Drainage is important. Many times drainage issues are on the verge of an emergency. If unattended, some clogged drains can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Please don’t leave a clogged drain unattended! We can troubleshoot and resolve clogging with a slew of tools. Some of these are available for retail purchase, but we recommend especially in serious cases, to let a licensed professional resolve serious drain clogs.

Common Drain Clog Tools used by Plumbers

  1. Plungers: A plunger is the most basic tool for unclogging drains. There are two main types: the cup plunger, designed for flat surfaces like sinks, and the flange plunger, better suited for toilets due to its shaped bottom.
  2. Hand Augers (Drain Snakes): A hand auger is a flexible metal cable with a corkscrew-like coil at one end, used to manually dislodge clogs in drains by being fed into the pipe and twisted.
  3. Motorized Drain Augers: More powerful than hand augers, motorized drain augers can cut through tougher blockages, such as tree roots, with their rotating spiral head. They are available in various sizes for different types of pipes.
  4. Hydro Jetters: A hydro jetter uses high-pressure water to remove blockages and clean the interior surfaces of plumbing pipes. This tool is effective for removing grease, sediment, and other debris that can accumulate over time.
  5. Closet Augers: Specifically designed for toilets, closet augers are a type of hand auger with a protective sleeve to prevent scratching or damaging the porcelain.
  6. Plumbing Inspection Cameras: These are not cleaning tools per se, but they are essential for diagnosing clogs and blockages deep within the plumbing system. A flexible rod with a high-resolution camera on the end allows plumbers to see inside the pipes.
  7. Drain Cleaning Bladders: These rubber bladders attach to a garden hose and are inserted into a clogged drain. Water pressure inflates the bladder, releasing a strong jet of water to clear the blockage.
  8. Air Burst Drain Cleaners: These devices use compressed air, carbon dioxide, or other gases to create an explosive force to clear blockages. They are particularly effective for blockages caused by trapped air in the pipes.
