Q. WHEN DO I NEED TO INSTALL WHOLESITE PROTECTION?

The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations and Scottish Water Byelaws only specify two situations where wholesite protection may be required or considered necessary.

1.      To prevent backflow between separately occupied premises, an example could be in blocks of flats or other buildings of multipleoccupancy          such industrial units or shopping arcade.

2.       A water supplier may consider additional protection is needed for the whole or part of buildings where there is an increased risk of                         backflow occurring.

Your local water supplier is best placed to advise on the situations which may require additional protection.
