    I own one Kohler 1.6 gallon and two Kohler 3.5 gallon toilets. I don't have the money to replace them with Toto toilets yet. What is the best professional plunger on the market? Thanks!

    A 3' Ridgid or, General closet auger with a drop head would be my choice.
    I havent used a plunger in years! It will cost you about $40.

    It's good to have both a plunger and a toilet auger. If the plunger doesn't work, then break out the auger.

    Another alternative is to have a Toto. Then you don't need either. :D

    If I remember correctly, its generally best to use a flange plunger like the one linked below from the korky website. They do a superior job clearing a toilet clog than a cup plunger does, which is better used for plunging sinks or tubs.

    I don't mean or intend this to be rude, but that is a
    most odd looking thumb..

    It's over extended to bend the tip of the toilet auger to show dimensions. Hope they didn't eat Cheetos after posing for the pic.

    It may also be the shortest closet auger I have ever seen. Most are 36" long, or longer.
