Because of the time period we live in, with access to so much information online, many people believe that they should take it upon themselves to fix every issue they come across after referencing a few articles online. This is a great attitude to have but sometimes it can be counter intuitive. Some people will do just enough research to have enough knowledge to hurt themselves, not help them. One of the ways that many people cause large amounts of damage to their homes is when they take it upon themselves to replace their own plumbing.
Replacing plumbing is not an easy thing. Think of the piping in your home as a complicated network where any adjustment can cause a failure somewhere else in the system. That's exactly how your plumbing works. One wrong pipe in just the right area could lead to failure at the other end of your house. Because of that I always suggest to customers that, if they want to try and attack these big projects on their own, at least get an assessment from a professional first. A professional plumber can tell you exactly what you need to know and really give you the knowledge that will lead to an informed decision.
If you decide to hire a licensed plumber then you are putting your ducks in the right order. A certified plumber will have the backing of his education, his company, and his reputation behind him. They are armed with the right knowledge to fix your issues and will be the ones culpable if your issue is not serviced in the right way. A bonded and insured plumber can take all of the pressure that you would carry yourself while doing the repair work and finish the job without you having to stress at all.
So with that in mind, consider calling up a plumber before taking a wrench to your plumbing. It's not that you can't do the job, it's that there are people better suited to do it safely and more efficiently.
