Building Moxie Does a Round Up :: 19 DIY Plumbing Tips & Tricks on


Here’s one of the things that is so great about Hometalk. You don’t have to scour the web, at all.  You just go to their site, look, and you’ll find a wealth of tips and inspiration provided in an ultra visual format. But all in one location.  All posts are user-supplied, making it one of the most unbiased media (other than some of the more mature forums) that I have found.


We have covered HomeTalk a few times on this site, and it’s true – I am pretty friendly with the gang.  At the Remodeling Show last year, we interviewed their Director of Community Development, Miriam Illions; I have guest posted on their blog; and we have even been featured in their illustrious BlogLight – probably the most comprehensive look at our blog to date.  (See The Story of Our Blog.)

HomeTalk has a really nice ClipBoard feature, and I guess, apparently, they are looking to chat it up.  So they have been asking bloggers like me to curate boards on specific topics. They asked me specifically about DIY Plumbing … and, well, because I had already been working with another site *cough* on the identical theme – it seemed like a really good fit. And okay, sure … thank you and here’s what I came up with.

19 DIY Plumbing … Tips and Tricks?

Couple of notes on the posts that I gathered.  While this board is called “DIY Plumbing Tips and Tricks”, and I am more than capable, myself, of tackling many DIY Plumbing tasks – Home Plumbing is not anything that should be taken lightly. I cannot suggest there won’t eventually be some occasion when you will need to call in a pro. Home Plumbing is a complex, and potentially … destructive, system that contains many wide and varying elements.

That said – I did have a little fun with my board, including stretching the term and the topic “plumbing” a bit (*tongue in cheek*).  I grabbed some posts from pro friends Woodbridge Environmental & Hamtil Construction to depict the … What Could Happen.  For more straight forward and diyable tasks, I turned to Sarah @ the Ugly Duckling House and others … but to be completely honest, I leaned pretty heavily on heavy user Jeff Patterson, the Home Repair Tutor.  (You can actually find an interview with Jeff here >> Building Moxie Interviews the Home Repair Tutor.)

Anyway, thanks Jeff, thanks HomeTalk, and I hope to chat you up again on plumbing soon. Oh and between the time that I created this post and time that that pinnable graphic above was delivered to me, I added two more clips to my board (can’t stop … sorry) for a total of 21 DIY Plumbing Tips and Tricks.  ~jb
