help prevent future problems

I am remodeling my shower soon. I will be removing a shower base and installing tile flooring. I am also cosidering altering my shower plumbing a bit, maybe dual shower heads or jets. I have heard that if you do things like this yourself and not by licensed contractor or plumber, it can cause problems when selling your home. I do plan on selling at some point in my life, has anyone had experiance with this or know somthing that would be helpful.

It is always a good idea to pull a permit for this type of work. That way you have evidence that it was done to the minimum standard of the code in your area.

I don't see any reason to pay a plumber to do it if you can do it correctly yourself. If something works wrong or looks odd, it would certainly attract attention at the time of sale.
