Plumbing Talk: Learn The Lingo

One of the things that I always feel insecure about are car repair estimates. I know NOTHING about cars. I can quote cabinets, plumbing, tile lighting specs prices off the top of my head, but I don’t know the difference between a spark plug a piston.

Let’s face it.  Unless you are an expert, you have to take the mechanic’s word for it. Your ballcock is broken. Huh? I’m going to have to go get a Spline Adaptor. (hmmm.. how much will that cost?) And the Bonnet, it’s broken. And no, it’s not the hood of an  Englishman’s car.

So, in the hopes of enlightening you, my readers, here is a reference sheet of plumbing terms. That way, next time the plumber needs to fix something, you not only know what he is talking about, but how big a deal it is to fix. Or, should something suddenly break you have anemergency – stay calm, remember you have a Plumbing Vocabulary guide!
