It doesn't tell you how to install central heating, and should only be seen as a basic guide to the world of plumbing. If you are looking to save yourself a few quid on the odd-jobs around the house, maybe this is your book. However, if you want to tackle a bigger project, look at other sources of information.
As a reviewer of the previous version said Wickes leaflets are far more use to help you install central heating and you can download them now as well.
I always stayed well clear of water in the home but since buying the book i've drained my Central Heating system, removed and replaced radiators, used capillary & compression fittings etc.
The book offers clear pictures / diagrams and explains each procedure well.
It isn't full of boring crap that you already know or don't need to know. It just gives you the basic " this goes here and that goes there ". If you've got a few plumbing tools and half a brain your laughing. It's the best 7 quid I've spent in ages.
