    What is sad there are 100's of "How To" videos and web pages that have people giving advice on how to repair things that are going to cause more trouble for anyone that does not know any better and listen to this so called advice. Now I am not just saying the following because I am a licensed plumber, but in all honesty if you do not know how to do something like power rod a sewer or drain, design a DWV system that will meet your local codes, its best to call a pro. Yes you can learn how to do this stuff, but it will not happen in a couple of days. Plumbers have to be an apprentice for 5 years and take at least 4 years of schooling here in Illinois. The union shops make their apprentice plumbers take 5 years of schooling. I bet I can learn heart surgery if I did enough research, but it still does not make me qualified to perform it.

    I am not saying you can not do simple repairs and such but when things get complicated or dangerous a pro should be called. I have the knowledge on how to rebuild an engine even do some major repairs. But I rather have a pro do it for the fact he has had the experience of doing such things in the past plus has the right tools for the job. Also if he screws up he is responsible to make it right, if I screw up, well I am just plane screwed.
