- Placing Too Much Weight on Fixtures: Don’t put weight on plumbing fixtures. That means not hanging heavy shampoo racks from showerheads or using the bathtub spout as a footrest. They are not made to have weight on them. It will snap the showerhead right off at the threads.
- Forgetting How Things Go Back Together: Taking apart your plumbing components is easy. Putting them back together? Not so much. Some experts advise taking digital pictures of the disassembly process to help when it’s time to put the item together again. Whether you’re working on your kitchen or your car, it’s a good idea to back up your own memory with some written records.
