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