Maple Ridge, BC – November 16, 2015 – Vancouver-based company, JJ’s Plumbing, is offering their advice for those that need some help in choosing the best plumbing tools to keep in their home. Although many plumbing problems require professional help, there are some that can be fixed quite easily with the right tools and help you save some money in the long run.

The most obvious plumbing tool to keep in your home is a plunger.  Even for those that know nothing about plumbing, plungers are extremely easy to use and can quickly fix a clog in your sink, tub or shower. At just $10 or less you can, potentially, save yourself anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars.  At about the same price, JJ’s Plumbing also recommends an Air Plunger, which forces compressed air through the water toward the clog.  With more air volume than a standard plunger, air plungersare able to remove very difficult clogs.

Tongue and groove pliers, also called “channellocks”, are another great investment that possesses great utility for non-plumbing needs. Using these tools, you have the ability to tighten, loosen, grab, pull and twist a variety of nuts and fittings at home.

Another essential plumbing tool is a snake, which is also called an auger. These tools can help you break up clogs and allow you to clear your drains without professional help. Although they are a bit more difficult to use than a plunger, once you get the hang of using them they are invaluable tools.

In addition to the tools mentioned above, there are many more that can help you in plumbing binds such as Teflon tape, a pipe wrench and various other common tools like hammers, screwdrivers and tape measurers.
