Yes! It is one of the best tools you can use to unclog a sink, depending on what is down there. But in our experience, it is important to note what the problem is first before trying to find the best way to fix it. Even though it may seem like an easy task, we have seen customers try to fix the sink drain, when it could be an issue with the faucet itself. For this area of the house, you need to make sure to use a “cup-style” plunger that is designed to build up pressure in the sink piping. For example: a toilet plunger may have a tall dome and a flange (or collar) that extends from the dome’s bottom edge. This helps seal the space around the hole, in the toilet bowl. If you were to use that plunger for a sink, it won’t create a seal at the sink basin, unless you tuck the flange up into the dome. The “cup-styled” plunger will be a better force of suction, while it compresses, in the drain. If the seal is tight, the clog will loosen and your project will be completed!
