Plumbing Basics

The plumbing system in your home is designed to direct fresh water and wastewater to where you want it to go, without incident. You want wastewater to leave your home down a drain instead of overflow into your home and you want fresh water to come out of a spout rather than leaking somewhere within the walls.

Working with Plastic Piping

In this tutorial, you will learn how plastic piping is used, and how to measure, cut, and join plastic piping. Plastic piping comes in many varieties to address many uses. There are rigid plastic pipes, which come in Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride… CPVC… and Polyvinyl Chloride… PVC… varieties, and polybutylene… or flexible plastic pipes.

 

 

Soldering Copper Pipes

Soldering copper pipes is a basic plumbing skill that once mastered will enable you to tackle many home repair and home improvement projects - for instance, replacing copper water lines or installing a new spigot. It can be as much an art as it is a science, thus the more you get the "feel for it", the faster and easier it gets.

 

Faucet Basics

Faucets are available in an ever-increasing variety of types and styles, no matter if they are for the kitchen or bathroom. Aside from the standard chrome faucet with compression type valves, there are also faucets that use ball valves, cartridges and even ceramic discs, all available in stainless steel, brass, or colored enamel finishes.

 

Installing a Frost-Free Sillcock

If you live in a colder climate, your water pipes may be susceptible to freezing. For the most part, your plumbing is safely inside the heated living space of your house. However, a sillcock (spigot) on the outside wall of your house is exposed to the elements and can freeze during the colder winter months. Since water expands as it freezes, this situation can burst your pipes causing water damage to your house.

 

How to Repair a Valve

Faucets are sold in many different makes and models, but the common ones fall into just a few types. You'll find only two basic kinds of faucets; washer-type (or compression) faucets and washerless faucets.
