  2. Plumbing Licensing Study Guide

    Plumbing Licensing Study Guide


    Here, in one book, the entire plumbing trade is covered in one accessible source.  Consideration is given to cover all states’ exam requirements.  Tools and instruments are included to familiarize the licensing candidates with labor-saving devices and their correct utilization. While there are hundreds of practice exam questions, there is no guarantee that these questions and answers will appear on the actual test, or that the reader will pass the exam by simply reading this book.  The main emphasis is on getting the tradesman accustomed to testing and knowledgeable about the plumbing trade in general. While there used to be several good resources for those studying to become licensed plumbers, these are quite old and rather outdated.  This textbook/study guide will fill a void in this increasingly important trade.

  3. Plastics and Sustainable Piping Systems

    Plastics and Sustainable Piping Systems


    Plastic piping is now the preferred material in countless applications -- municipal water and sewer lines,drain/waste/vent lines, and chemical waste drainage, to mention just a few -- because plastics are durable, easy and safe to install, environmentally sound, and cost-effective. This compendium of over three dozen articles is written by a professional involved in plastic fluid handling products for over 45 years. Divided into three general areas, this unique resource promotes the use of plastics in general and plastic piping systems, in particular. The articles include listings of the major advantages of plastics plus descriptions of the many varied piping products and markets served by thermoplastic piping systems. It is certain to be an eye-opener and educational tool for the experienced and novice designing and specifying engineer, installer, end-user, code official, purchasing agent, and engineering student.
