Rated 4 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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.

This product failed while about 1.5'-2' down the drain. The brass part where the hose attaches to the rubber bladder part freed itself causing the hose and attached brass piece to fly out of the drain, which is no big deal. But, the rubber bladder part remained down the drain. Further complicating my clogged drain headache.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Abath Surprisingly Great.
I had a drain that was hopelessly clogged with nearly a decades worth of dirt run off, this thing powered through the whole thing effortlessly. There were a few leaks where the bladder met the hose connector but nothing major. I will note that you should NOT play with it when it's not in a pipe because it will blow up and it will be scary. Even if you have to buy a new one every time you unclog a drain it's still more economical than a chemical drain cleaner or plumber.
