How to make your own home’s plumbing
A few years ago, the world was reeling from a massive water leak in a house in New York City.
That incident prompted city officials to put in place a program that allows homeowners to install their own plumbing and sprinkler systems.
Now, a few months after the city was flooded again, a similar problem has reemerged: A leak in one of the city’s main water mains in Brooklyn.
According to the New York Post, a resident of the house found his pipes leaking after the pipes were installed on his balcony, and the homeowner reported it to the city.
When the homeowner contacted the city, they found that the leak had been occurring in the basement.
The homeowner is currently facing criminal charges and is expected to be arraigned on Friday.
One homeowner in the area has also been charged with illegally installing water mens water-pump systems on his home.
According a New York Times article from January, New York has the nation’s largest residential water system, with more than 2,000 pipes.
That’s more than three times the size of New Jersey, and New York state accounts for about 5 percent of the US population.
As of this writing, New Yorkers are also being charged with installing private water-main replacements on their homes, and homeowners can be fined $1,000 for the illegal installation.
