In most of these the contaminant has been microbial in origin. If the internal components of machines are not readily cleaned, the powdered ingredients may remain lodged in crevices for some time and become a centre for microbial action. The resulting odour may taint the drinks. Materials used in vending machines are, therefore, being evaluated against approved specifications. A machine may also become contaminated if unsuitable tubing is used to connect it to the water supply. An example quoted was the growth of yeasts in a short length of clear, plasticized PVC tubing not supplied with the machine but used by the company fitting out the restaurant where the machine was located.

An evaluation of the problems involved in meeting the higher standard has been made by Hayes et al. (1997). The microbiological aspects of water quality and health have been reviewed (Dadswell 1990), drawing on an extensive examination of waterborne diseases in the UK between 1937 and 1986 (Galbraith et al. 1987). The year 1937 was of particular significance, involving a notable typhoid outbreak in Croydon. The reviews record 34 outbreaks of several different kinds in that period, of which 21 were due to public water supplies; 11 of the latter were due to contamination at source, 10 to contamination within the water distribution system.

The supply should be reliable both in the short and long term, and thus it should be possible readily to maintain the system in good order. Appearance is important in relation to fittings and fixtures Ð a matter of design Ð and in the system generally, a need met by the proper integration of pipework and structure. Some of these requirements and ways of meeting them are dealt with in more detail elsewhere in this book. Thus chapter 1 reviews water usage in buildings and the estimation of a design load and storage requirements, chapter 8 sets out the background to the hydraulic formulae for pipe sizing, and chapter 10 deals with noise and its control.
