As plumbing supplies is such a general term, it incorporates a whole variety of different items that can be used in a wide range of plumbing scenarios. We don’t limit ourselves to selling tools or the most popular essentials; instead we stock everything you could ever want... Water saving devices, treatment products for hard water, traps and wastes as well as connectors, valves, piping, brassware and consumables. This is just a small selection of what we have to offer. Whether you’re buying to complete a current job or buying in preparation for what’s around the corner, you should consider the following:0
DIY or Professional: Even if you have a small amount of plumbing knowledge, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to fix a large amount of regular plumbing problems that plague the house. However, you will of course need the correct tools for the job and this is where the cost comes in. You might find that hiring a professional to do the one job is of a similar price as the required tools. But this is where you need to make a judgement call and work out whether it’s worth investing in the tools which will allow you complete future jobs that crop up or if you want a one-off fix. For those that have a good amount of DIY common sense and some plumbing experience, it will likely be better to invest in some tools to save yourself a lot of money over time. DIY is also a convenient option as plumbers can be scarce or hard to find in times of need...
Plumbing Specific Tools: Whether you’re working in the bathroom or kitchen, there’s bound to be a lot of work that needs doing and most of these jobs will require tools to complete. However, before you start throwing money at a bunch of tools you might not even need, work out what tasks you need specific tools for. Many people make the mistake of buying extra tools for work that they can do with a general purpose tool that they already have lying around in the shed. Don’t think just because the job involves plumbing work that tools that have other functions don’t apply, because they do and in most circumstances they work just as efficiently as a dedicated tool for the purpose. Needle nose pliers, wrenches, socket sets, chisels and claw hammers are just a handful of tools that can be used in a plumbing environment. However, there are times when a dedicated plumbing tool will be required to complete a specific job. That won’t be a problem as we stock more than enough high quality tools that will be of use to you; plumbing torches, pressure gauges and wire locators are just a small selection of dedicated plumbing tools you will likely need at some point or another.
Individual vs. Kits: Although our range of tools and plumbing supplies are competitively priced and cheaper than many other retailers, it’s still a viable alternative to buy kits which save money when compared to individual items. With kits focusing on heating and plumbing, they may well be more expensive to buy initially, but they’ll save money in the long run as all tools are made use of.
