Installation Tips, originally produced by the UK Copper Board, is now the main technical document of the Copper Initiative. Installation Tips is a very popular free reference book for plumbers, contains technical advice and tips for the best installation of copper tube and fittings. Printed copies are no longer available but they are available as individual pdfs, see below.
Thousands of copies have already been distributed to students and installers. Positive feedback has been received, especially from students who are using it as a learning aid for their training. Bending copper tubes, planning and positioning pipework, pipe sizing and insulation are just a few of the topics covered in the reference book, distributed to members of the Copper Club.
Copper Initiative plans to regularly extend its Installation Tips series with new articles written by Brian Curry, Director of Learn Plumbing Ltd.
The Installation Tips are available on the CD - Copper Pipework Compendium which can be obtained if you join the Copper Club.
