Can anyone confirm this? I also found it strange the instruction says that you're pulling it AFTER pushing it down on the sink.
If that really is the case, might fill it up first before pushing it down.

Looks like I need to find 2 things at Dollarama now. Thanks for sharing that.

I just take half a paper towel and plug up the overflow hole. Just jam the paper towel into the hole, plunge away for a few minutes, and presto. I never had an issue with plunging a bathtub before but I rarely need to because I have a hair strainer thatI have to clean out everyday (from Dollarama).

I recommend snaking your drain with one of those single piece plastic sticks (called zip-it or zip stick or something like that). I bought one a few years ago from homedepot and it cleared out my drains pretty damn well. It's reusable, and easy to clean and less likely to break. Mine looks like a sitck with holes punched out along the edge so It's less likely to catch on stuff. I can only find images of another type with barbs that stick out (more likely to get stuck).

Picked one up today. Good timing because they just stocked it yesterday. Told me they only get one shipment of these so once it's sold it's gone. Maybe that only applies to this one location though.

It doesn't look any easier than a regular plunger.

Don't think the point is ease, it is supposed to create more pressure since you are moving more air than just the small air pocket in a typical plunger.

Bought it yesterday (didn't realize we had a whole thread on RFD), it fixed a drain issue in 15 min of work that liquid drain openers haven't been able to..

Worth the $4!!

Worked fine on my bathroom sink. The overflow allowed me to take excess gunk out when I pumped this..
