Need to fix sink in Brooklyn? It is ironic that trying to save money can often drive people to make some expensive mistakes. If you are like most people today when you want to a self-help solution, you trot on over to YouTube to see if others have come up with a viable solution to your problem. However, sometimes DIY’ers take this behavior several steps further. While DYI can be appropriate for some home projects when it comes to plumbing, DIY can cause more problems than it solves.
DIY’ers often wind up spending more money trying to remedy plumbing fixes gone wrong than if they’d just hired a professional plumber in the first place. There comes a point when even the most confident DIY’er has to tip his head to the side and say, “There’s no way I can figure this out on my own. I have to ask someone what’s going on.” Omni Plumbing Services out of Melbourne, Australia posted this video of plumbing disasters, where you can see quite a funny mix of ineffective solutions to plumbing problems.
What’s Up with Rain’s Faucet?
YouTube user Rain Smith posted a video that shows us just how far down the rabbit hole plumbing problems can go. Rain’s faucet is drinking water because there’s no back pressure in the line, so the water goes down the pipe, not up. When this happens, it creates a suction effect, like when you put your thumb on the end of your straw when it is in a glass of water. The water stays there suspended until you let go, and the water goes back down.
