Illustrated Plumbing Books & Publications

There are many good books which explain in great detail the particulars of plumbing drain and vent systems. After reading or reviewing some of the books, try to visit a house or large project under construction before the drywall or plaster is installed. Look at the drainage and vent system.

Pick out a fixture in the basement or first floor area. Note where the vent pipe begins. Follow that vent pipe until you see it interconnect with other vent pipes or until it exits the roof. You will quickly determine that in a standard house, there is almost as much vent piping as there is drainage piping!

If you have other questions, feel free to write to me as well.
