Do you do your own plumbing at home?

Post by Lammchen » July 27th, 2019, 8:28 am

Being a homeowner means you either have to have enough money to afford hiring people when there is a problem or you learn how to do things yourself!

Today I'm doing plumbing. We have a leak at the shut off valve in our master bath so I am going to replace it with a SharkBite push to fit shut off valve and I'm worried since I have to cut the old CPVC pipe and make sure it's a clean cut and that there is enough room to remove it in case it leaks. I am not doing the primer/cement way because that takes 6 hours to dry before the water can be turned back on.

So do you do your own plumbing at home? Got any tips for me? :D

I couldn’t even imagine doing my own plumbing. I mean for my aquariums I have added in a sumo before using PVC piping, but nothing with s high requirement not to leak or break (like in a house).

You’re a brave one for sure!
