After demystifing the workings of the water supply system, a master plumber provides step-by-step instructions for kitchen, bathroom, and utility room plumbing jobs for the do-it-yourselfer. With commonsense tips, detailed drawings, and color photos, Cauldwell explains such projects as installing a dishwasher and converting a tub-only faucet to a tub/shower. An overview of tools appears last rather than in the introduction. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
