This is superior to the "HomeSkills: Plumbing" book. It has double the pages and almost word-for-word and picture-for-picture what the Homeskills book contains, with sometimes more tips or pictures. They share the same publisher, but Black and Decker’s covers more fixtures like water heaters, water filters, and plumbing projects requiring some construction. It’s also cheaper ($16.37 vs $22.20 on Amazon).

The pictures and illustrations are well done and show inside many fixtures and appliances.

Even if you don't plan to do plumbing yourself, this book will demystify how it works so you can keep better track of what is needed when you call in a plumber. Very handy guide to have around the house.

(I received this book for free through a Goodreads giveaway.)

Confession: I didn't have high expectations for this book, AND I have no particular interest in plumbing. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised, and it impressed me enough that I would gladly buy other Black & Decker guides.

This full-color, full-bleed guide covers pretty much any plumbing project you could expect to undertake in your home. Most of it is more advanced than I would feel comfortable attempting, but with some

The Black and Decker series is pretty good so far.

Good beginner DIY material; leaves you feeling comfortable making tackling some household plumbing repairs, and a good understanding of the home plumbing system.
