Plumbing may seem like an easy task, and you may attempt fixing plumbing issues like leaks and choke to save money from paying a professional plumber. However, not all issues are easy to fix, so you may need the help of a plumber in Singapore to do it for you. Nevertheless, here’s a list of our most recommended tools for DIY plumbing jobs.
- Plumbing snake
When fixing a toilet choke, sometimes a plunger alone can’t solve it. Plumbing snake is a convenient tool for declogging because it can fit into tight spaces. If used correctly, it can easily clear toilet bowl choke without any trouble.
Hacksaw is a versatile tool for cutting through nuts, bolts, screws, and hardware, plastic or metal pipes. Whether it’s for a pipe replacement or a shower installation, having a hacksaw can make the job easy. To use it effectively, make sure 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 also a good idea to keep some extra blades in your kit, so that you can continue working if a blade breaks.
- Adjustable Wrench
An adjustable wrench is your best friend when it comes to residential plumbing emergencies. It is a multipurpose tool commonly used for plumbing works such as plumbing supply lines, compression fittings or any other plumbing component consisting of hex-shaped nuts. It is a good idea to buy this in two sizes.
- Tongue-and-Groove Pliers
Plumbers commonly use these pliers for loosening, tightening, holding, twisting, pulling or grabbing hardware used in pipe installation, tap repair, and other plumbing services. It is advisable to buy these in two sizes as well.
A plunger is an indispensable piece of equipment that works best with clogs. Whether you need it for clearing floor trap or sink choke, this tool is simple and easy to use. You just have to press the plunger down and make sure that it seals with the drain before pulling it back up. The vacuum pressure created using the plunger will help the clog to resurface.
