Previously read thread on DFU to GPM.

Previously read thread on DFU to GPM.

I tried to access the thread and continue commenting on the topic of converting drainage fixture units to GPM. I know there was a lot of confusion and I think I may have found something to help clear the fog. Below is a link to specs for water, sanitary sewer, and storm drainage infrastructures.

This helped me. Hope it helps someone else, too.


RE: Previously read thread on DFU to GPM.

This link is good, but only applicable for sizing grease interceptors - which is a lot different from sizing water, normal sanitary, or storm infrastructers.

How would you use this to determine the sanitary load (or even the water requirements) for a water closet or for a roof that is 20,000 sf?
