Should plumbing repairs ever be a Do-It-Yourself project? Well, it some cases it might be alright. For instance, perhaps you have a clog that is close to the surface of your sink drain and you can just relieve it on your own with nothing more than a sink plunger and a little bit of elbow grease.
So sure, we do encourage “DIYers” in some cases, but definitely not all. When it comes you’re your plumbing, it may be unsafe to try to handle things on your own, as you can wind up doing more harm than good to your plumbing system and possibly even leave yourself susceptible to more problems in the future. We advise that for trickier problems, you contact a professional Palatine, IL plumber.
