      Can anyone please advise me on how I can get my hands on a typical, generic
      plumbing schematic for the average Australian home? I have been told
      that the pressure on the hot water supply line and the cold water supply
      line, in the average Aussie home, is different. As all plumbing
      systems, with which I am familiar, are closed loop, the pressure is
      balanced on both the cold and hot side. I can’t understand how this is
      possible unless there are two separate water supply lines for each
      house. Can you steer me in the right direction in order to figure this

      Kindest Regards,

      Steve Rork

      Pressure limiting valve on the hot water system, BUT not all hot water systems.


      All advice is given with-out seeing the job, and hence all advice MUST be taken as advice with limited knowledge on the exact situation. NO responsibility can or
      will be taken. And yes, I am a licensed plumber with my own business in Brisbane Australia
