Session 2 Practical 1. Job: 64 Students are required to fit off a storage tank of not less than 1000 litres in capacity. The inlet connection is a 100mm x 50mm zinc down pipe offset from a roof catchment area to leaf shedding rain head, then fit a first flush diverter & over flow in 90mm PVC to an approved storm water point of discharge.

2. Job: 65 Students install a domestic roof irrigation system in 25mm pipe, from the pump to the spouting and install and commission a centrifugal pump (25mm suction and 25mm delivery) for its operation.
