    Those wide jaw monument adjustable spanners are damn handy. I bought one of the smaller ones and it fits nuts that you normally need a spanner that's three times the length. They're also much thinner than normal adjustable jaws and they taper down to a few millimeters at the tips so you really can get them places you'd otherwise have no chance of getting an adjustable.

    Bacho adjustables, knipex grips,wera screwdrivers and spanners! Bacho pipeslices i find decent...mixed reviews but cant stand the kopex ones which just spiral the pipe.

    What do you reckon are the best spanners / wrenches for pump valve unions.

    Replacing pumps is where you could definitely do with a 3rd hand - that's if you ain't got an apprentice :)

    Monument pump spanner is very good.
    So much leverage, you have to be careful not to overdo tightening.
    It is a very long spanner though and can be cumbersome in tight spots.
