General Pipe Cleaners' VersaPlunge features a patented, pliable VersaFlange cone. The plunger easily conforms to nearly any shaped toilet bowl opening, creating a tight seal in virtually any toilet design, the company notes. Traditional plungers, by contrast, have round ends — incompletely sealing the bowl drain and producing unsanitary splash-back.

VersaPlunge sports a relief valve in the handle to minimize overflow, and its super-compressible, accordion-style bellows lets users apply extra force on stubborn stoppages. It is extremely versatile, too, the company says. Roll up the VersaFlange end and make a flat bottom to clear sinks, tubs and other drain openings.
