Large diaphragm plunger

Wider plunger for when the bowl is full of soggy toilet paper

While I was posting my loudspeaker plunger idea [1], I realized that a simplified version would also be useful. When the toilet bowl is full with toilet paper, a regular toilet plunger is not as useful, because it's obstructed from getting to the bottom of the bowl to form a seal.

Proposed is simply a wide rubber diaphragm that seals to the rim of the bowl, as in the linked idea, with a handle extending from the top. You just seal it to the rim of the toilet and plunge as usual. This is a cheaper alternative the loudspeaker plunger that keeps its advantage over regular plungers of not having to reach the bottom of the bowl and form a seal there.

       I foresee a problem. Unless the aforementioned bowl is very, very full, you will be compressing a large volume of air by a finite distance, which means you won't create a lot of pressure to shift the, ah, obstruction.

       You can scoop out anything in the bowl, if you must..   

       The purpose of the plunger is usually to pull the plug of stuff back out from down below. not to push it any where.   

       Vinegar helps get rid of stains.
