Each plumbing project brings unique challenges. If you are setting out on your own project, here are some things to keep in mind:
Protect your hands:
Nobody wants to lose the function of their hands. Protect them with gloves throughout the entire process. Whether you are using sharp objects (like a utility knife), or using any chemicals (like plumbing adhesives) it is best practice to keep your hands safe during the process.
Protect your eyes:
There are some nasty concoctions that brew inside drain pipes, and you do not want that, or any chemicals to get into your eyes while you undergo your personal plumbing project. WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES!
Protect your lungs:
Using a face mask to filter the air of all the harmful particulates is a smart idea in any construction project. Also, be certain to apply any necessary chemicals in a well ventilated area.
