Summary

Summary

Using an easy-to-understand approach, this book covers the fundamentals of the plumbing system from the perspective of construction managers, architects, and other managers. Written in an easy-to-understand manner, this book emphasizes the practical applications of plumbing systems. The material is presented in a systems approach to plumbing, rather than focusing the design and engineering aspects of plumbing (although some design fundamentals are presented and explained, when appropriate). This book uses the latest National Code for Plumbing--ANSI A40-1993 Standard,"Safety Requirements for Plumbing." For those who need to know how and why plumbing systems work, and how plumbing systems relate to other elements of construction.
