DIY Plumbing Skills for Women

This ‘2-Day Plumbing Intensive – Course for Women’ is a great addition to our DIY Courses.

This course is:

  • Demystifying: learn the basics so you can identify and tackle Plumbing Jobs in your home without having to wait for someone else to sort it out!
  • Empowering: learn the language of plumbing and apply the right solutions to a plumbing situation
  • Hands-on: learn to install a water supply and waste, replace an old tap – and lots besides – under supervision on the course

“I now feel confident to get out there and tackle the jobs I have been putting off for ages!”

“This course exceeded my expectations.”


Here’s what you’ll learn:

In this 2-day course you will learn how to carry out small plumbing installations yourself! You will also learn about the different water systems in your house and how to isolate your water supply so you can work on it safely.

This course deals with small plumbing installations. It’s a great addition to our DIY Plumbing and Electrics Course, no previous knowledge is required to take part in the Plumbing Intensive.

Day 1 will cover the different types of pipes made from copper and plastic, compression and push fittings, and when to use them. You’ll also learn about different types of waste pipes and how to cut and join them – and which are the right tools for the job.

Day 2 will start off by you fixing a leak in a pipe with the skills learnt on Day 1. You will then learn how to install a water supply and a waste water pipe to an new area of the house / room if you want to add / move a washing machine for example. You’l be able to transfer what you have learnt to many different plumbing situations.

“There’s a lot more that I now feel able to have a go at than I would have ever expected. Thank you so much for this.”

“It has taken the mystery out of Plumbing – all in a friendly, enjoyable environment. 5 stars – excellent”
