Plumbing Equipment

There are situations in which you should call a plumber because the plumbing situation has become critical and you just don’t know how to fix it. In the case of a severe plumbing problem, calling a professional is a very smart choice. Doing so can save you tons of money, property damage, and serious headaches. However, there are situations in which it is not necessary to call in a professional plumber. In the case of simple plumbing problems, it makes sense to do your own plumbing.

Do it yourself plumbing jobs require your own plumbing equipment. For starters make sure you have a decent plunger. Don’t purchase one of those cheap simple suction, standard type plungers you find in discount stores. They rarely, if ever, help to unclog anything and will frequently, however, succeed in splashing you right in your face. Instead, choose an accordion style plunger with a long funnel nose design. This type of plunger ensures a good seal and helps you to avoid unsanitary splashing. You can find this type of plunger in any store that sells quality-plumbing equipment.

Also, consider purchasing and putting together a basic repair kit with items such as adjusting ring wrench, seals, springs, an assortment of washers, closet auger, and sewer snake. These basic pieces of plumbing equipment should help you get through the type of plumbing repairs you could handle on your own. Make sure you read as much as you can about do it yourself plumbing repairs to ensure you know what you’re doing when the time comes.

Be sure to purchase goggles and gloves as part of your plumbing equipment. These things can help you stay safe from potentially harmful bacteria and chemical drain cleaners. Avoid using chemical drain cleaners before trying to unclog a drain mechanically. Chemical drain cleaners can cause a great deal of irritation to the skin and eyes, so avoid being splashed with it at all costs.
