Invest in a set of pipe wrenches, including both straight and offset models. These are essential for gripping and turning pipes and fittings securely. Also, ensure you have a selection of adjustable wrenches in different sizes for tightening and loosening nuts, bolts, and fittings. Include pipe cutters for cutting various types of pipes cleanly and accurately.

Stock up on essential plumbing supplies like pipe fittings, couplings, connectors, gaskets, washers, and plumbing tape. In addition, organize your tools in a sturdy toolbox or tool bag for easy transport and accessibility on job sites. Most importantly, don’t forget your safety gear. Ensure you have personal protective equipment including gloves, safety glasses, ear protection, and appropriate clothing for working in potentially hazardous environments.

Have repair kits for common plumbing fixtures and components, such as faucet repair kits, toilet repair kits, and pipe repair kits. Keep a selection of common plumbing fixtures for repair and replacement jobs. Lastly, ensure you have a drain auger or snake for clearing stubborn clogs.
