Plumbing Tools Every Homeowner Should Have

March 31, 2023 | Blog

Finding the right tools for all the new situations you’ll face can be frustrating when you’re moving out or buying your first home. Plumbing problems are never fun to deal with in a new place, but it doesn’t mean it has to be difficult to deal with. Having the right tools on hand can help solve your plumbing problems fast — from your kitchen to your bathroom.

At Hi-Tech Plumbing & Leak Detect in Edmond, Oklahoma, we want you to be prepared for any emergency concerning plumbing. Leaks can become much more significant issues over time, so having the tools to address them can be great for your pipes’ health and keeping your plumbing systems up-to-date! Keeping these four tools in mind and knowing what to invest in beforehand can greatly help your house.

Tool 1: A Toilet Plunger

There is nothing worse than having a clogged toilet! Blockages in your toilet can cause significant water damage to your pipes and create an unsanitary environment. A plunger is one of the most important things you can have in your house because of how easily it can remove this problem!

Plungers use suction to dislodge surface-level blockages in your toilet, which will get the water running and allow your toilet to drain water properly. Having one on hand provides a quick solution in times of dire need.

Tool 2: A Plumbing Snake

While plungers can address surface-level clogs in toilets, a snake can assist in deep blockages that can occur over time. While plungers use suction to unclog, snakes can break up grime and debris that will occur deep in pipes, addressing the problem at its roots.

While plumbing snakes are helpful, it can be beneficial to learn how to use one by a trained professional. These tools are strong enough to damage pipes if misused. However, they’re instrumental if you need a quick fix to a longstanding issue.

Tool 3: An Adjustable Wrench

While a wrench can be used in almost every area of your house, it’s a fantastic plumbing tool. In your system, there are going to be a variety of different sizes of nuts and bolts. Having one with adjustable settings means you’ll be prepared for all kinds, no matter the situation!

These wrenches are often used for tightening or loosening the connections between the pipes, removing old fixtures and installing new fixtures. These can be especially useful if you would like to replace your appliances or fix leaks caused by bad connections.

How Do I Find Useful Plumbing Tools?

Finding useful tools for plumbing issues starts with understanding what plumbing problems that you may run into. Investing in a plumbing company to tell you the potential problems that your plumbing may have in the future means that you can find the type of tools that you need.

Another great place to look is in commercial stores dedicated to home improvement. Many of these stores have magazines with starter packs for moving into new areas and explanations of what each tool is used for.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Tea L.

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
