Plumbing - Which tools do I need?
Every DIY enthusiast needs to
have certain plumbing supplies in order to do necessary projects in the
home. It is not always possible to predict when a project will arise.
Therefore, it is a great idea to have certain plumbing tools on hand
for such occasions, as they can save you both time and money. The
following are a series of tools that you should own:
Adjustable wrenches are
available in many different bolt sizes as well as fittings and nuts.
Although they are many different sizes on the market, the average DIY
plumbing project will require only a 12’ wrench. Keep in mind that you
want to exert any force on the fixed jaw instead of the adjustable jaw.
The pipe wrench is another
essential asset and is required for gripping and rotating threaded
pipes and fittings. These wrenches, similar to adjustable wrenches, are
available in different sizes and are made so that they can be fitted to
meet the requirements of a project. As with the adjustable wrench, the
force should be applied against the fixed instead of the adjustable jaw
in order to avoid damage.
These pliers can be used in
many different types of projects such as the tightening of pipes,
fittings, and nuts which is required for the correction of pipe leaks.
These pliers are able to be adjusted by adjusting the pivot into
different positions so that objects can be gripped between the pliers.
These types of pliers are
wonderful for projects that necessitate clamping. They can be used in
order to lock bolts and pipes and are also adjustable through screws
that are on the handle.
The majority of homeowners
already have screwdrivers since they are able to be used for limitless
projects. For projects which require the disassembling of appliances or
the replacement of faucets, a screwdriver is a nonnegotiable asset. The
best screwdriver option is the 4-in-1 screwdriver that is able to be
used for many different projects. You should ensure that the
screwdriver’s head is closely matched to size of the screw that you are
using the screwdriver on. If they are not closely matched, either the
screwdriver or the screw may become damaged.
Several types of pipe cutters
are also an essential asset. Varying types of cutters are able to cut
copper, as well as various other materials such as rigid plastic or
flexible tubing which is used in sprinkle pipes.
This is an integral part of
any household project, including those pertaining to plumbing. The most
versatile type of tape is a 25 foot measuring tape that is made of
steel. Steel tapes are the best choice as they do not need to be
supported when placed further away.
Drains are liable to get
clogged at any time. Because of this, it is always a good idea to
possess tools that will help to unclog drains such as augers or the
sink plunger shown.
