under 1000 have either had or will have existing appliance modified or a like for like (cast iron) new appliance fitted. 180 stainless steel "off the shelf" units are to be installed of two standard designs depending on main supply pipe orientation. 100 are already in - mainly to replace poor installations. The stainless units look different, but are sturdy enough. if installed properly they should be around 700mm above ground level. They should be installed with security chains on the locks. If theft occurs we can fit anti bolt cropper chains. The total project cost is around £500k and would have been a lot more if we have not used the stainless steel units. The taps ensure there is less chance of cross contamination and fewer freezings. Stop taps mean problems easier to solve without shutting down large areas.
