Default Fitting Take Off Help

Hello I'm looking for a book or chart which has fitting take off. We do a lot off DVW piping and I would like to learn the take off so I can become more efficient. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Reffer to your code book. How many fixture units are you picking up on the branch or/ also what fixtures are you picking up ? More then 2 water closets its gunna be 4" pipe minimun or no water closets but less then 27 f.u then it can be 3.
If you dont know this then you should be working with a jman who will instruct you. Hopfully your signed up an going to school also

I believe most manufactures have such charts on their websites. Try and look up the fitting brand you guys use and then you should be able to find it

All our stack piping is 4 inch, the most fixtures a branch picks up is 4, lav, shower/tub, laundry and or floor drain for furnace. I work with a Jman at all times, but I run pipe on my own. I'm trying to find the Charlote Pipe book online but have been unsuccessful. The shop I work for is not local 130, so I do not go to school. I'll have to pay to go to school 3 year as I'll need the prep work for the exam.

Illinois books don't have the take of measurements.

They list DFU & WSF.

Thank you for the help. I've downloaded the Charlotte Pipe app, I plan on making flash cards out off all the com mlm on fittings and trying to memorable them so I can become more effective when running pipe. Also thank you for the info. on drawing I'll read it so I can start getting familiar with the symbols, so when I go to school I can be familiar with it some what.

When I worked in commercial new construction, all of us journeymen had the Charlotte books with us in our toolboxes. {1} book was PVC and the other book was cast iron.


If you contact Charlotte, maybe they still make those little books. Although with smartphones and all, a lot of information is now on-line instead of print.
