Disappointing. Dated and too basic.
on 8 May 2002
I am completely replacing the plumbing system in my house, installing new bathrooms, showers and hot and cold water tanks. I bought this book as my guide. I was disappointed to find sections stating that a professional plumber should undertake certain tasks e.g. installing more than the most basic shower systems.
Great for the real basics, repairing leaks, running pipes etc. but the overview of how plumbing systems should be set up is a simple description of what you may find, not a comprehensive explanation of how to understand, plan and install the most effective plumbing systems.
