Ok, so you're not a plumber, but can you identify the tools of the plumbing trade? Take this quiz to find out.
Even if you're not a professional plumber, you've probably had to do a bit of DIY plumbing repair from time to time. After all, sometimes just giggling the handle on the toilet just isn't enough. If you've got to do a quick plumbing repair, knowing which tool to use is critical to getting the job done fast and right. You might know a wrench from a hammer, but do you know these common plumbing tools?
Although most plumbing repairs are pretty basic and use basic tools, some other repairs can be quite complicated, calling for more specialized tools. For instance, do you know what an auger is? It's a specialized tool used by plumbers to clear drains. There are augers for kitchen and bathroom drains, augers for toilets, and even super duper augers for sewer lines. Many homeowners include a basic hand auger in their arsenal of DIY plumbing tools, but if you need something bigger, you might be able to rent one at your local hardware store.
How well do you think you know these plumbing tools? Let's find out.
