  1. A proposed residence is to be designed as a bungalow in an urban setting where the water pressure in the area is at 80psi. The family who will be occupying requires the installation of T&B for the following target users: The couple (husband and wife), the children (2 boys and 1 girl), immediate family member who takes care of the kids while the couple is at work, and a household maid. The installation of plumbing materials for the above project requires specifications of pipes, valves and fittings. For a typical one-wall single unit T&B, you are required to present a Bill of Materials using uPVC pipes and fittings for the DWV system and for the water supply system.
