GENERAL

If you have pre-customised this work section using the "questions and answers" provided as part of the downloading process, it may be necessary to amend some clauses to suit the final project-specific version.

 

The section must still be checked and customised to suit the project being specified, by removing any other irrelevant details and adding project-specific details and selections.

 

This section relates to Marley dBlue® acoustic soil and waste system, a gravity flow sanitary system, for residential and commercial use.

Also suitable for internal stormwater downpipe systems in commercial and high density residential applications.  Unsuitable for external use.

It includes:

 

Also suitable for applications where disposal of continuous hot waste up to 90°C is required, such as commercial kitchens.

Modify or extend the above description to suit the project being specified.

Written for a combined foul and grey water.

Some industrial effluent may need to be specified separately.

This section is not intended for vacuum drainage systems.

Provide additional project-specific clauses for specialty installations (healthcare facilities).

3.8
FITTINGS ACCESS

Fit and fix traps and wastes to enable access for cleaning and for maintaining the total system.

3.9
CONFIRM LOCATIONS

Unless the location and height are clearly delineated on the drawings, confirm installation height and plan locations of sanitary fittings before commencing the piping installation.
