The proper installation of water supply and drainage disposal
systems provides a convenient service of great importance for public health.
Unfortunately bad plumbing is the bane of many countries.
In Nepal, good training facilities are now available in the
Sanitary Section of the Mechanical Training Centre (MTC). Lessons in classrooms
and workshops are based on information gained through many years of practical
experience. This experience has been compiled into book form for use both in
Nepal and overseas.
These three part guidelines have been revised and expanded by
MTC for professional planners and skilled sanitary fitters. The first section
deals with drinking water installations, both direct mains connection and
distribution from water tanks. The second section - much expanded in this
edition - explains drainage requirements, including the modern stack
system and the updated version of divided drainage of soil and waste waters. The
third part consists of details of individual apparatus, tables of connecting and
disposal values, ISO-Norm symbols, etc. There are many drawings illustrating the
text which has been written in precise but simple language.
