Class A recycled water inspections

Plumbers are required to book inspections for new Class A recycled water connections.

There are three inspections, and some can be combined in the one visit:

  • R1: From meter to dwelling. This inspection takes place when the recycled water and drinking water meter assemblies and the pipes to the house have been installed.
  • R2: Rough in. This inspection takes place during construction, before the plasterboard goes on. This is to check that the recycled water pipes are only connected to the approved points.
  • R3: Commissioning and fit off. The plumber must be on site for this inspection only. This inspection ensures that the drinking water and recycled water services have been correctly installed and there are no cross connections.

R1 inspections can only be booked in conjunction with an R2 or R3 inspection.
