Pressure! When it comes to water, too much pressure in a building's plumbing system can be detrimental – to pipes, fixtures, and appliances, as well as to efforts to minimize water consumption. Water Pressure Regulation in Building Design covers code requirements for water pressure, and the plumbing components used to reduce and regulate water pressure before entering a building's plumbing system. (Course includes a downloadable PDF study guide.)

“As an Architect, it is important to understand the pressure needed to deliver the water supply, the pluming fitting described in the course well very clear, and the course drove us to understand the purpose of using them. This course explained the purpose for some pluming fittings in the supply water system, and it explain how we can use other fitting to save water and save plumbing fixtures like using water hammer arrestors.” - Anwar, 12/21/2014
