In this 2 day course you will learn how to carry out small plumbing installations yourself! You will also learn about the different water systems in your house and how to isolate your water supply so you can work on it safely.
Day 1 will cover the different types of pipes made from copper and plastic, compression and push fittings, and when to use them. You'll also learn about different types of waste pipes and how to cut and join them - and which are the right tools for the job.
Day 2 will start off by you fixing a leak in a pipe with the skills learnt on Day 1. You will then learn how to install a water supply and a waste water pipe to an new area of the house / room if you want to add / move a washing machine for example. You'l be able to transfer what you have learnt to many different plumbing situations.
This course deals with small plumbing installations. It’s an extension of our very successful 5 Day DIY Intensive - Course for Women, although no previous knowledge is required to take part in the Plumbing Intensive.This is what some of our most recent participants have said about the DIY course : “Every woman should know this stuff!”. “A big thank you! One of the best courses I have ever taken, I learned so much”. The Plumbing Intensive is taught by Naomi Hills, who is a plumber with over 20 years experience, together with Astrid Arnold.
Please wear sturdy shoes. Bring a face mask, a note book and a packed lunch including a water bottle or flask as we won't be able to tea and biscuits at the moment.
