Customer Questions & Answers

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.

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?
Asked by: JohnD
The package instructions said not to use hot water but didn't explain why. I used cold water and it worked. Afterwards I ran a lot of hot water down the cleared drain.

Multiple fixtures drains, toilet shower and sink in upstairs bathroom will overflow???

How do you block off other fixtures upstairs that will overflow? The drains connect to other toilets and shower upstairs will overflow, correct?
Asked by: MikeD
No, if the clog is at one fixture this will blow the clog into the main line. If the main line is clogged and you don't know exactly where, you can use this from below aiming up the line and it will break up the clog and you should use a helper to warn you if there is a backup situation so you can turn off the water source and release the pressure.

I had a fully backed up drain from the house to the street and this item was a great investment! Cleared the drain in a few minutes. I didn't think that it would work. Definitely try this before you use a big snake. Very easy to use. I opened the clean-out in my yard, and guided the bladder into the pipe about 20 feet (with hose connected). Turned on the water and waited a few minutes. When I turned off the water, the drain was clear, and I pulled the hose and bladder out. Excellent invention. Makes pressure between the bladder and the clog. Highly recommended.

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.

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...

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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little product. When we have heavy rain the city drains fill up and my main line gets clogged. This happens at least once a year. Normally I rent a power snake but this time I picked up this bladder. Talk about convenient. Hook it on the garden hose, run it down the drain, and turn on the water. I know from past experience that my clogg is about 75 feet out. This thing just built up pressure until it cleared the pipe.
