(Last Updated On: January 12, 2018)

Whether you are trying to fix a sump pump or a drain, you may need tools like a plumbing snake or other proper plumbing tools that can help you repair all your plumbing problems should you want to attempt them yourself. However, not all plumbing issues are easy, so you may need to look for a professional plumber instead. In this article, find out about our most recommended handy tools that you need for DIY plumbing jobs.

  • Plumbing snake

Plumbing snake is a handy item for when the choke is too stubborn for the plunger. A plumbing snake is used to insert into tight places where the choke is occurring. When used with effectively, it will chip away at the choke allowing the choke-age to be solve.

  • Hacksaw

A multipurpose saw, it can effectively cut through nuts, bolts, screws, hardware and plastic or metal pipe. Ensure that for difficult cuts, the blade has enough tension in its frame. In difficult spots, use a piece of cloth to wrap an end of the loose blade to make a temporary handle for slipping in the blade and making the cut. It is a good idea to keep some extra blades in your kit, so that work continues unabated even if a blade breaks.

  • Adjustable Wrench

Any decent plumbing company would always have an adjustable wrench with them. It is a versatile piece of equipment that is needed by plumbing professionals for plumbing supply lines, compression fittings or any other plumbing component consisting of hex-shaped nuts. It is a good idea to buy these in two sizes.

  • Tongue-and-Groove Pliers

These types of pliers are often seen in the hands of plumbers for loosening, tightening, holding, twisting, pulling or grabbing anything while they try to fix the plumbing pipes. It is wise to buy these in two sizes as well. Fun fact: these pliers are often referred to as ‘Channellocks’, the brand name for them.

  • Plunger

It is an indispensable piece of equipment that works with drain cleaner, for dealing with clogs from floor drains, showers, toilets, tubs and sinks. You have to press down while using a plunger in a toilet, make a tough seal in the area surrounding your drain and then pull up. This will make the clog come out due to vacuum pressure and not push down deeper.
