Default Service truck stock list

Does anyone have a stock list for their service truck (s) that they would like to share? Thanks

These days I carry just the basic stuff. Copper pipe and fittings 1/2" to 1", Tubular brass 1 1/2" and 1 1/4" , brass plugs 1 1/2" to 6" two sump pumps and an ejector pump. Everything else is bought on as needed basis.

All I keep on the truck is a big jar of plumber's putty. I use it to fix everything. Leaky faucet, burst waterline, runny toilet? Nothing putty can't fix!

I think there is a broad variation depending on where and what you do. How many pvc traps and pex fittings would New York put in a truck? I can see the benefit ..especially with a larger op.

Talking a basic list is never enough

a basic list is never enough,

in time you tend to accumulate extra inventory

If you added up everything that I have carried around in my truck for the last 150,000 miles, .....down to the cost of every plug, elbow,, ect. . it would probably come to about $25,000... then you could turn the truck upside down and shake out another 1500 dollars of stuff stuck in the doors,,,

when in the field, you never know when you
will run across a Crane Dial Ease faucet that needs new stems..

I just stock the truck to the gills,
and carry it all around with you till
that day when you really neeed it...

then it pays for itself 1000 times over
on some cold Satruday night...

if you can find it

MIGHTY PUTTY!
can't believe I am the first to suggest it here!


Seriously though, it is trial and error, what works here probably won't work there. Too many variables.

A 5 gallon bucket comes in pretty handy sometimes. I learned that from Dunbar. Linger Longer.
