Tips from the Pros: Selecting the Right Plunger

Every homeowner should have at least one plunger available. However, investing in multiple types and designs can offer some surprisingly great benefits. Our professional Los Angeles and Orange County plumbers at Adeedo! recommend using a plunger to dislodge substances such as hair, food or bathroom tissue from a stopped-up pipe.

What is a Cap Plunger?
The most common type of plunger is the cap variety. Cap plungers can be found in most local hardware stores and grocery markets. They traditionally entail a sturdy wooden stick that screws into a heavy rubber cap.

 

What is a Flange Plunger?
A flange plunger is similar to a cap plunger, though typically sells at a higher price point. Flange plungers are designed differently than cap plungers, and feature a rubber cap with an extension that fits precisely in the drain’s opening. The flange plunger’s more robust construction provides greater force and extra pressure to serve in dislodging especially difficult stoppages. Because the tip can damage a delicate bathtub or sink drain, our plumbers generally maintain that a flange plunger is more suitable for stopped-up toilets rather than sinks.
