You never know what you'll encounter during a remodel, so you have to be prepared to work around problems when they inevitably arise. In Plumbing, third-generation master plumber Rex Cauldwell provides real-world problems and solutions that you can use to figure out problems on your own jobs.

This book covers the full range of pipe types you'll likely encounter on a remodel job, including steel, copper, PB, CPVC, and PEX. You won't just learn how to install them, but how to tie them into existing systems. This complete guide explains:

  • The water supply system
  • Tapping into supply lines
  • Adding/running drains and vents
  • Remodeling kitchens and baths
  • Installing a dishwasher
  • Plumbing in an icemaker
  • Converting a tub-only faucet to a tub/shower
  • Installing a toilet in a basement
