Domestic TAPS3 Plumbing Certificates In Silchester

What are the water regulations?

The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 prevent the waste, undue consumption, misuse, contamination and erroneous measurement of the water supply. The regulations also specify the appropriate quality and standard that materials must comply with.

The Water Regulations are owned by the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). Water Suppliers are responsible for enforcing them on behalf of DEFRA. Failure to comply with these regulations could contaminate both your water supply and the public water supply network, which may result in legal action being taken against you.

Prior to connecting any property to the mains supply, we must check that your new plumbing system complies with the Water Regulations. This is done either by

Thames Water carrying out an external and internal inspection of the site, or by us receiving appropriate certification from an approved plumber/contractor.

The internal inspection will now in most cases be carried out after the water connection has been made.

The Water Regulations cover all premises supplied by the Water Supplier and it is the responsibility of the owner of the premises to ensure compliance.

Please note, failure to comply with the regulations will delay the final connection date.

Prior to Thames Water connecting your supply pipe, you must ensure that a number of steps are successfully completed. Please refer to the process flow chart on the opposite page.

We are qualified to issue TAPS3, TAPS4, TAPS5, TAPS6 certificates for you in all of London and neighbouring areas

There are currently four types of certificates:

TAPS 3

For internal work in new properties and can be only issued by an approved plumber.

TAPS 4

For internal work in existing properties that require no new connections or upgrades of supply size from Thames Water. This can only be issued by an approved plumber.

 

TAPS 5

For underground supply pipes from an outside stop valve or boundary to an inside stop valve. Either an approved plumber or underground worker can issue this.

TAPS 6

For notification work. This is issued by an approved plumber and is followed up by a TAPS 4 certificate once the work is complete.
