Choose Your Plunger

A plunger for the sink isn’t the same for the toilet due to its design for use. There are different types you can easily get in the market. You may come across some cheap plungers and consider going for one, but is it really worth it? Buying a good one despite its cost will serve you more. The ideal plunger has a handle of about 2 feet long and a thick rim with rubber at the end.

Before starting to plunge, place the rubber end of the tool over the sink drain hole to close other openings that connect to the drain you’re trying to unclog. For more firm fit, apply petroleum jelly to the rim of the rubber end. After which, fill the sink with water till it covers the plunger head.

Start Plunging

Vigorously pumping the plunger over the drain opening for about 15 minutes with forceful thrust exerting high water pressure which will dislodge the clog and push in through downward the pipe. You might need to do this several times before you notice results due to the nature of the clog. However, take caution with the pressure so as not to damage the sink fitting.
