A Community Workshop

Plumbing Skills

Scottys’ Retro Workshop was initially a Workshop I built to accommodate my Hobby and to create an opportunity for Children to learn some basic Automotive Practical Skills free of charge. Also a place where Generations can interact, tackling loneliness and helping in the pass down of Artisan Skills.

To help pay for the above and by Popular demand I now provide a Basic Plumbing Skills Course for Adults’

Fancy learning some basic plumbing skills. What to do if you suddenly have a leak in your home? How to drain your system down safely ? How to solder a pipe connection ? Easier ways of joining pipework ? What to think about if you are fitting an outside tap and how to comply with the Water Byelaws ? What do valves look like ? How do you Connect a Washing Machine ? What is a Trap ? Are tap washers easy to change ?  Do all taps have tap washers ? How to freeze a pipe if you have no means of isolating it ? Starting with some basics but definitely getting you to solder a pipe joint we can cram a lot of the above into a morning session. If you want to learn more we can set another day and explore the subject further.  I have Degree Level Qualifications in Building Services, I have passed the Water Byelaws Exam, and an Unvented Systems Qualification, I also once maintained an OFTEC Oil Boiler License so you are in safe hands learning the above basics. What is a Registered GAS / Heating Engineer and why you should use them.

The cost for 4 people and the materials required for a half day of basic Plumbing Fun is £180.00

(¬£45.00 each… so even if you learn enough to fix one plumbing problem you have probably saved yourself more )
