OK, slick, explain how "remote" plumbing will work.
You really should engage your brain before slipping the clutch on you mouth (or in this case, the keyboard).
No all imaginable solutions end up being viable, but you don't know that until you put them on the drawing board and figure out what bugs there might be to iron out.
Plumbers, carpenters, etc. can work remotely by coaching and walking people through skilled tasks in their own homes. If an experienced worker tells you step-by-step what to do to fix your own problem, it will get fixed that way.
Ok and how do the home owners get the expensive equipment and machinery that you need in these skilled professions?
And you really think that an unskilled home owner would be capable of fixing a complex plumbing problem even while being guided? If that were the case everyone would just fix their issues via a youtube video. That is how I handle simple repairs or any other issue I have. I just handled an issue with the computer via a youtube video -
but I sure as h*ll am not going to have the mold removed from my house via this sort of guidance. Sorry but we did hire and will have a professional mold remover come in and take care of it even during this crisis.
There are some things that you leave to the professionals. Even legally there are some things that are required to have repaired by a licensed professional so that us unskilled people do not blow up our homes or repair other things that could potentially cause a fire or make our homes unsafe.
Bullsh*t. What do you do if he tells you that you need an offset pipe wrench? What do you do if he tells you that you need a compound leverage wrench? What do you do if he tells you that you need to solder a joint? What will you answer if he asks you if you have a snake?
You're just dancing now because, as is almost always the case, you don't know what the hell you're talking about.
I don't own a circular saw and I ain't buying one right now. I also don't own specialized plumbing equipment and, again, that's not in my budget today or ever.
And, BTW, I'm working through all of this. I hire professionals to do stuff correctly and efficiently (and up to code, too) and because I don't have the time to do so.
So what exactly does a professional mold remover do that you can't?
It's often cheaper to pay a high fee to a professional than to do it yourself. Quicker too. When my car needs almost anything at all, I pay my mechanic. It runs so much better and for a longer time.

I do not have access to the chemicals needed during this process - not only do they remove anything impacted by the mold - they treat the entire basement.
They so things such as creating negative air pressure so that mold spores and dust is not blown into other parts of the house that are not contaminated by mold. They use blowers and dehumidifiers to dry up or reduce moisture in moldy areas and use vacuums with HEPA filters all these sorts of things I do not have and would take time and more money to acquire - I also do not know how to use these and even with him walking me through - which I would need to spend money on for him to direct me what to do - which would likely take much more time as cost more money for his time spent.
And likely I would still screw something up - might make myself sick and may not get all the mold up.
So I would end up spending more money, take more time and likely leave mold spores behind even if I could get the proper equipment and chemicals - so why wouldn't I hire him? He can walk right through the bulkhead in the basement and I have no contact with him?
What you say is plain old stupid and you are just doing this because you are bored.
A depression is a severe and prolonged downturn in economic activity. In economics, a depression is commonly defined as an extreme recession that lasts three or more years or which leads to a decline in real gross domestic product (GDP) of at least 10 percent. in a given year. Depressions are relatively less frequent than milder recessions, and tend to be accompanied by high unemployment and low inflation.
The NBER defines a recession as a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.
The reality is that the more you do for yourself, the more you have left over to spend on the things you pay others to do for you.
I do as little as possible that doesn't involve a keyboard.
I don't cut my own hair or change my own oil or plant my own vegetables or raise my own beef. As Clint Eastwood put it, "a man's got to know his limitations."
