Domestic installations

Consumers┬┤ drinking water

A well designed domestic installation, built with suitable materials is the crucial basis for meeting the requirements of the drinking water ordinance at the place of use. Unfortunately, domestic drinking water installations are sometimes built with unsuitable materials or without due care. As a result, precious drinking water can be contaminated by materials that do not belong in potable water supplies.

Therefore, close cooperation between all parties involved, from construction designers to installers and consumers, is an essential requirement in achieving modern-day quality standards. The selection and combining of materials must be incorporated in the planning process.

We gladly support you with our expertise.
