It's likely going to be a bad idea to attempt to do your plumbing yourself as many of the tasks require specialist knowledge in order to complete them correctly. Even simple, menial tasks such as bleeding your radiators has the potential to go wrong if you don't know what you're doing.

I understand why it's tempting to do your own plumbing. I recently renovated my bathroom and looked into it myself in an attempt to save money. Before you make any decisions, it's worth asking yourself a few important questions. What kind of plumbing jobs will you be doing? Do you have the knowledge required to do them correctly? Have you thought about how it might cost you more money in the long run to repair any damages you cause? Have you thought about how it could be very unsafe and endanger the residents of your home - particularly if you're going to be interacting your boiler?

There may also be legal requirements depending on your country of residence as some countries require anyone working with plumbing to be licensed and trained.

In the end, I figured that the risks outweighed the benefits and called in a professional plumber. I don't know the prices where you live, but I decided that plumbers in Tunbridge Wells really weren't expensive enough to warrant taking these kinds of risks.

water hammer is water moving in the pipe lack of air in pipe . Turn off water supply and open all taps start at the top one first right down to the lowest . drain all the water out then turn water back on and shut taps off starting with the lowest when water runs out . This should put air back into the system .

How to clean stains from a plastic pool step for a few bucks $

If your plastic pool step becomes stained (usually by metal deposition) there is an easy way to verify the problem. Take a vitamin c tablet and rub it across the stain. If the stain is immediately removed, and your step turns bright white again, then you can clean your step a couple of different ways. First, you can purchase one of the many products containing ascorbic acid from your local pool store, or the internet. Most of these products cost around $20 to $40.

Secondly, you can just take a handful (10 to 15 capsules) of vitamin c and clean the step yourself. Just take one of the tablets, starting at one end of the step, and rub it across the step. Slowly work around the step, cleaning a larger and larger area. In 30 minutes or so, and just a few bucks of vitamin c, you're done!
