Plumbing Leadwork: Joints and Pipes

Price: £3.00 (Zero Rated VAT) Delivery: £0.00

by Peter T J Rumley MA, DPhil, MA, MIFA
This Information Sheet explains the basic jointing techniques and methods of pipe fabrication used in plumbing leadwork (ie the making, fixing and maintenance of pipework for water supply and drainage, which requires skills different from those used in lead sheetwork for roofs and cladding). Materials such as cast iron, copper and plastic having replaced lead, the construction industry no longer offers training in plumbing leadwork. The skills of the plumbing leadworker remain essential, however, for the conservation of historic leadwork. Information Sheet 15 is the sister publication of Technical Pamphlet 17
