Knowing the right tools for any plumbing works is essential to solving plumbing issues that requires immediate solution. For most cases, it is still best to seek help from professional plumbers who can easily identify and fix the problem using these special tools:


Sump pump


A sump pump is a small-sized pumped that can fit into crawlspaces and basements

It can be used for HDB plumbing and Commercial plumbing to avoid flooding. Its primary purpose is to pump out water from pits that’s why they are usually found in sump pits that let the water flow out to the drains into the soil. Plumbers generally carry around portable sump pumps to resolve flooding issues.


Tongue-and-groove pliers


These pliers come in handy when replacing rusty pipes or installing bathroom accessories. These pliers have long handles, and angled jaws, and have different adjustment postures perfect for assembling and taking apart plumbing fixtures. It is quite similar to pipe wrenches that work best in pairs. One can be used for tightening or loosening fixtures while the other can be used for stabilizing pipes. For most types of plumbing jobs, you will find regular 10-inch pliers to be the best, but it still depends on the plumbing pipe fittings.




These are must-haves and they come in many shapes and sizes. In water heater replacement or shower installation, screwdrivers are essential for drilling and untangling screws.  You need screwdrivers for fixing tub spouts, overflow plates, faucet handles, and more.
