We've mentioned this topic on our social media pages a number of times in the past, but it's about time we "plunge" into it further and "flush" out any additional questions you might have. We are talking of course about the two different types of plungers you should have in your home.
Many people don't realize that there are two types for two different purposes. And unfortunately, home improvement stores confuse the matter my selling plungers that don't really do the job.
The first type of plunger is the one you are more likely familiar with. This is the one that looks like a suction cup with a handle sticking out of it. This type of plunger is designed for clearing a sink or tub. While these come in multiple sizes, many people mistakenly buy the larger versions thinking they are for toilets.
This plunger, sold at Home Depot for $2.98, has no flange and is designed for sinks and tubs.This plunger, sold at Home Depot for $5.99, includes a flange which creates a positive seal inside a toilet drain.
