Fresher and more complete than ever, this edition includes new material and revised information and is completely current with the 2006 Universal Plumbing Code.

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.
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.
