What is the difference between water pump pliers and plumber's grips?
The term 'grips' can be applied to many different hand tools, and so can be confusing. For instance, pipe grip pliers are very similar, but often have a differently shaped head with smooth teeth. Though water pump pliers are very versatile with wide applications in plumbing and maintenance, they are designed specifically for packed glands on water pumps. Be sure to pay careful attention to the head when purchasing grips, to be assured they are suitable for your needs.
