4.0 out of 5 stars A helpful guide through the maze of alternative water supplies, 20 July 2006
This review is from: The Water Book: Find it, move it, store it, clean it... use it (Paperback)
This book is a clearly written discussion of the decision making process that you will go through if you want to install a private water supply. The author is an environmentalist, so makes it clear what the green and less green options are. She talks about things like springs and wells and how to clean water with filters and other treatment systems. I was surprised to find that many things that seem like a good idea aren't actually that environmentally friendly when it comes down to it.

There's a whole chapter on garden watering, which I found really helpful as we've got a hosepipe ban on and the garden is suffering. Some of the ideas are more for long term planning (next years hosepipe ban?), but there were plenty of tips for things I can do this year as well.

There are lots of books on more global water issues, which this book stays clear of. It's a book for people who want to make a practical difference at home, in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential reading, 2 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Water Book: Find it, move it, store it, clean it... use it (Paperback)
This book is the definitive guide to anyone with a dilemma about water. It should be a school textbook, it has been particularly useful as a guide to managing our water supply and becoming confident in how we approach this. I recommend this book to everyone. Clearly written and accessible to all.
