    Re: What is the BEST plunger

    I've used them 1000's of times but dont know what each is called.

    I like the traditional red rubber plungers for sinks and tubs.

    I like the black rubber plungers with the cup extension for commodes.

    I dont like plastic accordion type plungers.

              I prefer the Power Plunger 520 by Continental Manufacturing.

                What's wrong with the accordion type plunger?

                  Can't play any songs on them!
                  Not flexible enough to get a good seal around the bowl.
                  Don't smile when your plunging.

                      Call me crazy,

                      I will not use a plunger in the customers house...

                      When they have to call a plumber typically they do not want to be made the fool.

                      When I get called in there is generally a well used plunger laying close by, I feel that they called me because I have a better mouse trap, Stool Auger, and the use of this tool justifies the expense of my time with the customer. I have always attributed my success to the fact I never make my customers feel less intelligent than myself, even the renters. I'm sure I'll get slammed for this, but I feel that there is no place for a plunger in our tool arsenal.

                          That's thoughtful. You could leave a new Power Plunger , explaining It's a better design and may save them a service call next time.

                            the style mark posted is the one that works for me 99% of the time. fits a toilet perfectly and if needed a shower drain, basket strainer, disposal.

                            there is nothing wrong with a plunger to open a paper stoppage in a toilet.

                            when you see a homeowners snake or auger next to the plugged up toilet, sink, do you not use your snake or auger because you feel that will embarrass them? of course not.

                            i tell them they need a better plunger and tell them where to get them.

                            i've never had a customer upset with me using a plunger. in fact they love it. they just got a cheap lesson for future stoppages.

                            what i don't use is a blow bag inside of a home. only times i use them are on an outside area drain.
