Do you have a clogged toilet? A clogged drain? Or just curious about how to use a plunger? Well, using a plunger is very simple and easy. But before we get there I just want to say that a plunger is a very helpful, effective, and useful tool. It can not only be used for clogged toilets or drains, but a plunger also has a lot of uses too. For example, do you have a dent in your car? And you want it to be fixed but don’t have the budget? Well, a plunger would be a great and effective tool for that problem.
But a plunger can only help you with dents depending on the situation, if your car is badly dented it may not fully fix it. Now, let’s get on how to use a plunger when fixing a dent, first of all, heat about a liter of water, when it has reached to the boiling point, pour the boiling hot water in the dent. After pouring the hot water, grab you plunger and start plunging the dent. Make sure that the plunger is situated in the middle, or the center of the dent for greater outcomes.
If you have no means of boiling water, you can use a hair dryer or better if you have a heat gun. Now, enough of the plunger as a tool for fixing a car dent. Let’s talk about the plunger again itself. Don’t you know that there are different types of plungers? And each has their own purpose.
First is the cup plunger, this is most common plungers we see in cartoons, movies and in the market. A cup plunger is usually made of a wooden handle and a rubber cup. This type of plunger is also called a sink plunger because mainly, its purpose is for a clogged sink, it is made for flat surfaces but still effective when you use it for the toilet.
Next is the flange plunger or the toilet plunger, this plunger is the one used for toilets. Last is the accordion plunger the accordion plunger is made mainly for clogged toilets. This plunger is made of hard plastic unlike the other two that is made of rubber and wood. The accordion plunger gives more force and effectivity. Well, now you know the types of plungers, let now get on to how to use a plunger.
We recommend that you only use this plunger for the sink or shower drains since it is made for flat surfaces. If you are going to use this for the sink, don’t use this with the toilet.
For the flange plunger, you can use this plunger for the toilet, sink, tubs and other drains, this plunger has a cup that can be inserted into the toilet bowl for better suction. We don’t recommend on using this with the sink too as it can be unsanitary.
The accordion plunger is just like the flange plunger, but this plunger is only used for toilets, this plunger is bigger and longer and much more effective than any other plungers. It also has a cup that fits into the toilet for better suction. First, insert the plunger into that toilet and plunge it up. By the way, more force is needed when using this plunger since it is bigger and made of hard plastic.
