Planning Drain, Waste & Vent Systems by Howard C. Massey

This practical guide to planning and designing drainage, waste and vent systems will help you prepare plumbing plans for just about any project youre likely to handle: residential, commercial, private sewage disposal systems, mobile home parks -- even public toilet room layouts for the physically handicapped.

It covers the entire subject, from basic plumbing principles to the final drawings. Emphasis is on designing systems that meet requirements for any of the popular plumbing codes.

Everyone who plans or installs plumbing systems in communities where plumbing codes are enforced should have this practical manual.

Illustrated with hundreds of diagrams, sketches and schematics, this is your best guide to the intricacies of drainage, waste and vent systems.
