Customer Questions & Answers

Can the Bladder be used with Hot Water?

The Video indicates cold water to fill the bladder but can it be used with hot water and will that be more effective in mains that have soap & lint clogs?

How does this Drain Bladder Work?

Could you please provide instructions or a sketch to show how this tool works. I have a washing machine which discharges into a free standing drain pipe which is 1-1/2 to 2" in diameter which keeps backing up. The drain pipe then goes into a 6" main drain into a french drain.
Asked by: NEPats50
Good question. It works quite simply. You connect it to a water hose and slip it into your cleanout with the end facing the clog. Once fully in the sewer line, have a helper turn the water on to the hose. The bladder will fill up, blow up like a balloon and the hole at the end will spray a jet of water that will fill the sewer line up and push or blow out the clog down the line using water pressure. This takes seconds to a few minutes. The large bladder is for 4" to 6" sewer lines.

can this be used in the toilet without removing the toilet bowl?

product: expandable bladder
Asked by: Anonymous
No this one but the smaller version can and I have used it. Remember that it is just a really thick rubber balloon that allows pressure to build up. Also, make sure you have a helper to turn the water on and off as your toilet may not be sealed completely and could leak around the base so you need someone to quickly turn off the water if that is the case.

Will this work in a main line if roots are part of the obstruction?

Asked by: Karen
Hi Karen – Yes, it would be okay to use this on a main line with roots. Please be aware, it will not tear thru the roots but it will help clear roots that are small and broken up. For a large root blockage, we recommend our 650 Series drain cleaning machine. Please contact our Customer Support Team at 877-272-7755 with any other questions.

I bought this product after pondering possible solutions for my plugged 6 inch french drain. After having to remove two slats from my fence during a recent storm in order to drain water that was rising quickly, I ordered this item instead of renting a roto rooter machine. The product worked like a charm using an ordinary garden hose and totally unblocked the system! I waited until we had a rain event in order to push the clog all the way to the street. Took 6-7 minutes to work. Best $20 I've spent in a long time and I have the bladder for future use. The rubber is fairly heavy duty and is constructed sturdily. Try this first!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a life saver! I've been currently renting a 3 bedroom home for about 2 years now. And I've been paying the landlord $50 every other month to snake the main drain in the back yard. The tubs and toilets in both bathrooms are constantly getting backed up. I eventually purchased a drill snake myself which was a good little penny. But it broke and I'm waiting on a part that could take 3days to get here. Came across this little gadget for $20 in homedepot...needless to say it's awesome!

It took about one minute to do the job. Even if I never use it again, its worth far exceeds the cost (very inexpensive). If you have any DIY in you, save yourself some money, get the bladder! Pros: Easy to use (Connect a hose, insert bladder into the drain, turn on water) inexpensive Reusable Easy clean up Cons: None

I purchased this product after we paid a plumber 180.00 to clear our drain in 5 min. about 2 weeks later it clogged again for whatever reason. so i bought this product at HD. It worked great! I have a friend who borrowed it for his house and it worked equally as well. so the way i see it this 20.00 product has saved about 340.00 so far. I would definitley recommend and have!

After trying all chemicals out there and even an auger this was the last option before calling for external help. And it worked like a charm. Just used a garden hose and this small wonder, inserted as far as I could and turned water on. That's it! Many thanks to people who invented this bladders. Eco friendly and easy to use.

However, there is a need to show in bold print or pictures how and where to place it in the Drain pipe. The tendency is to push it in as far it will go, but when carefully reading the instructions they recommend 6 to 12

A bit pricey at $20; however, they work a treat. Just beware of coming in contact with any sharp things with the water on. They pop like industrial-grade water balloons is punctured, and there's no fixing them...

The bladder didn’t get around the bend in my corrugated pipe so the jet couldn’t get to the clog. It did seal well so some pressure built up, but not enough to put real pressure on the clog. Would not recommend.
