Acknowledgements, This practice aptitude assessment would not have been possible without the support of. the State Government Group Training Australia SA Inc and the support and. expertise of the many people listed below I would especially like to thank Jerry. Nowak for the tireless amount of work and effort he has put into the maths component. of this project I under estimated the size of the task however Jerry was so keen to see. the project through he put in countless hours over and above what he was required to. give his supreme dedication and his great passion enabled me to produce a much. needed resource for students contemplating a career in the trades. I am sure that over the years many thousands of students will benefit from Jerry s. dedication to the project, Another special mention must go to Jane Harvey Jane was the person who initially. planted the seed in respect of developing an aid to assist students prepare themselves. for interviews and assessments in the trade areas Jane has been there during the. planning and programming stages to assisting with the coordination of the many. other people who have assisted in some form in the development of this resource to. grouping the maths examples under appropriate headings and preparing the answers. Jane has fought with me every inch of the way through thick and thin at times to. produce a quality product which we hope will fill a vast void that has been identified. in this sector of the VET Career education pathway of students.

Comprehension a,Installing a bath, To install a bath a knowledge of all relevant by laws and approved fixing methods is. The bath may be placed into position at the rough stage when the building is at the. frame stage or may be left out until the floor ceiling and walls have been clad The. bath is less likely to be damaged when installed after other trades have completed. their work, If installed at the rough stage other tradesmen must take care not to damage the.
bath while under construction It would be your responsibility to see that it was. adequately protected, Plumbers often have to install a bath in an existing home This is a much more. difficult task than in a building under construction because. Pipes need to be installed behind existing wall cladding. The baths flashing and support rim must be in behind the wall cladding this. may require extensive work on the wall, Usually the builder is responsible for levelling flashing and securing the bath but you. must check prior to commencing further work that these are correct The following. steps must be followed,Secure the bath, Allow adequate clearance for flashing to ensure a watertight installation. Level the bath, The builder is responsible for the levelling provision of flashing and securing the. bath but the plumber must ensure that all are checked prior to commencing any. further work in the bath, With this in mind a plumber must check the following before commencing the.

The tank must be connected to at least one toilet laundry cold water outlets or. a hot water supply, It must include automatic switching between tank and mains water mosquito. control and backflow prevention devices, A one kilolitre tank attached to a relatively small house with average water use by. family in Adelaide will capture 19 kilolitres a year. There are two exemptions to the law, A rainwater tank will not be required in the council areas of Roxby Downs and. Cooper Pedy which have low and highly variable rainfall that would provide. limited water savings, A tank will not be a requirement for homes with a dual supply system plumbed.
into the house for example systems using recycled effluent for toilet flushing. There are about 440 000 existing dwellings in Adelaide and with only 6 000 10 000. new dwellings built in South Australia each year Adelaide could run out of water long. before existing homes have rain water tanks plumbed into their laundries and toilets.
