Cross Linked Polyethylene (PE-X) Pipe in Hot Water Applications - Guidance for Determining Conformance with AS/NZS 3500
The National Construction Code Volume 3 (Plumbing Code of Australia - PCA) is published by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) and provides the minimum safety, health, amenity and sustainability objectives for plumbing and drainage in Australia. The ABCB also publishes a schedule of specifications for the mandatory WaterMark Certification Scheme for plumbing and drainage products. The Standard series AS/NZS 3500 in turn provides a set of practices that are deemed to satisfy the PCA objectives. In order to comply with the deemed to satisfy requirements under the PCA it is essential that products are certified under the WaterMark scheme where required and the installation is carried out in accordance with the relevant section of AS/NZS 3500.
