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!

I don’t think that I would ever trust myself to do much of the heavy plumbing at my house. If anything I’ll do some of the plumbing (with tons of tests) for my tanks when setting them up, but that is as advanced as I’ll ever get.
