The design is to be at a scale of 1: 100 in PDF format and include connection of services to the waste water tank and recycled water services connected to the following: See example Water Services Design Plan

  • All toilet cisterns;
  • Clothes washing machines - cold tap only (No cold drinking water tap is permitted);
  • External cold water taps (additional drinking water cold water taps may also be provided alongside);
  • Rainwater tanks are not required.

The Landscape design must clearly show all landscaping in accordance with Flow Systems required clearances around its network infrastructure. See Flow Systems Landscaping guide for details
