DIY Plumber in Ireland

If you are planning to be a DIY Plumber, here are few tools that may be of use to you.

Wrenches: There are a number of different types of wrenches, but two major types that will serve you well are an adjustable wrench and a pipe wrench.

Adjustable Wrench: Is a type of wrench with an adjustable jaw that adapts the device to different sized bits and pieces. When working with such a wrench, be sure to have the force applied against the set jaw.

Pipe Wrench: Is a type of wrench used for clutching and turning pipes. The adjustable jaw on a pipe wrench is intended for this reason. Bigger pipe wrenches are appropriate for bigger pipes. Again, similar to the adjustable wrench, when working with such a wrench, be sure to have the force applied against the set jaw.

Pliers: It is advised that a plumber should have a number of different pliers such as: Locking Pliers and Rib-joint Pliers.
Screwdriver: Screwdrivers are a versatile tool. Whether it is for assembling or dissembling appliances, screwdrivers are always handy to have close by. There are different sizes and kinds of screwdrivers and it is advised that you have a range of each standard.

Pipe Cutters: Pipe cutters are often needed and it is a good idea to have different types also. Pipe cutters can be used to slice both steel and copper pipes.

Drain Clearing Equipment: When it comes to drains that are clogged, drain clearing tools are essential. Drain clearing tools consist of toilet plungers, sink plungers drain augers and toilet augers, etc.

These devices will aid you when DIY plumbing. There are plenty more but these should help you get started. If you need a plumbing job done, feel free to post your job on to get a number of quotes.

All the Best,
