When it comes to plumbing, there's a number of technical issues that we'll start to talk about in this exam, but mostly will show up in the next exam, but it's useful to talk a little bit about it, so we'll go through some of those in a minute, but there's also a lot of design issues that are related directly to plumbing, and that's really gonna be the main focus on this exam, and thinking about how the plumbing system is impacted by the design, and how the design is impacted by the plumbing system. A couple things first to mention: when we talk about plumbing, we're talking about three different systems that intertwine with each other. One of 'em is the supply pipes, so the hot and cold water that come around all over the building to get to all the fixtures that you wanna have water coming out of.
