On November 14 at 10 a.m. CST, Michael Danielson, CPD, GPD, and Donald Taylor, CPD, GPD, will lead a short course on basic plumbing calculations such as the Spitzglass, Weymouth, and Manning formulas, fixture outlet flow, hot and cold water mixing, and more. The class awards 0.15 CEUs and is limited to 25 people, and registration is open at .
During this course, the instructors will review how and where to use these calculations during plumbing design and work through examples of each system discussed. The systems will include sump pumps, natural gas, storm drainage, domestic water booster pumps, hot and cold water mixing, and stacks.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to:
- Navigate the basic algebra needed to work through the design of plumbing systems.
- Better understand how to manipulate these basic algebra formulas to help your design be the most efficient and cost-effective system possible.
