How to Use a Plunger

A plunger can be your best friend and can be the easiest way to unclog a drain. A plunger uses suction to alternately push and pull the clog within the pipe until the force dislodges the blockage. A common plunger has a wooden broomstick like handle that attaches to a cup shaped piece of rubber.

Here's the procedure to use a plunger…

  1. Remove the sink stopper.

  2. Pour boiling water down the sink to breakup the clog as much as possible.

  3. Fill the sink up with enough tap water to cover the rubber portion of a plunger to assure good suction.

  4. Place the plunger over the drain and vigorously push down and pull up several times.
