Important Plumbing ToolsIf you are handy and enjoy taking care of your own home repairs, you must have the right tools. This will help you ensure the job gets done correctly and can save you time, as well.

By knowing some of the most necessary tools to help you if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, this is sure to come in handy for you.

Basin Wrench

Many of the plumbing problems you may be faced with will be in the kitchen or bathroom sink. You will want to have a basin wrench, also referred to a sink wrench, in your toolbox. This wrench works to loosen or tighten fittings that aren’t that easy to get to for you.

A basin wrench is ideal to help you switch out an old faucet for a new one. Additionally, there are a number of other plumbing tasks you can use this too for and this makes it imperative to have this item on hand!


Most any handyman you meet knows what pliers are, and these are sure to be one of the most important tools for a do-it-yourselfer to have when tackling plumbing jobs. This item can help you deal with a stubborn pipe and help to get it removed with greater ease when necessary. It’s a great idea to have several sizes of pliers ready for you to use.


It may be necessary for you to cut pipes or tear into other hard materials to get the plumbing job done. A hacksaw is light-weight and is capable of cutting into most any type of material.
