      "Recently, I replaced a water heater by myself. First, I turned off the breaker. Then, I drained the tank connecting the hose for the drain valve and opened the pressure valve.



      Next, I prepared a new one, installing hoses and pressure valves properly. Then, I unplugged all connections of the old one and removed it from the space. Then, I replaced the water heater, connecting all the pipes and electrical wiring. Finally, I filled the tank, checked the pressure on the pipes, and turned on the breaker."

      Rather than give a step-by-step on how you did it, try listing a few significant projects you have worked on.

      "I have recently been doing some DIY at home since moving back to the UK. Fortunately, I have my dad who is great at this kind of stuff to guide me. We recently replaced a ceiling light and plug sockets and light switches. I researched all of these jobs online before carrying out the work so I was familiar with the process before starting."
