General plumbing & heating with hot water

Here are some links to general information that you may find helpful for DIY plumbing and heating work.

This book has a lot of information about copper tubing. If you have dial up be warned the file is about 6.5 mb.

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


If you like copper for other things too check out their web site.

Here is a link to Colder Product Company who has a white paper out about those mysterious pipe threads. It’s only 6 pages but they want you to give your name and address before you can download it. (PIA! But it is worth reading)

How to figure heat output of a radiator? This has good information on the last few pages about that.


http://www.burnham.com/PDF/Baseray.pdf
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


And finally here is a web article about gravity hot water systems that I found interesting.

Moving this, note that the general forum is for other topics not related to coal or heating. If you're not sure where to post something just put it in the general forum and I'll move it if I feel necessary.
