This is a download list of common plumbing and masonry tools and components, in English, Spanish and pictures. It includes use tips (how to make good joints in PVC and galvanized, for example), and doubles as a shopping list for hardware store runs, which was the use for which it was originally developed.

It is in both PDF and editable MS-Word formats. A great use for a list like this (even if you don't need the Spanish) is having a consciously limited set of plumbing sizes and materials to deal with. For example, in Maruata, I'm steering us towards use of 1/2", 1" and 2" sizes, and carefully avoiding 3/4", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" sizes. This greatly reduces the amount of inventory we need to keep on hand, and increases the likelihood that we'll have the right part amongst a smaller store of stuff.
