Christmas and New Year is a busy time that can be particularly testing for the plumbing systems in our homes, with compacted residue and frozen pipes likely to be an issue.
Because of this you’re likely to need to repair heating systems, dismantle or rebuild piping and flush drainage systems within your home and garden before too long. Here we list just some of the tools we offer for hire that will be essential to any successful plumbing job.
As a first port of call the Sweeps Brush can be used to remove any shallow build-ups or smelly obstructions in piping that are likely to be the cause of blockages. This simple tool is highly effective and may divert the need to dismantle pipes at surface level.
Stilsons Wrench 18″ – 36″
If you do need to delve into the piping system in order to identify blockage or drainage issues, you’re likely to encounter some connection fittings that are difficult to release or tighten. The Stilsons is a tough and durable hand wrench that will help to unlock tightened pipe connections without causing damage.
Pressure Test Pump
Our pressure test pumps are used to test for leaks in installations which are required to be leak proof, and will test systems up to 725 PSI. This tool is particularly useful for use in heating, compressed air and refrigeration systems and other small bore pipe installations.
Pipe Freezing Kit Electric
The pipe freezing kit is fitted with two high capacity freeze heads and supplied with pipe size reducers. The pipe freezing kit is ideal for industrial and commercial pipes and simply creates a small ice plug that will prevent water from entering the section of piping you are working on.
Drain Testing Bags – including Brass Pump
Available in varying sizes to suit pipe width, Drain Testing Airbags are an inflatable rubber bladder that when inflated can be used as an effective method of blocking off pipes during maintenance and similar applications.Get in touch
