Stop drips and plumb properly
on 17 October 2012
I've been DIY plumbing for over 40 years and although I have the standard DIY manuals - and they are very good - all the same this goes into the sort of detail you need to fix those annoying and worrying plumbing problems.
True it won't make you into a qualified and experienced plumber, but it does give confidence both to do work yourself or explain to a professional. For example; how to get the syphon and control gear out from a close-coupled toilet without breaking anything.
It is a Haynes manual so it lives up to expectation for completeness and very well illustrated throughout with clear colour photos. Some are from real plumbing jobs so you can see what it is you're dealing with.
If you only have one plumbing book for home use this would be it. Thoroughly recommended and with nice touches of humour to alleviate stress.
