About this item
Every homeowner sooner or later will need to repair or replace a plumbing fixture or will want to upgrade a plumbing feature. From faucet repair to installing plumbing for a new bathroom, you can save plenty of money by doing the plumbing yourself. With today's materials and installation methods, almost any project is within the reach of a motivated do-it-yourselfer with a modest set of tools and some basic skills.
After an introductory chapter on understanding the plumbing system, tools, and materials, Plumbing presents a section on repairs and replacements that can be done with a modest set of tools and that require no running of supply or DWV pipes. Later chapters explain how to work with plumbing pipe and how to tackle some more complex repairs and installations. Also included is a chapter on outdoor plumbing.
