Best DIY Plumbing book?

FriggyMarch 13, 2011

I am getting ready to do the plumbing in our new master bath and want to make sure I do everything correctly and to code. I have done a lot of research but one of my main concerns is venting. I have looked into the Taunton books such as Code Check Complete or individual, and the Black and Decker books. Any opinions from fellow DIY'ers on which is the most thorough and comprehensive book out there?

I'm a fan of Taunton publications, but venting requirements can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, so, after you educate yourself on the possibilities, it would be best to check with your local code authorities if you want to be sure it's to code.

Thanks, I ordered the Code Check Complete and the Black and Decker. I guess I will see which one has more detail. Figured I couldn't go wrong with the code check complete as I am constantly doing pretty big projects around the house.

Thanks Again

Youtube videos can also be informative, as a supplement to the books.
