5.0 out of 5 stars The best plumbing book around!, 28 May 2005
By A Customer
As a plumber who works in many different aspects of the mechanical services, i keep coming back to this book. This book has a limited scope in as much as it concentrates on the service of hot and cold supplies, not gas or oil. however, this means that the content is specific, informative and detailed. not only does the book cover its subject well, it also has diagrams that are spaced well and not squashed onto the page as in the treloar books.
easy to read/decifer, this book is an essential buy for any existing plumber or anyone on an nvq etc. put quite simply, i was reluctant to part with this much money for such a narrow scoped book, i'm so glad i did. i see this book as the foundation for which any career in plumbing can be built. Garret doesnt try and put things in, that would increase the appeal of the book such as gas or oil but simply writes about a subject he knows inside out, a subject that i now know inside out. an absolute gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for the working plumber, 9 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This is an excellent reference for the various regulations which apply to the plumbing trade. As legislation becomes more onerous, and the water regulations are tightened, you would be a fool to yourself not to have a copy to hand at all times. Should be a cokmpulsory item in any plumber's toolkit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Delivery, 26 April 2010
By 
Mr. R. Worthington (Abergele, Conwy) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Hot and Cold Water Supply 3e (Paperback)
The book is excellent.

The only downside to this order was the poor service provided by the Home Delivery Network [HDL]. I live down a lane off the main road shared by four other houses and apparently tried to deliver it on three occasions but failed to because 'the lane was blocked'. Given that the lane is only about 80m long and the only temporary blockage could have been the rubbish collection could the driver not have waited or walked down the lane?

I had to make a 22mile round trip to collect the book in the end, despite having given HDL my telephone number so that I could give the driver directions. They them had some difficulty in locating the package, which was slightly damaged. Fortunately, the book was not damaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and informative, 22 Nov 2010
By 
Dave (Wiltshire) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Hot and Cold Water Supply 3e (Paperback)
This book focuses on the requirements of BS6700 but also includes a wealth of information from other standards. It is an excellent and informative book. Practical and relevent to installers and specifiers not a theoretical academic work. I've been in the building services game for 25 years and I use this book as my first point of reference. A quick look through the contents and index will show just how comprehensive this is.
