Just because the water’s dripping outside doesn’t mean you want it dripping inside. Join Second Use for our free plumbing workshop Saturday, Dec. 8, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The workshop will cover two main topics—faucets and toilets. For faucets, learn about key tools, how to rebuild a valve, and trouble-shooting a leak. For toilets, learn about the different parts, how a toilet works, how to prevent a toilet from running, and installing a toilet in your bathroom. Plus, there will be plenty of time for your own plumbing project questions. Deborah Henry will lead the workshop.
