No one has truly experienced the feelings of fear and embarrassment until they have clogged a toilet in someone else’s home. When that happens what do you do? You’re going to do everything in your power to avoid letting the homeowner know, so you try to unclog it youself. However, plungers aren’t always completely reliable. If the clog is too big, chances are you may have to get a professional involved.
You no longer have to worry about this happening with the new invention. A South Korean man has invented the next new plumbing mechanism that is sure to take over the market.
The 36-year-old inventor wondered if there was an easier way to unclog toilets. The basic concept of a plunger is to apply pressure that forces the mess down the toilet. His invention uses the same basic principle of pressure, but his product applies much more than the basic plunger.
The invention called “Pung-too” works by placing a strong plastic film over the bowl of the toilet. When the toilet is flushed, the water bulges up the plastic. You have to push the plastic down multiple times and the force of the water pressure causes the toilet to unclog. Though it seems scary to flush the toilet again after the bowl is already full, you can see here that if the Pung-too is sealed properly you won’t have to worry about the toilet overflowing.
The inventor explained that he created the prototype about two years ago. However, his first creation wasn’t strong enough to withstand the overflow of water. After two years of trial and error, he has finally created the finished product.
The Pung-too not only make clearing wastes quicker and easier, but it is a lot more hygienic. A plunger gets used then placed back in the corner of the bathroom. It is never effectively cleaned, so bacteria builds up. The Pung-too has to be thrown away after each use, so you no longer have to worry about keeping a dirty plunger in your bathroom.
Currently, you can only purchase this product in South Korea. It only costs about $24 for a set of three. Since the video of his product went viral on YouTube, many vendors throughout the world have called him. It shouldn’t be too long until we start seeing this product sold in American stores.
