What Are the Most Popular Residential Plumbing Tools?

We all want to save money, especially when it comes to residential plumbing, but that doesn't mean we should compromise on cheap devices and fixtures. But if you buy the best quality materials and plumbing tools to get the job done by yourself, then you can save a lot of money.
Here are some popular tools for plumbing used frequently by professional LA Plumbers and which you can buy at your local hardware store.
1. The plunger: most homeowners use this device to clear clogs in sinks and tubs. Use a standard or a flange plunger, depending on the situation at hand.
2. Along with this you would also need to pick up a pipe wrench, which should be flexible enough to get it worked around for better results. With this device you can manipulate and twist the piping by getting the nuts and bolts undone in no time.
3. Amongst plumbing tools one would also need a tubing cutter, which rotates along the pipe with delicacy and precision, while not bending the pipe or breaking it in the course of the process.
4. An auger is also important to have around the house. This device is a cable made of flexible steel and as it goes down the pipe, it can be rotated with the help of the handle which it is attached to it, thus clearing the blockage within.
5. Teflon tape or PTFE, which is strong and has a silky feel for sealing joints in the pipes.
It's extremely handy to have these tools at home. After you've used them once or twice you'll be an expert at tackling residential plumbing system problems. However, if you're uncertain about a specific tool or problem, do not hesitate to contact the experts at Plumbers Los Angeles. Sometimes it is better to pay more to ensure that your plumbing problem is handled professionally.
