Interested in some important plumbing tips? If you live in an area where the temperature drops below freezing in the winter, there’s always the potential for your water lines to freeze. If this happens without your knowledge, the pipes could easily burst, resulting in an emergency plumbing situation. Not only will you have to hire a plumber or plumbing services, you’ll be faced with having to remove the water – possibly hundreds or thousands of gallons. By thinking and planning ahead, however, you can prevent frozen pipes and avoid an expensive plumbing repair. It’s best to do this months before the winter season begins.
I enjoyed reading about your remodel ideas here. I see it is a very popular subject by looking at all of these comments too. Anytime you are able to recycle in a creative and useful way like this everyone wins! I wish I had a handyman like your husband in my life too! Great hub.

As for the upflushing” drain/toilet – my parents had one installed and it works great. There’s some minor noise when it’s working but overall not bad. That wasn’t that cheap either though, at least a $1,000 – I’m not 100% sure because they had the entire bathroom cost bundled into one estimate – including the drain. This is an old cabinet I bought for $3.00 and hung up in our kitchen. It has a roll top door. I painted it and my husband hung it. We don’t have upper cabinets. We don’t feel we need them because we have a large pantry, but I thought this little cabinet looked so cute and country.
Now, if the water was not really nasty you can just mop the floors and clean the walls with all purpose cleaner. But if it was sewer water or other black water” you will need a sewage cleanup professional. Not only have the retail outlets kept pace by offering classes, manuals and more selections and styles that ever before, the media has also joined the ranks as the most prominent advocates for do-it-yourself-ers.
