Water Calculations – Internal Portable Water Usage
Under current Building Regulations (Approved Doc G), all new dwellings are required to demonstrate a minimum level of water efficiency and produce a water calculation for Building Control handover.
Housebuilders can illustrate compliance through two routes:
either using white goods and sanitary ware which meet individual maximum water usage targets;
or via the calculation method which enables housebuilders to optimise water usage more efficiently as preferred across their appliances.
Local Planning Authorities can also request a higher level of water efficiency which can be demonstrated in the same manner.

- Washing machines
- Water Softeners
- Greywater recycling
- Rainwater recycling
- An allowance for external water use
- Flow rates
