Plumbing is one of those fun types of
do it yourself projects that just about anyone can enjoy. Along with painting, plumbing is one of those nice, relaxing projects that does not really take too much skill to be able to partake in. All you really need is the ability to measure things correctly, apply glue to the ends of pipes and be able to screw different fixtures onto the end of threaded pipes. Just about anyone with a little common sense and the right tools can do the job right.
Now, as a note, this does not extend to all DIY plumbing projects, as some require that you know how to use cutting torches and other high tech equipment. However, for most DIY plumbing projects, you can just use the tools already in your home.
Some of the most common DIY plumbing projects will be in your bathrooms and in your garden. In a bathroom there are tons of different things that will make great DIY projects that you can get everyone in your immediate family involved in. From fixing a leak in a shower to replacing the faucets with brand new fixtures, just about any project in a bathroom can be considered “do it yourself.” With the right tools, namely a wrench, some pliers, some pipe glue and a few other things, you will be well on your way to creating the perfect bathroom without the need to hire an expensive plumbing professional.
If you prefer working in the great outdoors, there are plenty of outside DIY plumbing projects as well. For example, if you have a garden but you don't enjoy going outside every day to water it, you can install your own drip system. Consisting of a pump, a timer and a large network of pipes, a drip system is a great DIY plumbing project that does not involve any fancy tools or the need for any extremely expensive parts, making it a great starter plumbing project.
