Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fwfburg worked when the auger failed
This is the first review I have ever made, but I felt that I needed to share. I had a clog between my house and street clean outs. I was getting no where with a 1/4" x 25' handheld auger after spending all morning working at the clog. I would just get bits and pieces. After purchasing this, the clog was gone in five minutes and I saw the clog rush past the street clean out. Problem solved! I used the large on a 4" pvc.

After fighting with a snake for an hour I inserted this into the drain line then turned on the water 3 seconds later I could hear the clog bust loose

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve I had one explode on me, but 2nd try was a success!
Used in 4" pipe, I think my problem the first time was that the tip of the bladder where the opening is was up against a turn in the pipe, which blocked the opening, and covered it even tighter as the bladder expanded, and bam, it popped. Fortunately, even thought it had a big hole, it stayed intact and I was able to get it out easily enough. Second time, I made sure I didn't bottom out the bladder against the pipe and it worked perfectly, at least it seems that way so far. Good luck, hope this helps!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shawn Amazing!!!
I had a clogged main about 10ft past the clean out. I tried 2 different snakes (gross) and 2 gallons of main pipe cleaner (lye). Still didn't unclog. My Grandpa had one of these and brought it over. I pushed it in until it stopped and turned on the water very slowly. I put the water to full blast and saw the water rise in the basement drain which I plugged quickly. After 30 seconds I pulled the plug off and it was clear! We ran it for a few minutes the did volume tests. Clog gone!!!! Go buy this immediately!!! Saved me hundreds and if I had used it right away would have saved us over a day of using no water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerdmann Saved me from having to rent power drain snake again!
This is a 2 person job that can clear the main drain line fast & easy without having to rent & hoist a power snake on the roof.
After attaching the Large drain bladder to a 50' hose then attaching an in line quick shut off between another length of hose & the hose bib so I could easily turn the water on & off from the roof.
I went on the roof & lowered the large drain bladder down the roof vent until it stopped, then using my cell phone connected to head phones I was able to communicate with my wife on her cell phone. After turning on the water, the first few times the water backed up in the sinks so I stopped the water let it drain down. After repeating a few times the drains, showers & toilets all drained perfectly. This really worked well and was much easier & less expensive than renting a power drain snake & hoisting it to the roof!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Cheap product caused a bigger problem
Be careful using this product. I accidentally used to much water pressure and the bladder shot off the end of the hose down my main line and caused a bigger block. I had to call a plumbing company to come out and use a camera to locate it and then fish it out with the snake. I was lucky enough that they were able to remove the bladder and was only out of pocket $600. The worse case scenario was $3,000.00 + to have a company dig up the line in my yard to remove it. I will never use this product again. If you decide to give it a try go easy on the water pressure and turn it on slowly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SushiBreath Hard to turn corners
Tried to use large bladder in my 4" sewer line but had a hard time pushing it past any type of "angles" in the line. It took about 20 minutes to even get it started because the cleanout dropped 18" down then made a 90 degree angle - the bladder just wouldn't bend and i couldn't get leverage pushing down on the hose from so far up. It may work with cleanouts that are not so deep but i can't use it in mine.
