Are you concerned that you may not be prepared should an emergency arise in your home? While professional service is necessary to handle any major plumbing problems in your home, it can be helpful to know what type of equipment you should keep on hand in the event that something does go wrong with your plumbing. At Basnett Plumbing, we are committed to informing our customers about their plumbing systems, and that includes making sure they know what equipment they should keep on hand. In today’s post, the Littleton plumbing experts here would like to help you assemble a starter plumbing toolkit.
- Plunger: Make sure that you have a good plunger at your disposal. It’s best to pay slightly more at a good hardware store, than to be frustrated at a cheap model’s inability to handle even the most minor of clogs. These can often be used to unclog drains as well as the toilet.
- Auger: An auger is a flexible hose that has a variety of attachments on its end. It is inserted into the sink or toilet to dislodge stubborn clogs and blockages that are preventing normal operation. But be careful with the use of your auger. There are different augers for different applications, and using the wrong attachment can actually cause significant damage to your plumbing system that can result in high repair costs.
- The phone number of a good plumber: While some homeowners are more enthusiastic about approaching their plumbing system, everyone needs the phone number of a good plumber. Make sure you keep yours in a place within easy reach in case something goes wrong with you plumbing. This is an essential part of your plumbing equipment.
