Vinyl plumbing is the intelligent alternative to old-fashioned metal systems. It does not rust, rot, or corrode, and installs easily without any special tools. Leaky joints are a thing of the past when connections are made easy by solvent welding or using handy, specially designed fittings. Replacements and additions are easy -- and some of these products can be combined with metal to supplement your existing system.
When the right materials are used -- chiefly PVC vinyl -- plumbing is simple. You can do it yourself. Lots of people do. In fact, if you can wield a paint brush, swing a saw, if you know how to read a rule, use a level, and you know water flows downhill, you will be a big success at do-it-yourself plumbing.
By making the installations yourself, you stand to save about three-fourths of the cost. This is because plumbing is about 25 percent materials and 75 percent labor. The exact 25:75 mix varies slightly according to the level -- the quality -- of fixtures used. Another benefit of do-it-yourself plumbing: if you run out of money, you can stop and continue later.
The author of the book, Richard Day, has been a pioneer in promoting successful and easy do-it-yourself methods for home plumbing. He was first to call the homeowner's attention to CPVC tubes and fittings almost 20 years ago. His four previous books on home plumbing all have brought the latest information on water supply with vinyl. This is his fifth plumbing book, a cover-to-cover new treatment of his previous "Plumb-It-Yourself, It's Easy With Genova." This book brings you the whole new story on using Genova vinyls.
A do-it-yourself writer in the home and workshop field for more than 40 years, Day has written numerous articles and books on home repairs and improvements. He also is consulted by publishers of do-it-yourself books. during the course of all this, he built three houses from the ground up, doing every task from bricklaying and concrete masonry to electrical and plumbing work. More recently, he helped a friend plumb a two-story, three bedroom house using all Genova materials from water supply to sewer connection.
Genova Products, Inc. has been a leader in the do-it-yourself plumbing industry since 1962. They are the worlds largest manufacturer of vinyl plumbing, and the only company to make whole-house plumbing pipe and fittings -- from the well or water line to the sewer or septic system. And Genova's products are widely available in hardware stores, home centers, and now by mail order catalog.
So, if you have questions about any aspect of plumbing -- the Do-It-Yourself Plumbing book has the answers you need!
