Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Combike Messy, but it works
I tried a plunger, snake, even chemicals, but nothing worked. I decided to try this before calling a plumber. Unfortunately, it ddn't make a perfect seal, so I had to stuff plastic around the hose and hold the hose to keep it from shooting out, but it did clear the blockage, and because I had put a tray to catch the filthy water it wasn't too bad. It did save me the cost & aggravation of calling a plumber.

Had a clog in my main line more than 50 feet in and around a 90 degree bend. Liquid drain openers did absolutely nothing. Couldn't get a fish tape to navigate the turn at that distance. Tried this product and it blew the clog out in less than a minute. So easy to use: Attach to garden hose, shove it in the pipe, turn on water = no more clog! So much wasted time and effort before I tried this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa Drain Bladder - Worked Awesome!!
We had tried the hand held auger/snake quite a few times and the plunger. Also the plunger with the C02 cartridges and nothing was getting through. This bladder is what did the trick and saved us from having to call a plumber!! We used it on the kitchen sink and we are on a septic. The rest of the house was flowing fine -- just the line from the sink to the septic. We opened up the pipe under the sink and blasted it through there. 1st try we found out that the water went the path of least resistance and shot out of the vent on the roof! Surprise! So we went on the roof and blocked the vent with a rag and some pressure and then gave it another hose blast under the sink and presto!! Done. Thanks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by suburbanplankton Works like a charm
Had a clog in the drain from the kitchen. Called out a plumber, and he snaked it and found the clog about 60 feet down the line. A month or so later it was clogged again. Plumber came out and snaked it again (at no charge) and recommended a drain bladder if the problem happened again. About 6 months later, it happened again. This time, instead of waiting for the plumber, I had the problem fixed in 5 minutes.
The problem seems to have been that the auger would punch a hole through what can only he a big fatty, greasy mess...only to have it close up again a while later. The water pressure from the bladder (hopefully) washed the drain clean once and for all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daah Product worked
It worked. Clog gone. Less mess than the snake. I have wondered how well they would work. We had a log in our main line past the sink as a result of too much being sent through disposal. It dislodged the glob. I do knot know if it would work in other situations

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Worked Excellent Down Vent Pipe
Really didn't want to write this review right now after losing sleep last night with 2 toilets, 2 showers, and 2 sinks all plugged up on one side of house but had to after totally being saved by other peoples reviews on how easy these drain bladders are. My wife bathed our 2 girls last night right before bedtime only to have the tub back up into the shower in the other bathroom, and when I tried flushing toilet it backed up too and I knew that the 2 bathrooms, which are right next to each other, were all plugged up which meant no toilets in the house. I panicked and wasn't sure how I was going to get the job done ASAP and started looking online for any help as I don't have a lot of experience with drain snakes or unplugging drains. It didn't take too long, a couple of hours, before I stumbled onto someone mentioning a drain bladder and how well it worked and so I started looking into it and there were lots of people getting amazing results. Went down to home depot that night and bought it and raced back home and hooked it up in the master shower and turned it on only to see the toilets bubbling, both the tub and shower filling up and I knew I was in big trouble. I started looking at snakes but it was now midnight and I was too tired to go on and I couldn't buy one at that hour anyways so we would all have to deal with no toilets in the morning. Next morning I borrowed my neighbor's 15 foot snake and tried and tried but couldn't get to the clog. I finally got desperate and remembered looking over plumbing sketches on how the air vent could be straight up from the waste line up to my roof and so I climbed up on the roof and shoved it as far as I could get it down the bathrooms vent line. I noticed that I could hear water moving and it wasn't going into any of the bathroom fixtures so we crossed our fingers and let it run for about 20 minutes and when I turned off the water viola everything drained. Thanks to God for answering my prayers on what to do and for so many people writing their experiences through reviews. By the way, make sure to learn where to put the drain bladder in the piping and possible problems before using as I did because it does make a difference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheRock32 Product of the decade!
I recently spent the better part of 3 days trying to get my kitchen sink unplugged. It was not plugged solid but draining very very slowly. Went to the cleanout valve- another 2 hours to get that off, snaked it bit by bit - pulling out pail after pail of black sludge. Finally heard of this product after looking around and gave it a try - 5 minutes and my problem was solved! It blasted out whatever was left there and the ktichen is draining perfectly. If everyone knew about this tool plumbers would lose a LOT of business. There are few products out there that exceed expectations, this is definitely 1 of them. One word of warning, make sure you don't push it too far down the drain or you may have water/sludge backing up out of your drain. Be sure to have somone watching when you turn the water on.
