UK Building Codes : outdoor tap requirement

Postby fasop » Sun Oct 04, 2020 10:38 pm

An American doomsday prepper site recommended that survivors carry an outdoor tap key as building regulations for the last thirty years require an outdoor tap be fitted.

Is this true of UK regulations also, and what kind of outdoor tap is it please?

Hi fasop
There are no regulations in the U.K. regarding security of outside taps, they are generally just a fixed T handle.

Thank you for the info, I'm just wondering if it is mandatory for taps to be made available ?
