direction occur. Thrust restraints are generally located where fittings such as plugs, caps, valves, tees, bends, or reducers sit (2008). The gridiron piping layout is designed to ensure domestic, municipal, commercial and industrial water is available with minimal delays or outages. A gridiron system or looped pattern system feds water from its pumping station into the main arterial line, which is looped or connected to multiple interconnected lines, which may be closed off by isolation valves allowing water to reach customers despite a broken pipe. The distribution system has a separate system that fire hydrants use for municipal water. An individual well called a “Fire Well” is connected to a pump room, which consists of the main pipe, which ensures the
water within the grid is pressurized around 7 to 10bar, according to NFPA (2019). Within any water distribution system, one-way check valves are used to prevent backflow within the pipelines. These are designed to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution that may be caused by the backflow of water as it moves within a house’s pipes feeding the dishwasher, sinks, showers, etc. In the end, the water distribution’s storage system includes storage tanks and reservoirs, pumps, pipes, valves, meters, and hydrants Thrust Restraint Design for Buried Piping.
