Common DIY Plumbing Mistakes to Avoid

There may come a point when you think you can tackle a plumbing project on your own.

While some people have the experience and knowledge to do so with success, this doesn’t hold true across the board.

Here are a handful of common DIY plumbing mistakes to avoid at all costs:

  • Forgetting to turn off the water. If you do this, there’s a very good chance you’ll end up soaking wet. Even worse, you could cause damage to your home.
  • Neglecting to use the proper tools. It’s hard to complete a plumbing job with success unless you have the right tools at your disposal.
  • Too much drain cleaner. If your drain is clogged, you may get into the habit of using one cup of drain cleaner after the next. This sounds like a good idea, but it can actually cause more harm than good. Rather than go down this path, dry a hand auger or drain snake.

While these are among the most common DIY plumbing mistakes, there are others that could cause you trouble at some point.
