Must-Have Tools for the Lake Havasu Homeowner

When you own your home, things are going to break. Now that you are a Lake Havasu homeowner, you can no longer call the landlord to take care of these issues. So, unless you want to spend your money on visits from a neighborhood handyman, you’re going to need to fix at least some of them yourself. Fortunately, YouTube offers a "how to" video on just about every household chore you need to tackle. Luckily, you don’t need an arsenal of tools to handle most home maintenance fixes. These five tools should cover most of a Lake Havasu homeowner's basic projects.

At some point, every Lake Havasu homeowner must perform maintenance on their home. These five

Must-Have Tools for the Lake Havasu Homeowner

Cordless Drill

A cordless drill is a must-have for installing cabinets, drawer pulls, hinges, picture frames, shelves and hooks, and more. Whether it’s for do-it-yourself projects or repairs, you’ll use your cordless drill just about every month. Just make sure to place it back on its charging station when done so it will be ready to go for that next project.

Drain Cleaners

Shower and bathroom sink drains are susceptible to clogs because of the daily buildup of hair and whisker clippings. Using chemical clog removers like Drano can be expensive. Plus, you deal with that lingering chemical scent. Ugh! Instead, buy some plastic drain cleaners that reach into the drain to pull out the clog of hair and gunk that inevitably builds up. You can purchase them on Amazon or at a local hardware store for a low price.


No matter how careful you are, spills and accidents will happen. Some tasks require something stronger than paper towels or a standard vacuum. (Pet messes, broken glass, etc.) Trust me. That shop-vac comes in handy for Lake Havasu homeowners more often than you might think.


While you might not need to mow your lawn in Lake Havasu, those bushes and hedges need trimming every so often. Even the minimum amount of care for your landscaping requires some loppers to remove damaged branches, vines, thick weeds, and any other unruly plants in your yard.


You need something a little more powerful than your iPhone flashlight when trying to get to those dark areas of your Havasu property. Best Reviews Guide put together their 10 Best Powerful Flashlights to help you find the one that works best for your needs.
