The plunger, to be precise. Without it, no household is complete. It’s much worse when you’re visiting a buddy and accidentally plug up their commode.
There are a number of us who have gone through this humiliating experience, which is made even worse when you can’t find a plunger to remove all evidence that the slaughter ever happened.
Nobody wants to have to borrow a plunger from a buddy.
Plungers may have a dirty job, but they are highly practical and can clear a blockage approximately 90% of the time with just a few thrusts.
Did you know there are several different varieties of plungers?
We’ve put together some facts to assist you in making an informed decision:
Difficulties with plungers
The cup plunger and the flange plunger are the two most common plunger kinds.
Because each one serves a different role than its counterpart, it’s essential to have at least one of each in your home.
The Cup Plunger:
Are you familiar with the plunger that has a wooden handle and a rubber cup-like end? This is the plunger for the cup.
This plunger may function to clear a clog in your toilet, but it is unlikely to perform as well as you had hoped.
The reason for this is that the cup plunger has the best suction on flat surfaces, which makes it less than optimal for the curved surface of most toilets.
When the emergency isn’t in the toilet, but rather in the sink, bathtub, or shower, the cup plunger comes in handy.
The Flange is a type of flange.
This sort of plunger is far more effective in the toilet. It has a rubber ring around the outside of the cup.
As a result, when the flange is pushed into the toilet’s drain, it can provide a stronger hold and suction.
The extra ring really helps to lock in the air, increasing the power of each thrust and forcing the clog to release.
If this is the only plunger you have, you can try to clear a sink or tub drain by simply pulling the extra rubber ring back into the plunger’s cup before plunging.
What is the best technique to plunge a toilet?
There must be enough water to completely submerge the plunger. If there isn’t enough water for complete submersion, as long as the rim of the plunger cup is covered, you should be fine.
A clogged toilet or sink might be inconvenient, but fortunately, when we have the correct instrument on hand for the job, we can solve the problem with ease. If you’ve tried a plunger to no avail and the blockage persists, don’t hesitate to contact us!
