Changing one of those little rubber faucet washers may be easy, but taking on larger plumbing projects can turn into a major mess. From differences in piping materials requiring change-outs or conversion fittings to dealing with water pressure issues, the prospect of saving money by doing your own plumbing work may seem attractive, but the reality is anything but. Oh, did we mention the ick factor involved in working with smelly drains?
Even if you do get the project completed, dastardly leaks could spring up that you may not see until they've done some major damage. Can you spell toxic mold?
