Plumbers also have to have wrenches. There’s a wide variety of wrenches for different purposes. First is the basin tool. This is used for sink and faucet nuts. The basin wrench should have a long handle to reduce the difficulty of reaching under the sink. The preferred choice is one that can adjust between about 10 and 17 inches. Another type is the pipe wrench. The pipe wrench has a larger capacity than a basin wrench. It is used for tightening and loosening pipes and nuts that are clogged. It is important to choose a strong, shatter-proof wrench. Although most people would prefer to use aluminum wrenches for their tasks, it is okay to use steel wrenches if they are not too difficult. The adjustable wrench, another type of wrench, is also available. This wrench was used for hex shaped nuts and is highly versatile. You should look for this wrench with a secure locking mechanism to prevent the nuts or bolts from slipping when you grip it. Finally, the tubing cutter. It is used primarily to cut and polish copper pipes. To make cutting easier, look for a tubing cutter that has a smooth retractable head.
