Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Create a direct link between your education/training program and the residential construction industry! Training materials are now available for many of the residential crafts based on skill standards developed by the nation's leading builders and educators. The result of a strategic partnership between the National Association of Home Builder's Home Builders Institute and Delmar, the Residential Construction Academy Series is the perfect way to teach essential workplace skills to people new to the building trades. Delmar is a part of Cengage Learning. Written in partnership with the Home Builders Institute, and endorsed by NAHB, Residential Construction Academy Plumbing provides a step-by-step approach to residential plumbing installations. Focusing on the new residential construction industry, the author thoroughly explains the process of installing residential plumbing systems by exploring topics such as tools of the trade and proper safety measures and by offering various tips to increase productivity on-the-job. Logically organized to build a foundation of knowledge, the text progresses from the installation of common fixtures to troubleshooting techniques that will aid apprentice and plumber alike. An emphasis on creative layout and the importance of understanding code variations fosters an understanding of plumbing system installation that is based on typical situations as well as unique jobsite conditions.
