Sep 23rd 2010 4:25PM Take photos of any piping inside a wall before you close it up. Put a tape measure in the picture, from a known object, corner, etc. You then know exactly where something is for future repairs, hanging pictures, etc. It also shows proof for any code questions.
Sep 4th 2010 8:33AM I am a licensed master plumber and have a few comments. Many plumbing projects are diy,
(which I encorage) however a little studying before you turn off the water is recomened. I also strongly recomend dealing with an an actual plumbing supply house over a "big box store" for quality parts and reliable advice. Hint: take a picture of the problem or needed part. preferibly with a tape measure in the photo. I will save time and multible trips. Also, a closet auger is a snake specifacly used for clearing toilets. A small hand crank snake is very useful, and the "feel" give you feed back.
