This was a valuable book to me, in that, it was informative, opened up options, and the instructions for adding improvements and engaging in other projects were detailed enough to make getting the job done easier and make the operation of a water heating unit more efficient and safer. The writing of the book was concise and had a slight amount of humor mingled in with it. The quotes in the book (Yes, there are quotes) of various people from the past, and the accounts of real-life situations (some of which are hilarious) are, for the most part, a nice touch. One of the downsides of the book is that it is rather old (1992). Not that that is an overwhelming factor, but some of the information is a bit aged, and this isn't cheese, so that is not a good thing. As an example, there is a portion of the book that discusses various options for the purchase of new water heating units should your existing heater bite the dust (which probably won't be the case). That sounds good in all, but some of the information, like with the on-demand and wood fired waters heaters, are dated somewhat, which would probably affect your opinion of purchasing that particular unit, so, in that case, extra research would need to be done by you to make sure you get the straight scoop.
Overall, this is a very good book. It is informative, and will help lead you into the right direction to, not only knowing the possible problems and responsibilities as a homeowner, but also help you to take action to add many more years of life onto your unit. Instead, though, of jumping on the band wagon and purchasing the book immediately, I would suggest instead that, if possible, that you take it out of your local library first before purchasing it.
This review comes to an end now.
It seems that there is a great deal of ignorance out there by both homeowners and plumbers on residential water heaters. Maybe its just that the plumbers would rather get the $$ to replace your water heater than make sure you know how to make it last for decades.
This book fills that knowledge gap quite well. It should come included with every home purchase!
