Plumbing Math
Math is used in all phases of construction. Plumbers use math to read plans, calculate pipe length, lay out fixtures, and much more. Good math skills will help a plumber advance in the profession.

Mathematics is one of the most important tools you’ll ever own. It’s free, comes with a lifetime guarantee, and actually gets better the more you use it. It is also your daily companion.



Plumbing Math Terms
Click on each term to find out more:
Back
Part of the fitting that is opposite to the side with an opening or face.

Center
A point exactly halfway between two other points or surface.

Center Line
On a drawing, a line that shows the center of an object.

Center Point
Point created where the centerline of the pipe and the centerline of the fitting meet within the fitting. The center point is used to determine the correct length of a pipe.

Face
The open end of a fitting where a pipe is joined to the fitting, such as the opening of the inlet on either end.

Fitting Allowance
The distance from the end of the pipe that goes into a fitting to the center of the fitting. Also called fitting takeoff.

Remainder
The leftover amount in a division problem. For example in the problem 34/8, 8 goes into 34 four times (8 X 4=32) and 2 is left over or in other words, it is the remainder.

Schematic Drawings
Simple, single-line representations (drawings) of pipes and fittings.

Thread Makeup
The distance that pipe screws into a fitting. Also called thread engagement or thread-in.

Throat
The part of the fitting where you thread in another pipe or fitting.
