Code book:blink:

You served an apprenticeship and can't size vents:blink:

I'm not trying to bust balls. Just being realistic.

And as always have a wonderful day:thumbup:

Table 7.3 and table 7.5 but you should know the entire section of the UPC code, learn it, know it, not sure your test is open book or not, when I took it here in Oregon it was a non open book.

Good Luck on your test.

The funniest joke of all is being close to turning out and not being able to size vents. That's funny right thar, I don't care who you are.

In school we had a 3 story blank side view of a building. Teach walked by with a pencil and drew fixtures here the and everywhere on all 3 floors. Then he would say "Draw it you got 10 minutes". For practice just do that randomly placing fixtures on each level.


Other than that I got nothin.

Sincerely,
ILPLumber

This is no practice forum, we are all plumbers on here, what makes you qualified to even take the test?

Tony let me ask you this, your from Idaho right, so it says in your profile, do you know how to size waste and vents there? Idaho uses upc, and it won't be that much more different then in Washington.

Isometric sizing?

You size a drawing by notations, you don't draw the pipes to scale.

Your code book has a table that specifies vent sizes for DFU's, that is what you need to know, it has nothing whatsoever to do with drawing.

I'm almost convinced the member is not a plumber at all, says the code book is a joke, is from Idaho and says going for the test in Washington, come on tony give us an intro.

Please tell me your a plumber, better yet tell us all who you are.

Why bother to size em at all? Just slap an AAV on and be done with it:thumbsup:
You mean like this? I found a website that shows you how to plumb an entire building using studor vents!:eek:LOL
I guess you're right, no need to size anything anymore! Make sure you pass this info on to your class.:whistling2:

Tony, if you can't figure out the sizing for the DWV section, which is one third of the exam score, I really hope you dig in to the water sizing section too, it is also about a third of your grade. Where are you taking the test?
Yakima or Spokane? Have you already submitted your application fees for the testing facility??
If you have not paid these fees yet, you will not be taking the test, that said, get some building drawings and start working them up. Same goes for sizing a commercial building. Good luck!!
