Toilets are something we use every day and when something goes wrong it’s a major inconvenience and we want it fixed right away.
How a toilet works is a fairly simple concept. It uses gravity. When you flush, the water empties from the tank into the bowl, through the drain, into your house’s pipes, and then into the sewer system. Then the tank fills again, ready for the next use.
But the fact is there are many different parts that need to work perfectly and in sync.
This leaves you trying to figure out what is causing the problem.

Did you know there are more than one type of plunger?
Here are the basic types of household plungers:
It’s also called the cup plunger. This is the one you are probably most familiar with. It has a straight handle with a rubber (usually red) cup at the end. They only work on a flat surface. So, it works best on your sink and tub drains.
It won’t work well in a toilet because it won’t create a strong enough seal.
Also called the flange plunger. It is similar to the cup plunger but it has a soft rubber flap (a flange) that folds out from the edge of the cup. The cup is sometimes smaller in diameter than a sink plunger. It can also have a longer handle.
The flange fits well over a curved toilet drain and creates a tight seal.
If you want to use this plunger on your sink or tub drain, you can. Just tuck the flange up into the cup before using it.
Instead of a cup, these plungers have a beehive-shaped attachment made of stout rubber. It narrows to a small flange at the bottom. This shape is the most effective and can be used on toilet drains of various sizes.
Some come with a T-shaped handle to give you better leverage while you are plunging.
Tiered plungers are similar to beehive plungers. But they have flat tiers instead of the rounded shape of the beehive plunger. Both the beehive and tiered plungers create good suction.
Also called a bellows plunger. This plunger is made of hard plastic and has a smaller cup. Its shape is where it gets its name. The hard plastic cap has folds in it so it resembles an accordion. The folds help build up more pressure without you exerting more force.
Keep in mind this plunger can be difficult to use because the hard plastic makes it hard to create a good seal. The hard plastic could also scratch your toilet.
It is designed for use in toilets.
Safety Note: For your own safety, we do not recommend that you use the same plunger for your sinks and toilets. This could lead to cross-contamination. It is best to have a plunger for your sinks, tubs, and shower drains and a separate plunger for your toilets.
