4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book....but could use some additions
This is an excellent reference book for any DIYer. The amount of shots they have managed to capture is fantastic, so much that i have purchased almost the entire Black and Decker Series of home improvement books. They explain the entire plumbing system in detail....provided you are not hooked up to a water well. I recently had some issues with my well system, and went...

2.0 out of 5 stars From the book's own advice: Better hire a plumber!?

"Install a drain pipe and branch line and then trim the drain pipe flush with the floor.
IF YOU ARE NOT EXPERIENCED WITH PLUMBING, HIRE A PLUMBER TO INSTALL THE NEW DRAIN LINE"

Obviously I will not learn that from "The Complete Guide to Plumbing".

Honestly the book is not that bad, but quite overrated. Nice pictures but too much focus on the easiest topics.

This is an excellent reference book for any DIYer. The amount of shots they have managed to capture is fantastic, so much that i have purchased almost the entire Black and Decker Series of home improvement books. They explain the entire plumbing system in detail....provided you are not hooked up to a water well. I recently had some issues with my well system, and went to turn to my handy B&D reference book only to find out they do not cover this. If it were to to include this, it would definitely be a 5 star rated book.

I haven't had a chance to use this book as yet but skimming through it, I can see that it will be useful in the future. Although i know a lot about plumbing, it is always nice to have a referance book to see if there is a better way to do the job. I am happy with my purchase.

Great book for a beginner. Clear pictures, and the DVD is helpful. Make me more confident attacking small projects, and explains how water travels through out the house, including drains.
I recommend this book for the Handyman.

J'ai acheté ce livre afin de me renseigner sur la façon de refaire une partie de ma plomberie. Le livre est très détaillé et bien fait. Les explications sont claires et précise.

J'aurais aimer l'avoir en français par contre.
