Plumbing terminology
Posted by Kelley Cartwright on March 10, 2002 at 16:24:47:
I'm going to have a new bathroom built, and have been looking at toilets, tubs, lavatories, etc. I constantly come across terms I don't understand (I'm a real novice). Do you know where I can find (on the Web, hopefully) definitions of the terms used? For example, what does "rough-in" mean with respect to toilets? What are the various kinds of toilet valves? What are the various options for whirlpool tubs? etc.

Many thanks.
