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.

Large Drain Bladder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 133.

I was skeptical, but when my 100' snake wouldn't reach the clog I bought this thing out of desperation. There was a small learning curve. I attached the bladder to a 50' garden hose, connected the other end to my utility sink and proceeded to feed 25' or more down the main sewer line (from inside my house going out to the street) which looks to be about 4' in diameter. Turning the cold water on resulted in water coming back up the pipe into the house... this was obviously not working, but again I was desperate for a solution. Figuring that the pressure wasn't enough to cause the bladder to expand and properly block the pipe I cranked the hot water all the way up too. Almost immediately the flow of water into the house stopped. When I turned the water off I heard the blissful sound of draining water! Indoor plumbing is great, but can not be fully appreciated until you have to live without it.

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!

This product provides a good, low-cost approach to unclogging a backed up household sewer line before you hire a professional or rent a powered snake. I had tried a small hand snake, chemicals, and plunging with no success. It was simple to use. I just attached it to my garden hose and ran it down the sewer line cleanout. Thankfully I could reach the clog. Once you turn on the water, the bladder inflates to plug the line above the clog and jets water downpipe to break up the clog. Word of caution, you may get water coming up other nearby drains depending on where they are in relation to the drain bladder and the clog. It worked for me and I'm glad to have it in my toolbox now.

I'm not one to usually write reviews but this product saved me a lot of hassle. I bought this to try before renting a auger to try and clean my main line between the house and street (I had already tried for hours to use my hand auger and a high pressure hose). I attached it and pushed it down near my clog (which was about 30ft out) and turned it on and within seconds I could hear water rushing through the street cleanout. I would highly recommend giving this thing a shot!

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!
