This crossbow-style ratcheting tubing bender from Uniweld will bend soft copper and aluminum tubing up to 90º. The ratcheting mechanism replaces the long lever arms of other benders, allowing you to make bends in tight spaces.

Designed to distort the tubing as little as possible to maintain optimal flow, the ratcheting handle drives the mandrel and the tubing against the side support blocks. As the mandrel continues forward, the side blocks rotate to keep their concave surface supporting the tubing.

If you read this site, you probably spend a lot of time wondering how they put things together, or better yet, how you’d take them apart. Take a tub drain, for instance: How do you remove the old one so you can replace it? Superior Tool makes a tub drain wrench like this dumbbell wrench to help you get the job done.

Ridgid designed this ONESTOP wrench to be the only wrench you need to install angle and straight stops, faucet nuts, washer/dryer/dishwasher legs, compression couplings, and other fittings. Actually, it’s two separate wrenches — the flare-style wrench stores in the open-end handle.

It’s not every day you need to cut a tailpiece extension to length while you’re under the sink, unless you’re a plumber. When you’re on your back under a cabinet sharing the space with nasty gunk, bugs, or other unidentifiable objects the homeowner left under there, you want to get out as soon as possible.

In comes the P-TEC 2550 — it can create a clean and straight cut on the thin-walled pipe used for sink tailpiece extensions in as few as six rotations. It works on polyethylene, polypropylene, and PVC both 1-1/4″ and 1-1/2″ OD. Plus, while it’s cutting it automatically deburrs and bevels the pipe.

First came dual flush toilets — a pretty ingenious idea for saving water — then about a year or so ago somebody came up with the idea of a dual flush conversion kit for your existing toilet but priced it so high your grandchildren wouldn’t live long enough to see any payback. Today we noticed MJSI sells a conversion kit that doesn’t cost much more than just replacing your toilet’s guts would anyway.

A Tee extractor is used to make branching connections on installed soft copper, hard copper, and aluminum pipe. This can be faster and easier than cutting the pipe to install a T-fitting, especially in hard to reach areas.

To make a Tee in an existing pipe, drill a hole in the pipe with the supplied self-centering bit. Insert the correct-sized extractor into the hole and twist the bell until it makes firm contact with the pipe. Turn the extractor to the left with the supplied ratchet to make the flare, and use the cam pincer make a ridge on the mating pipe to set the correct insert depth. Finally, mate the pipes and solder.

When you’re installing tile you want to cut holes for fixtures in the right place the first time. There are several ways to do this pretty accurately: measuring the location and transferring the measurements to the tile, placing the tile over a previous tile and using another tile to transfer the location of the hole, or making a template out of cardboard.

Compared to the above methods, Kapro’s 303 ceramic hole marker is just a faster reusable template. You can use it to copy the positions of pipe holes right onto tile. Slip the closed hole over a pipe stub and align the handle with the corner of the installed tile, tighten the screw lock, and transfer the measurement to your tile.

Unless you install radiant floor heating, you probably won’t need Malco’s foamboard stapler. It’s a stapler that allows you to fasten PEX tubing to an insulating foam board layer without getting on your knees or even bending over.

The stapler uses a leaf spring that automatically adjusts to the staple size, whether it’s 1-1/2″ or 2-1/2″ staples for 1″ and 2″ foamboard, respectively. The aluminum magazine holds multiple plastic welded strips of 25 staples and the fastening mechanism can cleanly separate the welds without jamming or deforming the staple. To deliver a staple, you just push down on the D-grip handle. The stapler’s concave head holds the PEX in place while you staple it.

Pricing starts around $230 for the stapler and pricing for the staples starts around $30 for a 300-pack.

We’ve covered faucet lights that change color with water temperature before, but what’s even cooler about Sylvania’s ECOlight is that it provides both temperature indication and shower illumination without batteries or electrical wiring — water pressure provides the power for this self-contained unit.

The ECOlight has an LED that glows blue when the water is cold and red when the water gets warmer.  It uses Sylvania’s high power golden dragon LED to provide light so you don’t need to turn on any extra lights on when you’re showering. There’s an on/off switch if you don’t want to use the light.
