RPZ FAQs: General

An RPZ valve is installed at premises I am responsible for, what do I need to know?

If there is an RPZ valve installed at a premises you are responsible for, the things you need to do include:

  • Familiarise yourself with the RPZ AIM
  • Make sure the local water undertaker has been notified the valve exists and has granted consent and familiarise yourself with the conditions of consent
  • Confirm the valve has been installed and tested in accordance with the AIM and the conditions of consent issued by the local water undertaker
  • Ensure the valve is ‘in test’ – it has been tested within the timeframe specified in the condition of consent, by a competent tester, and meets the required standard
  • Make certain a copy of the test report has been sent to the local water undertaker within the required timescales
  • As part of your maintenance procedures consider maintaining a technical file
  • Notify the local water undertaker if you plan on any alterations to the plumbing on site including removing, relocating or replacing the RPZ valve
