DIY YouTube, how “NOT” to do it.


If you plug the drain, you can save money for the caulking by omitting the house wrap.......Lol.

Watching videos like this is nothing but an ego booster if you had concerns that you were doing it wrong at all.

wow....

that gas leak one is just scary.

All these years i've been under the impression that you cant find leaks in a 0.5 psi (post regulator) residential gas lines with soap and water without disconnecting and pressurizing the system.

what a joke....how do people get away with this stuff.

I watched one guy's video about replacing electric hot water heater elements.
When he got to the end, he forgot to mention "Let the heater fill back up with water" before restoring power.
I'm not a plumber, but I thought restoring power to a dry water heater would fry the new elements.

Out of all youtube videos, the 'expert village idiots' have to be the worst ones. They all seem to do a very shoddy job, plus the videos are very annoyingly cut into small segments that are hard to watch in order.
