I have never understood people not wanting to "bother" the landlord. It's their house, and their maintenance. If you are inexperienced, you can end up doing 10x the damage to the property.

There's no reason not to make the landlord hire a professional and change it.

I agree with you, Matt, and ideally that would be true, however a professional plumber isn't necessarily what I get, and 50 percent of the time, I end up with new problems. For example, one guy he sent up twisted the stem of my hot water shut off valve knob until it wouldn't function anymore. Another time, a guy sent up to change a washer in a faucet ended up ruining the stem and scratching my tub. There are more examples, but in short, if the job is simple enough, I research into it and fix it myself. I've been here 25 years and have never caused any damage, but I can't say the same for the people that have been sent up to fix things. So I'm here asking for advice, to find out if it's a complicated job or simple, and to make sure I do it correctly.
I value and appreciate your expertise and experience on this forum. Thank you, everyone, for your help!
