This excellent book is great for an overall understanding of how your plumbing works, where it is, and how to do pretty much any repair, replacement, device add-on, or complete restructuring. The illustrations are quite clear. Great for a very experienced DIYer. Very good for a stubborn and mechanically inclined homeowner who has lots of tools, can read, and will eventually admit when she's out of her depth. Ooh -- I just noticed the included DVD.
I'm not a plumber, but I'm an engineer. I have 6-7 of these Stanley books. There are a lot of projects inside, most with great photographs.
The problem with this series of books is that they often give you just enough info to be dangerous.

Why do I keep buying them? Because they can really help you estimate the level of effort on a particular project, or guide you through an emergency repair.
This one has a DVD which if you think about it is really cool if "a picture is worth 1000 words" and "a video is worth 1000 pictures"
This is a great book for a DIY Homeowner. Has pretty much every standard plumbing adventure you can think of and also contains some exotic ones. Nice pictures and great references make this an awesome book! If you need to learn something about plumbing, pick up this book and you will learn a lot and save a lot of money in the long run.
heart of sky
Stanley makes the best easiest to understand how to books around. I've used this book for many projects and has the best illustrations for simplicity of project completion to follow.
Whether it's installing a new faucet, new toilet, fixing leaks, soldering copper pipes, clearing clogs, or numerous other issues, this book provides great information and great color pictures to help you learn to do plumbing on your own.
Excellent book iam electrician who run s into plumbing issue s at times wanted a book to refer too this is a good one you won't become a master plumber but it s great for saving you from calling one for small jobs
I use this book since I gave away my original plumbing how-to. The first was more "start a low level of knowledge" than this one but I thought I needed a more up-to-date technology manual. Sill miss not having my original since a lot of my plumbing still relateds to the older tech.
Great reference when needed; the question is ; you did not know that you need this ; it gives you ideas references , new perspective.If you are house owner, designer , home oriented , need space , need control of your domestics enviroments , it could be "the book"
practical and easy , make your small reference library and keep it near you.
