I could care less how much work is lost to DIY'rs. There's always going to be job security for me when everyone on the weekend trys to be a plumber.
I DIY also but I'm not going to do something one time and tell everyone I know all.
There's plenty of work for aaaaaaallll of us. I just got a call to work on an American water heater, aka craftmaster aka whirlpool.
It was bought from a supply house, it's the identical one you see at Lowe's. Lady was getting on my nerves and told her to call somebody else, you're killing me.
I'm off this weekend till the phone rings.
