Almost anyone can do a few simple plumbing jobs around the house if they are patient and careful and have the right equipment. Of course, many readers may find the following jobs pretty basic. But if you’re a new homeowner or a novice do-it-yourselfer, you might want to read further. 

Install braided stainless steel supply lines on toilets, sinks and washing machine. In many older homes, the supply lines to your sinks, toilets and washing machine may be made of rubber or plastic, all of which could spring leaks and lead to serious water damage. It’s a simple job to replace them with braided steel lines, plumbers say. You simply have to shut off the water supply in each case, unscrew nuts to remove the old lines and screw on the new lines.

    This is wonderful. I look forward to additional tips on other areas of the home. Anything to keep the costs down when it is something that the homeowner can do on his/her own! Contractors have enough business taking care of the major problems when they arise and only have so much time to get to everyone. Keep up the good work, "Rosie".
