The Plumbing Encyclopaedia has been written in encyclopaedic form to enable the student, plumber and heating engineer to find accurate information on specific aspects of their craft quickly. The book includes entries and definitions for over 2300 terms, components, techniques and working practices, clearly explaining the terminology used by plumbers. Topics covered include:

cold and hot water supplies

hot water heating

radiant heating

solar heating

electrical work


sheet weathering

gas and oil supplies

warm air heating

steam heating

air conditioning

building science

and many more

British Standards and legislation related to plumbing continue to be updated, so terms and definitions must also be updated to reflect current use. With all entries scrutinised and updated where necessary to reflect these changes plus over 100 new entries the fourth edition of the Plumbing Encyclopaedia remains the definitive source for all plumbers. In addition, more than 400 full colour illustrations, redrawn since the previous edition, enhance the legibility and usefulness of the definitions.
