There is possibly no branch of construction work which has undergone within the same given time such great changes of a far reaching nature as plumbing construction. These changes look to the betterment of sanitary conditions, and are going on continually. As a consequence of all this, any work relating to plumbing con struction to be of real value to the reader must deal with modern methods and appliances, for the old-time construction called for such entirely different methods, materials, and appliances, that the trade of the younger plumber of to - day has little in common with the trade which the older school of plumbers learned in their younger days.
The practice of filling books on plumbing with instructions and historical data concerning old-time plumbing construction has no features to recommend it. And the author, believing in the truth of this statement, has avoided the employment of all such material. The ambitious plumber of to-day, if he is to keep abreast of the times in his chosen line of work, cannot afford to waste much time in gaining knowledge of an obsolete nature.
Many factors have taken part in the advancement of sanitary construction.
