About This Item

Bridgport, Connecticut: Bridgeport Brass Company, 1936. Octavo, paperbound (stiff, stapled, blue wrappers), 48 pp. Good+, with rubbing to covers. From Foreword: The tables and data on Water Pipe Sizes have been reprinted several times and have been favorably received by architects and engineers. We have been most fortunate in receiving friendly, constructive criticisms and have incorporated most of the suggestions in this present revised issue. We are calling your particular attention to the new tables and data -- Flow of Water in Copper Water Tube -- never before published. These tables should prove very valuable in view of the ever increasing popularity of Copper Water Tube for general plumbing, heating, fuel oil and underground service. It is evident that the selection of pipe sizes is still somewhat of an art, because engineers differ in points of view and methods of attacking the problem. It is believed, however, that the booklet as originally presented by Mr. Timmis is sound in theory and practice. In order to make this booklet still more useful and complete, we have included technical information on Bridgport Plumrite Brass and Copper Pipe, Copper Water Tube, and Plumbers’ Brass Goods.
