What are the design requirements for hose bibbs and hose stations?
The basic design requirements are as follows:
- Appropriate backflow prevention devices (for example vacuum breakers) must be installed at all hose bibbs.
- Signage must be installed at all hose bibbs. Signs for non-potable water hose bibbs should state "Caution: Non-potable Water, Do Not Drink" and display the international 'do not drink' symbol. Signs for reclaimed water hose bibbs should state "Caution: Reclaimed Water, Do Not Drink" and display the international 'do not drink' symbol.
- Hoses and hose racks must be installed at all hose bibbs. This requirement may be waived for unmanned facilities which do not routinely require clean-up or maintenance using hoses.
