    hi mate, the scenarios are a pain,,,scenario 1 their are nineteen thing to check basically everything to do with the cold water system, count them as you go along isolators,taps,toilet etc,etc....
    scenario 2 hot water check,the immersion heater has been left on and its too high,turn it down to 60 degrees again check everything to do with the hot water,
    scenariol 3 not done that yet,got as far as a soundness test and failed so got bored with it.....good luck

    hi got this disk of a mate for fun.
    check every thing that is wet plumbing, it will tell you if not relevant.
    and dont forget to leave the house as you found it water / heat on doors shut etc.

    Good day one and all, I am also struggling with the soundness testing!! do you have to check each piece of pipework which is adjoined to the isolation/service valves?! I do know after many times of being told that you must turn the boiler OFF before you play with the gate valve. Will give it another attempt when kids are tucked up in bed!
    Regards James

    no the soundness test for hot and cold water systems. (scenario 3 on the Trade 4 trade skills virtual reality cd). Ive read the guide in my book but its not the same in the VR house, you cant just go to your toolbox and grab a tool. the last problem i had to solve was two leaking taps but it wouldnt let me change the tap washers i had to replace the taps with new ones, shurely i should have had both options.

    They seem okay as scenarios to me.

    They seem to be picking up on any underlying knowledge required to answer them.

    In real life of course it often doesn't work like that.

    A Plumber usually has to think on the job, not go home and look in a book.

    Its great if you can of course and sometimes you get the opportunity to do so.

    Working for small repair companies however, where you don't even know what your next customer will want, it works differently.
    If your an employee, your boss will expect you to be able to do what he is paying you for and that means any job in Plumbing.
    That means from ships plumbing to oil refinery to tap washers.

    You would need a library to cover it all and have the time to read it.

    Your head would be so full of information you could probably be so distracted from your often dangerous surroundings you could trip, and hurt yourself.

    The key is to do your planning first and then the job, so you don't mix work with learning.

    But how do you do that in a small firm when you don't know what sort of job you will be doing in the next half hour let alone day?

    Learn as much as you can about how things should work, then you will know why they don't.

    And don't be afraid to ask questions or look in kids books for answers.
    Have a read of a Physics book, go to one of the junior school websites and learn the basics from the start.

    And don't think your too old or sophisticated to do that.

    You don't of course have to go down to the sub atomic particle level of matter to understand what your doing, although that helps, but just far enough so that you do understand.

    Also what you do sometimes find is that the same principles of Plumbing apply equally to an oil refinery as they do to your house only the pipes are usually bigger.

    Wait till you get piece of 24" Spun cast iron to play with. You can get bigger of course, but that is usually the heavy mobs job. :-)

    You will spend all day trying to work out how to move it, let alone do anything else with it. And no a nice man with a crane isn't always there.

    You have to ask "How deep is the hole, its going in?" "Is the hole properly shored up!"

    Loads of questions about none Plumbing things that are all part of Plumbing.

    Its all a good laugh. And don't forget to relax and have fun at some point. :-) :-)
