Introduction to Plumbing Pipes and Fixtures is a vocational course designed for anyone wanting to learn more about plumbing. This course is the third in the series of plumbing courses. While the first two introduced the learner to the trade and plumbing tools and drawings, this course goes a step further.
For a building to be considered habitable, it has to be connected to the main water and gas supply systems, and have appropriate provisions for handling waste water. The installation of long-lasting plumbing pipes ensures that these basic requirements are met.
In this online course, various materials such as plastic, copper, cast iron, carbon steel, and CSST that are used to make pipes and fixtures are discussed. Besides this, the course covers the terms associated with plumbing pipes, the differences between fittings and valves, the tests carried out on plumbing and gas pipes to ensure they are leak-proof, and the basic principles of sanitation and safety.
