A Unique Visual Guide to On-the-Job Application of the 2006 International Plumbing and International Private Sewage Disposal Codes

Illustrated Guide to the 2006 International PlumbingandSewage Codes offers a unique visual approach to interpreting and applying the full range of plumbing codes. This vital on-the-job sourcebook presents more than 200 illustrations and concise text that clarify even the most complex code requirements. Readers will find common sense and readability substituted for code complexity and legalese; code paragraphs changed to bulleted lists; code equations converted to tables; large code tables broken down into small tables; long code sentences changed into short sentences; dimensions moved from code text to drawings; and much more.

THIS EASY-TO-FOLLOW REFERENCE FEATURES:

  • A plain English text, presented in step-by-step, bulleted format for ease of understanding
  • Numerous illustrations that show how to interpret and apply difficult code information

This Essential Code-Compliance Tool Covers:

Administration * Definitions * General Regulations * Fixtures, Faucets, and Fixture Fittings * Water Heaters * Water Supply and Distribution * Sanitary Drainage * Indirect/Special Waste * Vents * Traps * Storm Drainage * Special Piping Storage Systems * Referenced Standards * Site Evaluation * Materials * Soil Absorption Systems * Pressure Distribution Systems * Tanks * Mound Systems * Cesspools * Inspections

Synopsis:

"A unique visual approach to interpreting and applying the 2006 International Plumbing and Sewage Code" While other plumbing code books are annotated guides filled with almost as much legalese as the code itself, this is the only book to use illustrations as the basis for explanation, a bulleted format for text, and real-world case studies to explain how to apply and interpret the 2006 International Plumbing and Sewage Code.
