Performance Requirements for Pressurized Flushing Devices for Plumbing Fixtures
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This Standard covers pressurized flushing devices (PFDs) intended to flush water closets, urinals, and other plumbing fixtures and specifies requirements for materials, design, methods of operation, test methods, and markings.
In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.
Notes accompanying sections do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a section is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.
Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
SI units are the units of record in Canada. In this Standard the inch/pound units are shown in parentheses. The values stated in each measurement system are equivalent in application; however, each system is to be used independently. Combining values from the two measurement systems can result in non-conformance with this Standard. All references to gallons are to U.S. gallons.
