Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by newdaddy56 It's a great idea but you may need to consider several things before you use this product.
First...what may have caused your drain to be clogged?
As it turns out the bladder wasn't strong enough to unclog my drain but did push the clog deeper into the pipe.
so much so that in the end I had to call and have the drain cleared to a tune of $320.00.
The smaller bladder may be good for bathroom and kitchen clogs but the larger bladder wasn't worth the time or trouble.
Submitting a photo of my waste drain isn't something I think folks want to see...

After pressure is applied the bladder expands and allows water to flow without any leaks.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by STAYCOOL GREAT TOOL FOR THE MONEY JUST MAKE SURE YOU READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND LIMITATIONS!!!
THIS TOOL DOES WORK AND SAVED ME A LOT OF MONEY UNCLOGGING A SEPTIC TANK BAFFLE LATE AT NIGHT. WENT TO HOME DEPOT BOUGHT THE LARGE DRAIN BLADDER RAN TO THE HOME WITH THE CLOG HOOKED IT UP TO MY HOSE THEN PUT IT IN MY CLOGGED MAIN DRAIN. TURNED ON THE OUTSIDE SPICKET AND IN LESS THEN 2 MINUTES THE BLADDER BLEW OFF THE HOSE. THANK GOODNESS IT UNCLOGGED THE BAFFLE AND THE BLADDER FELL INTO THE SEPTIC TANK. BUT THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A NIGHTMARE IF IT HAD STAYED IN THE DRAINLINE. I THEN READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND IT SAYS NOT TO USE WITH WATER PRESSURE ABOVE 50 PSI. I BELIEVE MOST HOUSES IN FL ARE BETWEEN 60 AND 80 PSI. SO I GUESS YOU NEED TO BUY A PRESSURE GAUGE AS WELL WHEN USING THIS OR TAKE A GUESS ON THE PRESSURE YOU ARE LETTING OUT. FAIL SAFE SHOULD BE THE BLADDER BLOWS A HOLE BEFORE THE WHOLE BLADDER BLOWS OFF YOUR HOSE IN YOUR DRAIN LINE. GOOD LUCK!!

This is what you need to unclog a blocked sewer drain pipe! It works! My only quibble is that it is advertised for 4" to 6" drains. My drain is 3" and it was perfect. Don't get the smaller version that is advertised for 1.5" to 3.0" drains if you have a 3" drain to unclog.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wesley Works AMAZING!!
So the first time my main sewer line clogged up i called a plumber to come and snake the line and it ended up costing me over $300!! Today my line clogged up again....i was devastated as i went downstairs to see my carpet outside my laundry room door soaked with water. I immediately went to facebook to see if anyone had a power snake machine i could rent for cheap but no hits. My next option was to try the smaller (1.5''-3'') drain bladder my dad had bought us for the first clog. Me, being a new home owner, didnt know how big the sewer pipe was. So after my friends on facebook told me to get the bigger drain bladder i immediately went to Home Depot to get one. Upon seeing the price (my family is really tight on money) i was almost turned away, but i went ahead and tried it anyways. Came back home, twisted it on, sent it down the drain, turned on the hose, and waited a good 5 minutes. Right after i turned off the water the clog was gone!!!!!!! I couldnt be anymore excited!! all i gotta say is i will recommend any of these to anyone, just make sure you get the right size for the right project.

We now have several sizes to help with the maintenance of our stations. They do work great. This is not a negative mark but just a reality: The rubber does eventually degrade over the years so if you detect a problem you are better to buy a new one than have it rupture in your drain line.
