Definition:
The ball plunger and the flange plunger are shape variations of the same plunger concept used to clear clogs in toilets by the applications of vacuum and the force of water. These ball or flange plunger shapes effectively seal the hole at the bottom of a toilet bowl, unlike a standard cup shaped plunger used for sinks and tubs.
