Hints and Tips for the Practical Plumber
by Jo Lawrence

Hints & Tips for the Practical Plumber is a unique and essential guide aimed at all plumbing students leaving college and plumbers wanting to set up their own businesses. Due to it’s practical advice and supporting pictures, it can also be used by competent DIYers, although nothing replaces the help of a professional tradesperson.

Hints & Tips has had positive reviews, not just from student plumbers, but also from DIY readers who have found it incredibly helpful, not just for doing DIY but also knowing roughly what they should be paying a plumber for a job and how long it should take on average.

For students struggling to complete the NVQ2, Hints & Tips has a chapter written specifically on how to use this guide to help you complete the NVQ2 qualification.

Based on over 10 years of experience working as a plumber, Jo Lawrence’s insights and practical tips ensure that the transition from college to the real world of plumbing is a pain-free and positive step. Designed to build confidence and help plumbers navigate the often scary realities of setting up on their own, Hints & Tips is the must-have handbook for all plumbers.

This handbook is suitable for all plumbing students leaving college with or without a formal apprenticeship. It supports those searching for placements to gain the necessary experience, and makes a handy encouragement for anyone who has attempted to go into the plumbing industry in the past but has not managed to get a work placement.

“Most plumbing books are written for students training as plumbers, not for plumbers plumbing in the real world. In my experience, many students that train in college can’t find someone to take them on to show them the ropes, and so fall back into other jobs. Hints & Tips teaches them how to turn their college skills into a thriving business, teaching them what they don’t learn in college about how to plumb,” Jo comments on the inspiration behind her book.

Hints & Tips has been written with British plumbing as the example, however most of the techniques and tips are not country specific, so Hints & Tips is for plumbers all over the world.

Even though Hints & Tips was written for students she has had positive reviews from DIY readers who have also found it incredibly helpful, not just for the DIY but also knowing roughly what they should be paying a plumber for a job and how long it should take on average.
