Description

Acceptable Solution G13/AS2 provides a means of compliance with parts of Building Code Clause G13 Foul water, in particular below ground drainage. Clause G13 requires the safe disposal of foul water to prevent illness and the loss of amenity due to odour and accumulated matter.

Under this clause, buildings in which sanitary fixtures and sanitary appliances using water-borne waste disposal are installed must be provided with adequate plumbing and drainage to appropriate outfalls or system for storage/treatment.  This safeguards people from infection or contamination of the water supply.

It sets out requirements for the construction of plumbing systems and protects against loss of amenity due to odour or accumulation of offensive matter from foul water disposal.

 

Scope

This Acceptable Solution is for below ground non-pressure (gravity flow) foul water drains having a diameter of no greater than 150 mm.
It does not apply to foul water drainage systems where it is necessary to dispose of industrial liquid wastes, chemical or toxic wastes and other wastes which cannot be discharged to a sewer without pre-treatment.
