Plumbing code question.
Posted by Quality Water Associates on November 21, 2002 at 22:09:32:
With residential potable water to a very large house and using the fixture unit method to establish the flow rate, say we find 50 gpm. The building is supplied by well water and the 50 gpm can�t be met by two wells but they can supply say 40 gpm.

My question: Is there a time limit that the 50 gpm must be supplied for, such as ten minutes which I�ve been told I have to provide, per �code�. I haven�t heard what code as yet. Anyone know what the code actually says?
