Do-It-Yourself Plumbing Repairs

It’s true, some people might think sharing do-it-yourself tutorials is a strange thing for a professional plumbing company to do. Call us crazy, but we think that if you’re going to attempt to repair something on your own, we’d rather have you learn the steps from professionals like us and not some no-name “expert” who posted a how-to online. We’re a local, family-owned company, and we truly care about our customers. If we can help you save a little money by walking you through a DIY project, we consider that a success. One way we recommend saving money is by getting all your needed parts from Tradefix Direct, visit this page to browse their products and services. We know that when your plumbing needs exceed your expertise, you’ll give us a call first.

For many of these DIY projects, you do not need any expensive or hard-to-find supplies or tools. Most of the things you’ll need can be found at your neighborhood hardware store. Every home is different and there are unique challenges with every plumbing project so don’t be discouraged if you end up calling in reinforcements. We are always happy to stop by and take a look.


There are some projects that we would never advise a homeowner to attempt on their own. Gas line installation is dangerous, and there are complex regulations that must be followed in order to keep you safe. Major leaks and plumbing emergencies are best left to the professionals. Installing a new hot water heater or hot water recirculation system can be quite tricky, depending on the equipment you are working with. If you’re ever unsure, feel free to give us a call. As they say, it’s much better to be safe than sorry!
