The Copper Development Association has produced a series of how-to videos for anyone working with copper on architectural and plumbing projects.

The “Do It Proper with Copper” video series was designed to illustrate proper techniques for joining and using the metal in both architectural and piping applications. This includes such traditional techniques as soldering, as well as new push and press-connect fittings, recently introduced for plumbing systems.

With the help of CDA project managers Larry Peters and Harold Moret, CDA has created five videos aimed at the do-it-yourselfer or the experienced installer. According to the CDA, the methods reviewed are appropriate for both new construction and remodeling projects.

“We are very excited about this educational video series,” said Andy Kireta Jr., vice president of building and construction for CDA. “The explanation and demonstration of various techniques and applications are useful for anyone who is working with copper piping or copper roofing, flashing or other architectural systems, and is looking for some guidance on their next project. “

The video series is available for free download on the CDA Web site at www.copper.org/applications/doityourself/homepage.html.
