You Might Need a Plumber – While there are quite a few plumbing related tasks that you can do yourself around the house, there will inevitable come a time when you need to call in a qualified plumber, especially if the job has anything to do with gas in which case you will not only need a plumber but also a Gas Safe registered one, who has all the necessary qualifications to work with gas and give certifications that the work has been done correctly. Among the jobs that you might try for yourself (assuming that you are pretty useful with your hands), are changing tap washers to stop those pesky dripping taps that have been driving you mad for months, bleeding a radiator when your heating system is just not doing its job, and clearing a blocked drain or toilet, which you might need to buy some simple tools to complete. If there is anything wrong with your gas boiler, your gas heater or your gas oven, call in a Gas Safe plumber or heating engineer. For quite a lot of small plumbing jobs like replacing a wash basin or toilet, you could try the services of a handyman who will be cheaper than a plumber, though if you want confidence that the job is done properly, maybe calling in a plumber would be best and to hell with the cost.
