A South African Plumbing Industry Breakthrough! 

SANS 10254

“Starting 2018 on a positive note”, is something all registered plumbers in South Africa could say with the release of the latest edition of SANS 10254 for the installation, maintenance, replacement and repair of fixed electric storage water heating systems. 

As plumbers we sometimes find it difficult to keep up to date with the requirements of the SANS standards and may feel that changes to the standards will cause a world of confusion and frustration in an already challenging work environment.
