Level One Plumbing Code Workshop. This workshop deals with uniform interpretation of the British Columbia Building Code - Part 7 Plumbing Services. This workshop will cover basic drainage, waste and vent (DWV) systems and water pipe sizing exercises. The definitions review lays the basis for knowing what the piping is called so that it can be sized. The drainage and venting components deal with basic examples and cover wet venting and circuit venting, which are typical in many projects, large and small. Water pipe sizing covers residential and small commercial, covering sizing using tables and velocity restrictions in the Code. Common deficiencies within all of these systems are also presented.
