See previous posts from the "How To Plumbing Series" to obtain a brief introduction

In the first installment of the How To series on toilets, we looked at how toilets work and we started the process for installing a new toilet, focusing on preparation and removing the old potty.

In this installment we look at installing a new toilet. This is something most homeowners can do themselves without calling a plumber. However, there are a few places where people may prefer using a professional plumber rather than doing it themselves.

How To Plumbing Series Toilets Part 1

See previous posts from the "How To Plumbing Series" to obtain a brief introduction

In the first two installments of the How To Plumbing Series we looked at plumbing emergencies. Over the next several posts we will shift our focus to — drum roll please — toilets.

Yep. There’s a lot to know about toilets.

Installing And Using A Water Softener

You researched the hard water issue at your home and decided to purchase and install a water softener yourself to help solve the annoying water problem.

In this post we take a look at installing and maintaining a water softener.

Do note: Most homeowners who are comfortable with Do It Yourself projects around the house and who are familiar with basic plumbing should be able to install a water softener themselves. However, if you are unsure of your DIY skills and plumbing knowledge, call your plumber for assistance. It will cost extra dinero, but you’ll have a peace of mind that the job is done correctly and you can save a weekend day to watch the Bulldogs, Falcons, or Braves.

Many homeowners hate calling a heating, ventilation, or air conditioning (HVAC) specialist, plumber, electrician, or any other kind of service technician for a variety of reasons like:

  • Don’t want to spend the money
  • Think they can do it on their own
  • Don’t know who to call
  • Don’t want to mess with it
  • Don’t know who’s honest and who is not

In a previous post we provided tips on finding a plumber. In this post we look at a few sneaky plumber tricks of the trade.
