Introduction PLUMBINGP Is the art and technique of installing pipes,L fixtures & other apparatuses in buildings & for bringing the supply, liquids, substancesU &/or ingredients & removing them;M from the Latin plumbum for lead as pipesB were once made from lead.I refers to a system of pipes and fixtures installed in a building for the distributionN of potable water and the removal ofG waterborne wastes.
Introduction - history PRACTICE OF PLUMBING IN THE PHILIPPINESP Birth of plumbing profession traced back to the 17th centuryL as Spaniards established Walled City known as Intramuros as a model community.U In 1902, the PLUMBING TRADE was duly recognized by the government.M Master Plumber John F. Hass became the 1st Chief of Division of Plumbing Construction and Construction. A plumbing codeB based on the Plumbing Code of the US was incorporated into the Building Code for the City of Manila.I In 1935 the National Master Plumbers Association of theN Philippines (NAMPAP) was organized and registered with the SEC.G
Introduction - history PRACTICE OF PLUMBING IN THE PHILIPPINESP City Ordinance 2411 known as “The Plumbing Code for the City of Manila” was enacted with the consultation ofL NAMPAPU In 1954, the 3rd Congress of the Republic of the Philippines approved after the third reading House Bill No. 962. ThisM became Republic Act No. 1378. On June 28, 1955, R.A. 1378 known as the “Plumbing Code ofB the Philippines was signed by President Ramon Magsaysay.I In December 21, 1999 pursuant t Section 4 of R.A. 1378, Joseph Ejercito Estrada approved the Revised PlumbingN Code of 1999.G
