Plumbing Maintenance & Repair
Pipes, Fittings, and Clean-outs
Pipes can break, drains can plug, and valves can leak. When trouble arises, quick and quality repairs are crucial—the plumbing system must work properly, both for convenience and the health of the community’s residents.
Pipes are the arteries and veins of the plumbing system, carrying fresh, clean water to residents—and taking away wastewater and material. Fittings are the metal or plastic pieces that hold sections of pipe together.
In your role as a maintenance technician, you’ll need to know about the pipes behind the walls of your apartment community. In particular, you’ll need to know what can go wrong with them, and how to make a few simple repairs. This class will teach you the essential components of pipes, fittings and cleanouts and how they impact your role as a maintenance professional.
