Overview

Everything you need to know about plumbing. Everything.

Fresher and more complete than ever, this edition includes new material and revised information and is completely current with the 2006 Universal Plumbing Code. From basic repairs to advanced renovations, this is the only plumbing reference book a homeowner needs. And now, for the first time, Black & Decker The Complete Guide to Plumbing includes a comprehensive section on working with gas pipe. No other big book of plumbing for DIYers covers this important subject.

Also new to this 4th edition is expansive coverage of PEX (cross-linked polyethylene), the bendable supply tubing that's taking over a major portion of the DIY market. And with the current popularity of outdoor kitchens, we've expanded our coverage of outdoor plumbing as well. Now, we'll show you every step of the process to supply and drain an outdoor sink.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Every collection needs good, basic books on home plumbing. This new edition of a standard title covers modern materials and codes and offers a new section on gas pipes but otherwise contains the same text and same illustrations as previous editions. In addition, the book lacks an overview of municipal water systems. Though it covers familiar territory, it does so quite well. The illustrations are clear and nicely placed, and the text as a whole compares favorably with other plumbing guides, such as Merle Henkenius's The Ultimate Guide to Plumbing. However, if you have the 2005 edition, keep it and don't buy the new edition-there's not enough to justify purchase. Recommended where needed. (Appendix on codes and index not seen.)

    Great if you need to do at home plumbing fixes

    I bought this book because I wanted to install a disposer on a sink that never had one. The illustrations showed all of the possible connections so I was able to figure out which one applied to me. The descriptions for this particular installation were not in a single section, I found what I needed and installed the disposer with no problems and more important no leaks.

    Plumbing guide has outstanding pictures to show you "how to do it".

    The exceptional photography makes this plumbing guide very helpful. My only (minor) complaint is that it is sometimes difficult to find the desired topic in the index. Valuable for novice to intermediate skill level. Excellent overall. Built my confidence to tackle some of the plumbing projects around the house.
