Do it Yourself with Copper: New Smart Phone & Tablet App Provides Easy Access to Important Information on the Job

By Andy Kireta Jr., Copper Development Association Vice President, Market Development

Plumbers, HVAC technicians and contractors – the CDA has a new copper app that will give you valuable information about copper tube, piping and fitting. You’ll have access to different copper joining methods and applications. And best of all, the information will be at your fingertips out in the field.

We’ve converted our popular Copper Tube Handbook into an app that can be downloaded directly onto an iPad or iPhone. By searching for Copper Tube Handbook in the Apple App store, you can now have this 60+ page manual readily available on your mobile device. The app is free for the first 10,000 users.

If you work with copper tube and piping systems and need instant access to technical specifications, data or installation instructions – this is the app for you. You can also view short, educational how-to videos from the Do It Proper with Copper Series, produced by the CDA. These videos demonstrate copper joining techniques and can help you distinguish the different sizes and designations for copper tube, pipe and fittings.

For many years, we’ve been proud to be the go-to source for apprentices, plumbers and contractors. We’ve noted that the majority of people prefer to download Copper Tube Handbook rather than request a print version. Providing an app for our tech-friendly world is the next best step.

We’re pleased that our tablet version will allow you to view the handbook pages like a book or jump quickly to different sections of the manual, including the how-to videos. You also can access the Table of Contents from a drop-down toolbar. The iPhone provides similar navigational tools.

So take a look. The Copper Tube Handbook App is free to download for the first 10,000 customers in the U.S. and Canada, and will be sold at a cost of 99 cents after that. The app is now available through the Apple App Store and will be available for Android users through Android Google Play later this summer.
