Library Journal
Popular Mechanics is one of the most respected names among do-it-yourselfers; its "Home How-To" series lives up to that reputation by offering a variety of information about common household repairs combined with clear, concise illustrations. In this volume, readers are introduced to the home's plumbing system and shown how to complete many repairs, including installing toilets, replacing sinks, and maintaining septic systems. The section on heating covers fireplace maintenance, flue-liner installation, and central heating systems of all types. Other titles in this series include Weatherproofing & Insulation, Home Repairs & Improvements, and Outdoors & Gardens. The material in this title was originally published in Popular Mechanics Home How-To (Hearst, 1989), but even libraries that currently own that title may want to consider purchasing this short, reasonably priced guide to many of the most common household projects. Recommended. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
