Don’t Call a Plumber…I Can Handle it


Building a house, remodeling, or renovating all require special skills.  Handy skills. Skills which, without watching countless hours of YouTube videos, I do not posess. The most I could probably do would be turn on the light switch to see if the light fixture was installed properly.

Since I worked for a home improvement store’s call center in the plumbing department, and was designated as the “flooring” expert, I would love to be handy in one of those areas. Most of what my job entailed was sales, and basic product knowledge. Not quite enough to get my hands dirty with any installation or maintenance.

P-Traps,  trip levers,  overflows, and rough ins, yeah I have the lingo, now I just need the Plumbing 101 lesson plan to actually put these words to use.  After seeing so many beautiful kitchens and bathrooms, plumbing would be a great skill to have. It would definitely save money when building my dream home.  Let’s not talk about repairs! I am not sure what the going rate for a plumber is, but I’ve watched enough sitcoms to know people don’t want to pay those prices.
