There are some things that a person should just leave up to the professionals. Plumbing, the art of maintaining the separation of poop and shower water, is one of those things.

Plumbers are there to walk you through the process of diagnosing and fixing your piping and water supply, so...

The truth is, there are MANY things that can go wrong when "Do It Yourself-ers" try to tackle plumbing repairs without the supervision of an expert. Here are just a few of them:

8) When your drains fail and your entire basement level floods:

Pro tip: Do NOT, ever, walk around in a flooded basement and start tinkering with the fuse box that powers your house. Water and electricity do not mix well.

9) And finally, kitchen sink and poop.

Two things that should NEVER have to be used in the same sentence. Ever. Even when it involves this kid doing a much-needed dance number to wrap up the video coverage of the disgusting plumbing disaster.

Congratulations! You are now an expert in knowing what you don't know. Now get out there, and find yourself a real plumber, and relax knowing that whatever is broken, you won't be making it worse.
