Electrician learning Plumbing on the fly


Hey guys,

Im a licensed electrician. I have bumbled around here before just checking out different threads. Thought I'd register and stop being a lurker.

I purchased a mid 70's home about 3 years ago, and Im constantly remodeling some part of it in my spare time. And Im always fixing something FULL-TIME on this house as well. Mostly plumbing issues, since probably the first month. Leaks, clogs, a few floods...you get the picture. I not half bad at fixing small stuff but I need to educate myself a little more with plumbing and venting drain lines the right way, cause Im in the middle of turning my garage into a MIL suite and Id really like to add a small bathroom in it. Anyways - Hello from NC.
