Beyond practical tips, the book explores the value of water as a limited resource, touching on the importance of water conservation and the complexity of municipal water management.


All About Water is useful for the homeowner who wants to learn how to read their water bill, anyone concerned about the global water crisis, or those who fall somewhere between. This book has something for everyone!

All about water

Thank you for mentioning my book, my desire is to inform and help everyone understand water and how they can have a better water experience. Both at this event and online or on the phone I answer questions on what, how and everything that is water. Plumbing DIY is a speciality, so any questions on that is welcome as well..."Well" a deep hole in the ground with water at the bottom, hopefully....
