Stock Your Truck With These 7 Residential Plumbing Parts
Owning a home usually means an eventual plumbing problem, and when a homeowner calls a plumber, they expect the professional will show up with the necessary plumbing fittings and supply to make required repairs.
While it’s not feasible for a plumber to stock all plumbing parts in their service truck, he or she can have an assortment of plumbing fittings on hand that will allow for prompt repairs. Homeowners commonly call on a plumber to fix:
- Leaky faucets and pipes
- Drips around water lines
- Heating and air conditioning problems
Plumbers should always stock the following 7 residential plumbing parts:
①A Variety of Adaptors and Nipples
You’ll need male-female adaptors and some of the more popular nipple sizes used to tie a pipe into home appliances. Have these on hand so you don’t have to make a run to a plumbing supply store in the middle of a job. Buy Now
Fixing water leaks quickly, especially if it’s an after-hours call, means stopping the flow of water, either hot or cold. With a supply of 1/2 and 3/4 inch barb fittings in both plastic and brass, you’ll be able to do just that.
Specialty PEX fittings are a necessity for modern plumbers, and one of the most valuable fittings available is the standard ECO BRONZEⓇ lead-free crimp tee in both 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch sizes. With the wide variety of PEX lines used in homes, the standard tee is an adaptable fitting for plumbing repairs. Buy Now

⑥Couplings and Unions
Handfuls of couplings and unions in a variety of sizes will fill a standard drawer in your mobile toolbox so determining the number and the sizes of materials is completely up to you. However, you need to have the right parts to make repairs to water heaters and to bypass damaged lines with new routings. Buy Now
