An anecdotal history of plumbing from the Harappan of 3000 B.C. to the modern world is a tribute to such engineering achievements as the lead pipes of the Roman empire, the sewers of London, and Japanese toilets. By the author of Stolen Water. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
One of the fundamental tenets of modernism was its image of hygiene, its ideal of bringing cleanliness and order to the great unwashed, as evident in Adolf Loos's 1898 article, Plumbers. Using Loos as a point of departure, the essays in this collection examine architecture through the multiple meanings inherent in plumbing - from the pipes of modern hygiene, to the plumb line of the right angle, to Marcel Duchamp's Ready-made urinal.
Suitable for students setting out for a career in plumbing, this book helps them study for their Technical Certificate and Level 2 NVQ. It guides you through the key areas and processes in plumbing, from the basics through cold and hot water systems to health and safety and best practice on site.
