  • ISSN : 1021-2019



In this paper the importance and some key assumptions of fire water supply are discussed in association with the existing South African design standards. The main purpose is to provide information to assess our standards on a technical level. Emphasis is placed on the cost implications of different fire water elements. This information may be of use to designers of water supply systems and authorities responsible for fire water supply. Where possible, international standards and data on the current situation in South Africa are cited to elucidate the discussion.
