Know Your Plungers

Every house will end up with a clog at some point. We recommend you invest in a plunger to have on hand, should a clogging situation present itself. Did you know that there are different types of plungers? If you are trying to unclog a sink, toilet or shower it is important to use the correct plunger for the job. In this video Master Plumber, Doug Rose, explains the different plungers and what drain they are best suited for.

The Toilet Plunger– A toilet plunger has an extra rubber piece on the bottom (flange). When you place it inside the toilet hole it creates a perfect seal.

The Sink Plunger– A sink plunger has a rubber cup at the end. These work best on sinks and basins with a flat surface.

If you find that your plunger isn’t taking care of the clog, or you are having frequent clogs, there may be a bigger plumbing issue.
