Can You Do Plumbing Repairs Yourself?
- Some plumbing repairs require Permits. Work requiring a Permit includes replacing or repairs to water or sewer pipes, water heaters, and water softeners. A city inspection will follow completion of work to ensure the repairs are safe and up to code.
- Many plumbing repairs require the water to be shut off to the entire house. Therefore, if you are unable to complete the repair, subsequently you will have to wait, without water, until a plumber is available.
- Damaging other plumbing components during your repair efforts could result in more needing repair. For example, it’s easy to strip threads where plumbing connects, and many connections are soldered together. That connection must be cut off and replaced with a new connection.
- There can be surprises along the way. Perhaps a home built before 1970 likely has cast-iron waste pipes. Cast-iron plumbing rusts from the inside to the outside, which also means it starts to fail from the inside. Connecting a new toilet to an existing PVC Toilet Flange will likely be easy. However, if the home has a badly rusted, cast-iron toilet flange, it must be removed and replaced with a “retrofit” PVC flange before installing the new toilet.
- Did you know kitchen sinks have drains in various locations? If you install a new sink which is different from the old one, you must adjust the drain pipes coming out of the wall to align to the new drain location(s). Both sinks can be the same width and depth but have drains in completely different places.
