Main description

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.
