Buying guide

PlumbingChoosing your plumbing tools

 

Make your plumbing kit

The first thing you should try and do is get a plumbing kit. Plumbing kits are available across online stores. However, you will scarcely find a kit that contains every tool that you require. A better idea is perhaps to make a list of the basic plumbing tools and buying them separately if a plumbing kit doesn’t include some of them. And as you become more experience doing basic plumbing jobs, you may want to increase your armoury of plumbing tools.

 

Make sure you have all the basic plumbing tools

Depending on your mechanical skills, the basic plumbing tools could be many. For instance, you may be completely comfortable using a propane blowlamp, but we won't advise beginners buying such a potentially dangerous tool. Given below are some of the really basic tools that can help you do some plumbing jobs at home. If you feel you can handle more than those tools listed here, go ahead.

 

-          Cap plunger – for unclogging sinks and drains

-          Socket or ratchet set – for using with nuts and bolts

-          Hacksaw – for cutting screws, pipes and nuts

-          Wrench – available in various sizes for using on nuts and bolts and pipes

-          Toilet plunger – different models available for sinks and toilets

-          Pliers – for better grip

-          Tape and putty – for stopping leaks

-          Silicone caulk – for repairing leaks in tubs and sinks

-          Putty knife – for applying wax and caulk and removal too

-          Tape measure – for various measurements

-          Spray lubricant – for loosening pipe and nut fittings

 

Plumbing setIdentify the most basic plumbing issues for troubleshooting

When it comes to basic plumbing jobs, there is only so much that you can do. For jobs that are more complicated, it is always sensible to call for a professional. Among the most common plumbing issues are leaks. Leaks can be found anywhere in your plumbing system and in most of the cases, you can stop it. However, this depends on how easily accessible the leak is. If you see that you need to open up the system to locate the leak, it is best to call for a professional. Clogged pipes and drains are also fairly common and a plunger often does the trick. Again, if you see that the system needs to be opened up, call for a professional plumber.

 

Shop online for plumbing tools for max benefits

The best place to buy plumbing tools is from an online store. This is for the simple reason that you can save a lot of money. Moreover, as you go through the list of items available, you will also learn about their usage. And of course, you can shop all you want from one place and there is no need for you to hunt in brick-and-mortar stores for a specific tool. You will find all tools in all sizes and much better prices online than in a store. Not still hesitate to go there if you need to discuss some boards with a dealer.

 

Which plumbing tools for which use?

 

When there is a leakage in a faucet, it often needs to be replaced. It could be repaired by a plumber but these products have their shelf lives. When you have to buy new faucets, make sure you opt for the best. Kohler Devonshire 4-7/16" Diverter Bath and WOODFORD MFG. 24P1/2 Wall Faucet are the best choices in this. You may also need to buy faucet accessories and you should consider Danze DA608620 N/A Replacement Plug for Single Handle Faucets and Kohler 1031659-B Replacement Screw for 8-18 x 1.50 Pan Head Tap.

 

Hoses are also important to keep handy because they can come in use anytime. Some of the best products include Kohler 1154836 Replacement Hose Assembly, John Guest PI011623S Male Connector and Moon American Fire Hose Adapter.

 

Do you know that you can also change pumps at home? Get a brand new pump like Zoeller Mighty Mate 1/3 HP Manual Submersible Sump Pump or Little Giant 2MDSC Pump with Magnetic Drive or TACO 005F2 Pump with Circulator and you can rest assured they will last for years.

 

You may also need compression fittings from time to time and make sure you consider Pex Brass Fittings 1/2 Inch Nominal Compression X 1/2 Inch Pex Trans Coupling Host and Watts Brass Compression Cap less insert.
