The Beehive Toilet Plunger tool clears blockages and clogs in toilet bowl drains and pipes. The model promoted in this article is the Korky Beehive Plunger Model 99-4A. It is hands-down, the absolute best plunger on the market for a couple of different reasons. Mainly, because it creates the proper seal to generate clog-busting suction on both old and new high efficiency toilet drain styles. Many facilities have a mixture of old style and new low-consumption toilets currently in use in their school, office building, hospital, or business. This is mainly because of new water regulation requirements that promote high-efficiency toilet bowls to lessen water waste. This change has resulted in many buildings having a variety of toilet bowl drain shapes, creating the need for a plunger that functions properly on both units. The Beehive Plunger does just that. Old stereotypical plungers do not. Read on to learn why and how the Beehive Plunger is the plunger you should have throughout your facility.
Korky’s Beehive Plunger
The beehive plunger is designed and manufactured by Korky Toilet Repair. It is a versatile plunger that works well on both old style and new style toilets.
Beehive Plunger Specifications:
Model: The model number of the Korky Beehive Plunger is Part number 99-4A. Equiparts Part number 66629.
Design: Named after it’s design, the beehive plunger head is shaped like a beehive which makes it flexible and able to fit round and oblong toilet bowl drains. The plunger cup is 6 inches in diameter. It also features a 16 inch T-handle which enables an optimal grip. The Beehive Plunger is made in the USA. Material: The Beehive plunger is constructed of a soft, non-marking rubber. This helps the plunger create a tight seal. Use: The Korky plunger fits both high efficiency toilets (HET) and older toilet styles.
Fact: Old Plungers Do Not Properly Seal New High-Efficiency Toilets.
This is why Korky’s Beehive Plunger is the best plunger option available.
Why is it that old plungers are ineffective on new toilets?
The old, traditional plunger style does NOT fit all toilets. This is important because it means that most old style plungers will not create the proper seal on new style toilet bowls, and therefore will not generate the suction needed to loosen a clog.
The Evolution of Toilet Bowl Shapes: Out with the Round, In with the Keyhole
Not all toilets are created equal. New toilet bowls have drains that are a different shape than older toilet bowl drains. Older toilet bowls have a classic round shape, whereas new high efficiency toilets have a new keyhole shape. Old style round plungers do not properly fit the new drain shape.
Korky Plunger Fits Both Old and New Toilet Bowls The Korky Plunger is guaranteed to fit all toilet bowl shapes and sizes. It fits toilets made by TOTO, Kohler, Sloan, American Standard, and all other toilet brands.
The Wirecutter, an online review entity created by the New York Times, has an article called “The Best Toilet Plunger”. In the article, they considered almost 40 different plungers. They tested a total of 8 of those plungers on three different toilet drain mock-ups. They found that the only plunger which loosened the debris that they stuffed in the drain was the Korky Beehive Plunger. They describe the Korky plunger as ‘…easily surpassing all of the other plungers in pure pipe-clearing power.” Read the full article here.

Does Korky also make a smaller version for household sinks? I don’t relish the idea of using my toilet plunger in my kitchen sink!
Hi J, Thanks for your comment – Korky doesn’t, but we do carry a smaller plunger that’s the perfect size for sink applications – it’s 4-inches in diameter with a 9-inch handle (Equiparts part #03003).
