What Plunger Should I Buy

Most homeowners will deal with a clogged drain at least once in their lifetime. It's one of the most common household issues. Some of these clogs will be small and not require the need of a trained technician. For a simple drain, a plunger will usually do the trick. When purchasing a plunger, there are three types to consider: flat plunger, toilet flange plunger, and accordion plunger. Which one is the right choice for your home?

Flat Plunger (AKA Common Sink Plunger): When you think of a plunger, this is most likely the kind you imagine. This type of plunger is best on kitchen sinks, bathtubs, and bathroom sinks. 

Toilet Flange Plunger: This type of plunger is similar to a flat plunger due to its cup feature. However, this one also has a soft rubber flap folding from inside the cup. This feature allows the plunger to fit over a toilet drain and form the necessary suction. While the word toilet is in the name, this plunger's flexibility allows it to fit on almost any drain, making it the best overall. 

Accordion Plunger: This type of plunger is less common, and it's typically used on toilets. Many people report this to be a more powerful plunger, but it's hard to use, and the plastic material may scratch your toilet surface. 

While a plunger is a great tool to have on hand for a quick fix, it can never replace the expertise of a plumber in Manhattan. If you are constantly using your plunger to relieve drains, it's time to give us a call. Our trained professionals will locate the issue's source and fix the root problem to avoid future clogs.
