What is a power plunger?
|A power plunger uses compressed air to break up a blockage.|
|The plunger has a pump to draw air into the cylinder to create the air pressure for it to work.|
|The air pressure, when fired, releases a shock wave through the water, like a plunger which uses water to break up blockages.|
|This type of plunger has several attachments (cup washers) to enable it to be used for various types of blockages (see section on what power plungers are used for?).
