Covering all the potential sources of water, this book shows you how to find, connect, maintain, treat and store water, making it safe to drink in the most environmentally sound way possible.

Whether you have a mains supply or a private one, whether you want to understand it better or supplement it from another source, this book is full of invaluable advice on how to get it done. Suited to homeowners and professionals alike, Regulations applying to water supplies in the UK are demystified and case studies are used to illustrate clear solutions to real-life water supply problems.
