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.
