This is by far my favorite plumbing books as I renovated 2 bathrooms. 1 of the bathroom renovation involved installing a bathtub, and the second one included creating a custom shower pan. There are over 1 million copies of this book sold, that just to tell you this book is really popular. I really like this book, I ended up buying a copy for future reference.

1. Very clear pictures. Love black and decker photos, they are very detail.
2. A lot of detail on how to create shower pan, and tub installation.
3. This book is very thick almost 300 pages of plumbing information.

1. It does not have a lot of information about Drain/Waste/Vent, plumbing requires a lot of understand and setting up drain/waste/vent.
2.Focus too much on how to fix and maintenance of toilet. I think like most people, if the toilet is leaking, they would just simply buy whole new kit and install it or just simply replace the whole toilet all together.
3. Does not go into too much detail on selecting backerboard for bathroom renovation.
4. Not enough detail on how to replace garden hose bibb.
5. Does not show you how to replace bathroom fan or add one.
6. Does not tell you what are common mistakes people make when doing bathroom renovations.

Comprehensive on fixing your taps & unclogging drains, but if you are doing any renos and need to adjust & move plumbing, this book does not help whatsoever.

Does not address vents, wet vents, and drains and their requirements.
