Many home repair tools can be used for plumbing fixes but it is to be noted that all plumbing tools are specialized tools. There are different types of tools designed for specific purposes. Plumbing tools are specialized tools that fit the job. For example, if you have a handle puller to pull tub , then you must also have a box end or hollow-core socket wrench.
