Home Projects: Who Says You Need A Plumber?

Down here in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, finding a good plumber is a joke. I've been through probably half a dozen already since I've lived here, and my experiences with them have generally been less than a one star. Yes, it's that bad.
So I took it upon myself to start doing my own plumbing. So I bought a PEX crimper and off to the hardware store to get supplies for a bathroom remodel I'm doing.
I don't know if your recall, but not long ago, I ended up cutting one of my lines to the shower (when tearing out the fiberglass shower combo). I've since ripped all of the copper so I could rerun water to where I need it to go.
Working with PEX is surprisingly easy. I did multiple runs, angles, and valves without one single leak. I was actually surprised on just how easy it is to work with.
Save yourself quite a bit of money and tackle that plumbing job yourself. You will feel good with yourself and the new skill you learned.
