make provision to meet the water supply requirements for fire fighting in the City/area, depending on the population density and types of occupancy. Provision shall be made by the owner of the building for water supply requirements for fire fighting purposes within the building, depending upon the height and occupancy of the building, in conformity with the requirements laid down in Part 4 ‗Fire and Life Safety‘. The requirements regarding water supply in storage tanks, capacity of fue pumps, arrangements of wet riser-cum-downcomer and wet riser installations for buildings above 15 m in height, depending upon the occupancy use, shall
  12. 12. Water Sources and Quality: The NBC guidelines lay out the rules to ensure water quality at the various stages of supply and consumption and disposal. Potable or for other purposes. Fresh water sources: lakes/rivers. Waste water reclamation 4.4 Storage of Water 4.4.1 In a building, provision is required to be made for storage of water for the following reasons: a) to provide against interruptions of the supply caused by repairs to mains, etc; b) to reduce the maximum rate of demand on the mains; c) to tide over periods of intermittent supply; and d) to maintain a storage for the fire fighting requirement of the building (see Part 4 ‗Fire and Life Safety‘ ). There are clear guidelines as to what material is to be used for various uses and their design considerations. While designing we need to keep in mind the design of 1. Manholes 2. Catch rings and ladders 3. Overflow pipes 4. Vent pipes 5. Scour pipes 6. Connections to these 7. Tanks
  13. 13. Calculation of Drain/Trap Diameter: 4.4.10 The quantity of water to be stored shall be calculated taking into account the following factors: a) hours of supply at sufficiently high pressure to fill up the overhead storage tanks; b) frequency of replenishment of overhead tanks, during the 24 h; c) rate and regularity of supply; and d) consequences of exhausting storage particularly in case of public buildings like hospitals.

  15. 15. 4.7 Distribution Systems in Multi-Storeyed Buildings 4.7.1 There are four basic methods of distribution of water to a multistoreyed buildings. 1. Direct supply from mains to ablutionary taps and kitchen with WCs and urinals supplied by overhead tanks. 2. Direct Pumping Systems 3. Hydro-Pneumatic Systems 4. Overhead Tanks Distribution 4.7.2 Direct Supply System This system is adopted when adequate pressure is available round the clock at the topmost floor. With limited pressure available in most city mains, water from direct supply is normally not available above two or three floors. 4.7.3 Direct Pumping Water is pumped directly into the distribution system without the aid of any overhead tank, except for flushing purposes. The pumps are controlled by a pressure switch installed on the line.
  16. 16. 4.7.4 HydroPneumatic Systems Hydro-pneumatic system is a variation of direct pumping system. An air-tight pressure vessel is installed on the line to regulate the operation of the pumps. The vessel capacity shall be based on the cut-in and cut-out pressure of the pumping system depending upon allowable start/stops of the pumping system. The system shall have reliable power supply to avoid breakdown in the water supply.
  17. 17. 4.7.5 over-head Tank Distribution This is the most common of the distribution systems adopted by various type of buildings. The system comprises pumping water to one or more overhead tanks placed at the top most location of the hydraulic zone. Water collected in the overhead tank is distributed to the various parts of the building by a set of pipes located generally on the terrace.

  21. 21. Plumbing Fixtures
  22. 22. 3.1.5 Plumbing Fixtures It is recommended that each family dwelling unit should have at least one water closet, one lavatory, one kitchen wash place or a sink, and one bathing wash place or shower to meet the basic requirements of sanitation and personal hygiene. 3.1.8 Fixture Traps and Vent Pipes Each fixture directly connected to the drainage system shall be equipped with a liquid seal trap, Trap seals shall be maintained to prevent sewer gas, other potentially dangerous or noxious fumes, or vermin from entering the building. Further, the drainage system shall be designed to provide an adequate circulation of air in all pipes with no danger of siphonage, aspiration, or forcing of trap seals under conditions of ordinary use by providing vent pipes throughout the system.
  23. 23. Drainage System
  24. 24. 3.1.6 Drainage System The drainage system shall be designed, installed and maintained to guard against fouling, deposit of solids and clogging and with adequate cleanouts so arranged that the pipes may be readily cleaned. 3.1.9 Foul Air Exhaust Each vent terminal shall extend to the outer air and be so installed as to minimize the possibilities of clogging and the return of foul air to the building, as it conveys potentially noxious or explosive gases to the outside atmosphere. All vent pipes shall be provided with a cowl.

  26. 26. CASE STUDIES
  32. 32. POSITIVES: • Intelligent placing of Ducts and Wet areas to facilitate easy outflow and maintenance. • Separation of Toilet and Kitchen sewage lines for separate drain out into respective pipelines. • Separate Water Supply pipes for Domestic and Flushing purposes. • Rainwater pipes are place in appropriate corners, having maximum catchment area, reducing number of pipes required. • New-age flush and tap systems used. • Pipework hidden from plain view in elevation with the help of extruded Chajjas and Elevation Fins. • No overlap of Bathrooms with bedrooms or kitchen between levels. • Toilets ventilated into ducts, preventing escape of foul smell to Living areas. NEGATIVES: • • No provision for Hot water supply in Bathrooms and Kitchen. Door clearance for WCs not standard.
  33. 33. CITY OF MILWAUKEE CROSS CONNECTION PROGRAM Milwaukee is the largest city in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It is located on the south-western shore of Lake Michigan.
  34. 34. Map and Location of Milwaukee City
  35. 35. WHAT IS BACK FLOW? In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower etc. When pressure fails or is reduced, (as may happen if a water main bursts, pipes freeze or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system), then such reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground, from storage or from other sources to be drawn up into the system.
  36. 36. WHAT IS CROSS CONNECTION? Cross-connections, are defined as actual or potential connections between a potable water supply and a non-potable source, where it is possible for a contaminant to enter the drinking water supply.
  37. 37. STATISTICS: • Approximately 15,800 commercial water accounts serve buildings in Milwaukee. • The Plumbing Inspectors developed a reference manual identifying the various types of cross connection configurations and the proper cross connection control devices to correct them. Typical Cross Connections: Apartments - Laundry Tub Faucets - Hose Faucets - Boilers Office Buildings - Boilers - Chillers - Soap Dispensers - Water Closets - Coffee Makers
