Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stolz Works Great- wish I had tried it before I dragged the snake out!
This thing worked great. I spent hours snaking out my kitchen sink with a power auger. I got in about 25 feet and could not get it around a bend. It was totally clogged. Also tried 2 bottle of drain cleaner and was about to call a plumber in. As a last ditch effort i tried this and within 5 minutes the sink was draining better than it has in years.
Tip: I bought a hose valve and short length of hose to attach to the bladder. This way I was able to control the pressure at the drain location (hose was connected to outside supply). This also allowed me to reposition the bladder to get a good seal.

I have a basement floor drain tucked under a shower stall -- difficult to access. It had become slow enough that a normal shower would fill the bowl and water would flow across the floor. With great difficulty, I managed to get a snake into the drain about 5 or 6 feet, but all that did was cut my hand, break the snake cranking mechanism, and ultimately push the obstruction tighter so that even a quick wet and rinse shower would cause water across the floor. AArgh! I went to Home Depot to buy a replacement snake and saw this bladder on the shelf, so grabbed it. Back home, the bladder barely fit into the floor drain before hitting the p-trap, but it was enough. On went the water, which easily sealed the drain to prevent backflow, and the water pressure pushed the obstruction downstream and out of my life. I then removed the bladder and stuck the hose down the drain. Even with the faucet full-on, there was no backup! A complete success.

I used this for a clogged pool line. It blew apart after 3 short 10 min tries at unclogging the line and the water pressure was not at full capacity.

Quick and easy way to deal with a clog in a bathroom shower drain without relying on harsh chemical drain openers. Often the only thing a clog needs is a gentle pressure to force it on down the drain which this gadget did just that. It should be the place to start when dealing with any drain clog.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by morty Didn't work
I followed the instructions and increased pressure slowly. It didn't work, it never inflated or even looked like it was expanding at all. I tried increasing pressure faster....nothing. Water just flowed steadily through it. I tried different sizes and got the same result. It is a great idea, but lacks the engineering to make it worth the purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Followed instructions, Blew up, annoyed
I purchased this to clear up a clog in my laundry drain and it blew up sending 90% of the product into my drain. Now I have to rent an auger after work tomorrow.
Instructions it does not list on the website:
Do not use with high water pressure (50psi or above).
Do not use with hot water.
Do not use if chemicals have been added (unless if can be fully inserted into the drain).
Check, check, check, I even used my RV water regulator (45-50psi) as I keep my home PSI high for my shower.
Like my title says, annoyed.
