Plumbers and other repairmen charge a mint these days—but with Popular Mechanics on your side, it’s possible to cut these costs dramatically by both preventing and managing pipe-related emergencies on your own. It lays out the basics, explaining what’s involved in a typical plumbing system, along with supply lines, drainage, and venting. Hundreds of line drawings and easy-to-follow instructions lead you through every step, including: dealing with frozen and split pipes; making an epoxy patch repair; fitting the bathroom with a sink, toilet or tub; fixing leaky faucets; checking the heating system for faults; putting in a wood-burning stove; and replacing damaged radiators. An illustrated glossary presents the complete plumber’s toolkit, and the skills needed to use them safely.
