Tools a Plumber Should Have


Every job requires some type of tool set. If you work in an office your tools are a computer, stapler, phone, and various other office supplies. If you work in retail, your tools are a cash register or a price gun. This is no different for plumbers. If you are starting a plumbing business or you work as an independent contractor, there are a few tools that are standard for you to conduct your business properly. The types of tools that you’ll use will vary depending on the type of plumbing job you’re required to complete. But it’s better to have a tool and not need it than to need it and not have it.
