Plumbers are essential when it comes to ensuring the structures of our homes are in working order. Plumbing issues tend to confront us spontaneously, and they can cause a lot of damage. The last thing you want is flooding in your home or awful odours, so it’s imperative that these problems are taken care of quickly. We at Plumbing Central can handle any issue, from blocked drains in Bondi to cracked pipes in Parramatta, and we will do so promptly.

In this article, we will discuss some of the tool’s plumbers use to take care of such problems.


One of the most basic yet effective tools in a plumber’s toolkit. Wrenches are mainly used to replace or repair broken faucets, but they are very versatile. They’re also commonly used to remove or fit pipes.

Measuring tape

Another key piece of equipment used by a plumber is the tape measure. They wouldn’t be able to successful lay down a working pipe system without correctly measuring every aspect of the system.

Teflon tape

Commonly referred to as plumber’s tape, Teflon tape is mainly used to tighten pipes and fix faucets. Preventing leaks is an essential part of plumbing, so Teflon tape is a key piece of equipment.


You’re likely very familiar with plungers, as they are a common household item. They’re an inexpensive piece of equipment used to unclog sinks, toilets, drains or baths. They remove blockages by sending a strong spurt of air through the drain and pushing the debris through the drain.

Drain auger’s

Also referred to as plumber’s snakes, these are another very common tool, due to their success. Augers involve a flexible, coiled-up metal wire that bends through the drain and either breaks down the clog to push it through the drain, or latches onto the blockage so it can be pulled out.

Jet blasters

Jet blasting is a relatively new method of plumbing, and one that is extremely successful. It involves a powerful hydro jet that blasts a powerful gush of water through the drain, breaking down any blockages from tree roots to built up grease and debris.

CCTV drain cameras

CCTV drain inspections have come a long way in recent times and are now an essential part of a quality plumber’s arsenal. These inspections allow plumbers to look inside the drain in real time and therefore go with the best solution to fix the problem.
