Overview

You never know what you'll encounter during a remodel, so you have to be prepared to work around problems when they inevitably arise. In Remodel Plumbing, third-generation master plumber Rex Cauldwell provides real-world problems and solutions that you can use to figure out problems on your own jobs.

This book covers the full range of pipe types you'll likely encounter on a remodel job, including steel, copper, PB, CPVC, and PEX. You won't just learn how to install them, but how to tie them into existing systems. This complete guide explains:

  • The water supply system
  • Tapping into supply lines
  • Adding/running drains and vents
  • Remodeling kitchens and baths
  • Installing a dishwasher
  • Plumbing in an icemaker
  • Converting a tub-only faucet to a tub/shower
  • Installing a toilet in a basement

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Plumbing is a complex and vital system in any home, and mistakes can be costly. With this in mind, master plumber Cauldwell (Safe Home Wiring Projects) addresses all aspects of home plumbing, focusing on safety and code compliance throughout. The intense depth of coverage spans from piping materials to fixtures. Well drilling and maintenance chapters make this book particularly valuable, especially to rural areas. Cauldwell's wry comments (on, e.g., the narrow sizes of toilet seats and awkward past plumbing mistakes) give the text flavor. The material and its organization are superior. Way more than needed for casual projects, but for a complete understanding of all plumbing systems, this book is invaluable; highly recommended for all collections.
