6 Plumbing Fixes You Can Do Yourself
We tend to do as many jobs as possible ourselves. My husband does all of our vehicle maintenance. We raise our own chickens and beef cows. We do routine home maintenance.
This helps us to save money. It also gives a great sense of satisfaction. And, we live in a very rural area. Having the knowledge to be self-sufficient is a necessary component of rural, farm living.
The time to think about major jobs is before they are necessary. Like with most things, when it comes to plumbing issues, they usually start out small and grow worse without repair. By tending to those issues as they arise, you will save money and time.
Before you can tackle any home repair tasks, you need to have a tool kit. While you may need specific tools for some jobs, these tools should cover the basics. For plumbing repairs, your tool kit should include:
Learn where your water supply shut off is located. Many simple plumbing repairs will require you to turn the water off, either at the source (such as a sink) or at the main home supply. Knowing where these shut-offs are located is important. You can typically find shut-offs near the sink or in your home’s basement, and you’ll usually find your system’s main water shut-off where the water line enters your house.
Now that you have all of the tools you need, let’s tackle these plumbing fixes you can do yourself!
