Can I fix a leaky pipe myself?

Depending on the scope of the problem, it is possible to fix a leaky pipe yourself, if you don't mind a challenge. Because you are dealing with water, and water can cause significant property damage, you shouldn't fix a leaky pipe yourself if you are not sure of what you are doing. If you are not confident that you can fix it properly, you should contact a local plumber. After all, you don't want to make the situation worse.
