Plunger for Elongated Toilet


I have 2 of the new low flow, elongated toilet bowls. (Lucky me ) Wife insisted..

A typical plunger will not work on them since I can't get a seal since this is elongated. I did use an auger to clear a clog but would rather use a plunger if there is one that will work with this style toilet.

Any recommendations or brand names? I have been to the big box stores, hardware stores they say..all that I can use is an auger.

Hope you guys have some suggestions.

Tx,

Tom

Plunger for Elongated Toilet


Thanks... this has a long, not round drain - like a scoop... none of the round plungers I have can get a seal since the scoop part of the toilet is too long.

Is the rubber soft enough on this one to countour to it and cover it up for a seal?

Tx,

Tom

Easy, buy a standard toilet plunger and remove the short handle then replace with a wooden broom handle.

It's elongated, almost like a gravy boat (Don't blame me..) with the narrow part towar4ds the front...even the largest traditional round plunger won't cover all of it so no seal... I guess their isn't something you guys can use other than an auger... ?? ?

Tx
