Publisher Comments:

The 4th edition of Plumbing continues to provide the definitive single volume text on plumbing, heating and gas installation work, ideal for students working towards their Diploma in plumbing or NVQ/SVQ at levels 2 and 3. Highly illustrated and easy to read and understand, it tackles plumbing topic by topic, in double page spreads with text, full colour illustrations, and clear photographs, enabling the reader to grasp the essentials quickly and easily. This approach ensures it also provides a concise reference for the trained plumber.

Special features include:

  • concise text
  • many clear, full colour illustrations
  • around 140 photographs
  • topics focussed on the needs of NVQ/SVQ levels 2 and 3
  • additional topics beyond levels 2 and 3
  • a self-assessment section
  • a problem-solving section

This new edition has been thoroughly updated to take account of changes to the Building Regulations, including changes to the following approved documents: Part F: Ventilation; Part G: Sanitation, hot water safety and water efficiency; Part H: Drainage and waste disposal; Part L: Conservation of fuel and power and Part P: Electrical safety. A significant new section on energy conservation & sustainability has been added, and additional related material introduced where relevant. The extensive coverage with new, full colour illustrations to enhance legibility and understanding, and the emphasis on safety in the work place ensure this remains the definitive single volume for both student and trained plumbers.

Book News Annotation:

Treloar (Colchester Institute) updates his textbook, previously published between 1994 and 2006, introducing the wide range of tasks that come under the aegis of plumbing. Changes to the Building Regulation have been accounted for in this edition and he has added a new chapter on energy conservation. Other topics include hot and cold water supplies, central heating, oil supplies, drainage, and sheet weathering. A final chapter contains self-assessment tools. The textbook features numerous clearly marked diagrams and figures, many in color, along with around 140 photographs. A companion website for students and instructors is available.
