        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…

            The designing is very difficult process for 3 to 4 storey building
            and shops. But the idea of ring mains design is useful for this
            purpose. smith462013-05-27 16:55:55
