"Home Plumbing" is a highly informative and user-friendly book, which provides clear and concise advice on everything the homeowner needs to know about household plumbing. Working through the basics of plumbing structures, the reader is reminded of the importance of thorough planning and safety, given no-nonsense advice on installing, maintaining and replacing internal and external plumbing systems, and offered practical guidance on dealing with professionals for the more specialised tasks. Covering everything from fixing a leak to installing a shower unit and underfloor heating, the book finally works through a range of potential emergency situations and the particulars of dealing with them. This book will be an indispensable guide, both for those people who aim to do some of the work themselves, as well as those employing professionals in and around their home.
