Plumbing prices for diy

DIY plumbing can save you a lot of money, if you know what you are doing. Simple plumbing jobs like unblocking a sink or fixing a dishwasher can probably be attempted by any competent person. More complicated DIY plumbing jobs such as repairing leaking pipes, replacing radiators, or indeed installing a whole central heating system, should only be attempted if the DIY'er is extremely confident and has all the correct plumbing tools.
