Since drain clogs are so common a plunger can come in quite handy in just about every home. That being said, plungers are often overlooked and under used for clearing drain clogs.
To get the most out of a plunger there are some things you should know:
- Which plunger to use - pick the right plunger for the clog location.
- How to use it - see how to use a plunger and read fixture specific tips for how to use a plunger.
Plungers are great at clearing local clogs only but having the right plunger and using it correctly can help make it a more useful plumbing tool.
