Tools Every Homeowner Should Have: Part 1
Plunger: A clogged sink or toilet is one of the most inconvenient household problems…fix it with a plunger. Two is always better than one – it’s best to have two plungers; one for the sink and one for the toilet.
Combination Wrench Set: The combination wrench is a multi-purpose tool with an open-end for tightening and loosening in small spaces and a box-end for a grip around nuts and bolts. Use these wrenches for fastening, turning, tightening and loosening things like pipes, pipe fittings, and nuts and bolts (also have an extra set of these on hand just in case).
Slip-Joint Pliers: These pliers are versatile because of their jaws, which feature both flat and curved areas for gripping many things. Use these to grab hold of a nail, nut, bolt, and much more.
Adjustable Wrench: An adjustable wrench is ideal when you need wrenches of different sizes. Whether you need it for plumbing, car fixing, or even furniture, this is the tool. Just make sure to screw the jaws all the way closed to avoid damaging a bolt or nut.
Caulking Gun: Caulking is a quick way to seal up gaps in tile, cracks in concrete, and leaks in certain types of piping. Caulking can provide thermal insulation and control water penetration. Note that caulk should be applied only to areas that are clean and dry.
