Learn all about your bathroom and kitchen plumbing systems in this 3 week series!

This is a 3-session class that meets on consecutive weeks (the sessions are exactly one week from the previous session at the same time, ex: Saturdays at 10:30am).

‘This course is designed for the aspiring DIYer who wants to be comfortable doing their own plumbing work outside the wall.

Day 1: We’ll cover how water flows through your home with a special emphasis on drain maintenance and diagnosing/fixing clogs. Participants will learn how modern drain systems work. We’ll cover drain pitch, internal and external venting, cleanouts and traps.

Day 2 Bathrooms: We’ll get hands on in the workshop. Participants will practice removing and installing a tank type toilet, including supply lines, and installing a vanity, sink faucet, supply lines and drain connections.

Day 3 Kitchens: Participants will practice how to install a kitchen sink, faucet and garbage disposal. We’ll also cover soldering copper pipe connections.
