When Is It Best to Use a Plunger?

The plunger is one of the most valuable tools that you can use in your home. We at Lasiter and Lasiter Plumbing have used plungers for years. But you will have to observe for how you can get a plunger ready for your use.

We at Lasiter and Lasiter Plumbing can help you with getting a plunger ready for your toilet, especially if you have a severe clog that is very persistent. But there’s a need to look carefully at what’s going on when getting a plunger ready.

How Does the Water Drain?

You might notice cases where the water drains slowly. This includes instances where the toilet doesn’t flow after you flush. The issue can be a real concern, especially since you’d have to wait for a little extra to use the toilet once again.

A plunger may help when you’ve got a clog that is impacting your water line to where the water isn’t draining well. You can reach us for help if you have this concern.

What About Total Clogs?

There are often when a total clog might develop in a toilet. This is where nothing is going down at all. This is a significant threat that can make it to where the bathroom can overflow.

 It could be dangerous to get a plunger with the toilet paper possibly being unsanitary. Having a professional to help you with safely clearing out a total clog with a plunger or other related tool would be the best thing to do when keeping your toilet under control.

Do You Even Know How to Use a Plunger?

The effort that goes into using a plunger can be a challenge. Our experts at Lasiter and Lasiter Plumbing understand what it takes to get a plunger working. But you need to ensure your plunger is used well enough and without a struggle.

You would have to keep the plunger perfectly vertical over the toilet bowl. This includes ensuring the plunger is not going to stay intact or stuck. Using the plunger at an angle would reduce the amount of leverage that one has over the clog, thus making it harder for the clog to be cleaned out.

What About Other Places?

Have you considered how a toilet isn’t the only thing that you could use a plunger for? You can get a plunger ready for use on a sink, a tub, or even a drain in your shower. The process of using a plunger on one of these drains can be very intricate. You might not know how well to get the plunger applied all the way through. 

But the good news is that our experts can help you with making the most out of your contents. A plunger can make a real difference when taking care of your toilet, but you’ll have to use your plunger correctly.
