Wow. Thanks OP.
Picked up at the local store in Ajax (a few left).
One drain completely plugged, 2 slow draining. Completely cleared in the first pump, did a few extra to really clean up the side and it did!

-the adapter fits the sink drain perfectly
-to avoid sucking in dirty water, run the water first, plug the drain with your hand then suck in the clean water.
-plug the overflow hole with a wet paper towel.

Amazing!

Can this or something else be used on clogged pipes of one inch or less in diameter? The drain from my furnace a/c and humidifier got plugged and was overflowing as condensate backed up into the humidifier reservoir and overflowed as they shared the same drain tube. Lowe’s had a bladder attachment to a hose to blast the clog but only for bigger pipes. Handyman suggested running a new line or digging up the basement floor to put a new pipe into the floor but this was drastic so I used the “harsh” chemicals referred to in the ad instead to clear it successfully but was wondering if there was a mini plunger for very small pipes?

Wait, you guys are fixing slow draining toilets with this? So this is better than regular plungers?

Just watch out if your plumbing is old / weak... This can cause a burst in the piping as the pressure is fairly high.

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.
