, a LEED-AP plumber and water advocate with over 40 years experience as a licensed contractor, tells the complete story of water through two fictional characters, cousins named Mike and Mac Ro. Mac and his wife Jane care about Planet Earth, they are advocates for nature. They do their best to educate Mike and Goldie who love the fast life and creature comforts and could care less about conservation and sustainability. Illustrator Audrey Ly, a recent honors graduate of San Diego State University with a degree in Multimedia, brings every concept to life with vibrant story-telling art. There is nothing in the marketplace today like this timely and relevant book.
It’s easy-to-read and full of verifiable, useful information. The book is intended for first-time homeowners, but anyone who uses water will benefit from reading this fun little book no matter how they get their water. The artwork is engaging and explains the concepts covered. “A picture is worth a thousand words” is the theme of this volume packed with valuable information and an entertaining story told in pictures.
Reviewer Kat Kennedy says, “I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend it to anyone wishing to learn more about water, plumbing, and conservation. It offers valuable information and includes plenty of references and links for those seeking more.

Every living thing requires clean water to live and providing that water is a multifaceted process.
