Ladle Plunger / Ladle Plunger

Ladle Plunger

When the pipe is blocked, the toilet (or the sink) is full of dirty water. Generally, we will use a traditional plunger to release stoppages in plumbing. However, the extra dirty water is always stirred up, wets and pollutes the surrounding and the user’s clothes. In order to solve the problem, Ladle Plunger is proposed with ladling and pumping functions for the users. The upper part structure of the rubber cup provides people to ladle and reduce extra water. With proper water, the lower part could be operated more effectively for pumping. Besides, the shaft handle with antiskid texture offers comfortable holding for the users.
