Drainage Protection and Survey

The specification is to require that the Builder:

  1. Provides protection to pipework below slabs on grade during concrete pours.
  2. Provides to the Superintendent a video of all drainage pipework under floor slabs shortly after the slab pours are complete.
  3. Effectively seals all sanitary outlets in the building during construction to avoid any foreign material being put into the drainage system.
  4. Provide a video of all drainage pipework before Practical Completion.

These precautions are in addition to the water tests and pipe capping normally required in hydraulics specifications.
