Can I do my own plumbing?

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
Is it allowed to do your own plumbing?
This is determined by each town and or state. Check with your local plumbing inspector or building inspector to find out what you can and cannot do yourself and for what you would need a permit for.
If you are allowed to, I would check the following for great DIY tips:
Where I live, a homeowner can only change a washer or a mixing cartridge in a faucet. Hot water heating systems do not fall into the plumbing category, so you can do that yourself. Except where it ties into the domestic water line... Emergency repairs are also OK

That's it! Everything else you need to get the plumber.
