When carrying out any plumbing repair or service, there will be some essential accessories in the engineer’s kit, no matter what the problem is that they are working on.
Wrenches - for pipes or basins.
Spanners - because there are many plumbing systems and many sizes of fitting, adjustable tools are essential.
Cutters - for water pipes of all materials and sizes, as well as waste pipes.
Pipe benders - some metal pipes can be bent to follow a particular route, saving money, time and materials.
Blowtorch - pipes and fittings from an end feed system will need heating in order to make a soldered connection. Additional accessories needed for these soldered joints include:
- Wire wool or brush
- Rags - some of them wet
- Safety eyewear
- Fire blanket or barrier
- Fire extinguisher
Without proper consideration, a plumber could have a van full of tools and accessories, yet still find they don’t have the right item for a repair or service.
The list of plumbing accessories is probably infinite, but her are few other essentials which might not have been considered:
Maintenance hole (or manhole) cover lifters - some covers have been down so long they will need specialist tools to lift them.
Plunger, also known as a plumber’s helper - for helping shift those unwelcome blockages in the plumbing system.
Drain or sewer rods - a series of rods which screw together to send down a blocked drain or sewer to clear blockages.
