      Good Day All,

      I was wondering if any of you can assist me with some considerations and tips on designing a ring mains for a three storey building..We plan to do it all in copper…

      The Storage Unit and Heat Pump water heater will be at basement level..

      Then we will have

      1) 4 apartments (4ppl per unit) on the 1st floor
      2) 8 apartments (2ppl per unit) on the 2nd floor
      3) 10 apartments (2ppl per unit) on the 3rd floor

      I usually only work on domestic installations, but I am clueless on these bigger designs…

      Info that I require..

      1-) Piping diameters upwards to each floor
      2-) Piping diameters branching off to each floor
      3-) Piping diameters branching off into each apartment.
      4-) Pump(flow rate) required to handle this
      5-) How will it be controlled, as we do not want the ring mains pump to circulate throughout the day. it is residential and we will only need circulation around 16:00 to 08:00..

      Any info will be appreciated…
