So one of the first things we needed to get accomplished was getting a new hot water heater that could be vented to the outside since our chimney was going to need to be removed before winter. In the process of doing and getting the leaking pipes around the water meter fixed we decided to also have all the old plumbing in the basement upgraded and cleaned up. It was a snake like mess of old mixed plumbing, galvanized and copper. We are picking our battles so to speak on what we want to tackle ourselves and what pays to hire out. Minor plumbing we can do ourselves but this was pretty major so we decided to hire it out. We hired Capital plumbing and they cleaned up the plumbing fixed the leaks an put in the new water heater. We just ran the venting piping and did that part ourselves. One thing done on the big list!
