How to Use a Plunger
A plunger is a simple device, but very effective if used correctly. There are several types available including pump action ones.
- Smear petroleum jelly around the base of the plunger – this helps seal it against the bottom of the bowl.
- Place the plunger over the outlet and run the water so that there is enough in the bowl to cover the base of it.
- Now, holding a wet cloth over the overflow, pump the plunger several times.
- Remove it and see if it’s worked.
- Repeat as necessary.
