How Can I Benefit from a Taze Plunger?

When most homeowners picture a plunger, they imagine a wooden stick with a red suction cup at the end. While it’s true that this classic image is indeed a common type of plunger, there are actually several different plunger designs in use today. The best type of plunger for the job depends on the type of clog affecting the pipe, as well as the size of the drainpipe suffering from the blockage. A taze plunger, often called a “plumber’s plunger,” is a powerful tool that many homeowners have never seen, but is appropriate in certain situations to clear out very stubborn clogs.
