Customer Questions & Answers

Will this product work well in a bathtub drain?

Asked by: Anonymous
I am not an expert. I would say maybe. if you can put this as far down the pipe as possible, you may have a shot. My concern is that once you pressurize the hose and the bladder isn't past, lets say, the next drain (from the sink or adjoining shower drain) the water will wind up in those places. If it were me, I would try it while having someone else stand in those places looking for water coming up. The important thing is to make sure that the hose is as far down the drain as you can get it. Good luck!

can i use it more than once or do i have to buy a new one?

Asked by: Anonymous
It may be used several times as needed. It should last a long time if stored and cared for correctly.

does it matter whether you use the cold water from outdoors faucet or hot water from laundry faucet?

I thought I read on the packaging that you're supposed to use hot water from the laundry faucet in order for product to expand. Is that true?
Asked by: Anonymous
I am not certain of the answer, but I think the package says not to use hot water. It is a rubber bladder so I doubt hot water is recommended.

I was skeptical about this product, but I decided to try it and possibly avoid a $100 plumber visit. I was pleasantly surprised. It worked just the way it was supposed to work, and it cleared my drain.

I tried 2 different kinds of draino/liquid plumber stuff on one of my shower drains, and that didn't work at all. I tried snaking it, and only got some hair out. I finally bought the drain bladder because I had lost the one I'd bought years ago, and it worked immediately. I'll never buy draino again. The best thing is that there is hardly any effort required. Simply take the drain plate off, stick the bladder about 1 ft in the drain pipe(bladder is obviously connected to your water hose), turn the water on, and wait a few minutes. As long as your blockage isn't from some idiot pouring mortar or cement down your drain, this thing will work great!

After a frustrating evening with chemical sulfuric acid, boiling water and plungers I was ready to call a plumber. I always hate snaking the drain and the previous time it took HOURS until it worked properly... and taking apart the clean out about 5 times... I wanted to avoid snaking at all costs... Reached out to a local plumber today and cost was going to be over $100 at least... A friend recommended this little thing and for $12 figured I'd give it a go. I could only get it 16 inches into the pipe because there was a bend under the floor... I figured, well it may not work, but we'll give it a shot anyway... Let the water run for 10 minutes tops... put everything back together & viola - no more clogged drain. Saved me over $100 and the frustration of getting out of work to meet a plumber. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I had a clog between my sink with garbage disposal and washing machine which use the same sewer drain-off. I first used some drayno and hot water to break up debri. Then that didn't do the trick so I found this bladder and stuck it in the washer down spout first and sealed off sink. Let water run for 10min. Sink was still backing up so I disconnected bottom of sink and stuck this in pipe and sealed off washing machine downspout and let run for 20min! The debri and old food finally broke through and went down sewer pipe!! You can hear when water is running properly through pipes kind of a hollow sound! I will use this bladder once a month to keep old food from disposal clogging up drain. The auger or snake couldn't get around the S curves or hard angles in my pipes but this thing will force high pressure water through!! This is the best 12.00$ I have ever spent in my life lol!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked the first time Last night was my first time using a drain bladder style clog remover, I've used the standard snake-style cleaner on many previous occasions. I had a persistent clog in the drain under a kitchen sink and tried four times to snake the drain, each time sending 8 feet or so of snake into the drain under the kitchen sink. Each time I disassembled the trap under the sink, snaked directly into the line and then reassembled the trap. The drain remained clogged even after four tries. So I went to Home Depot last night and bought the medium drain bladder (which fit perfectly the 1 1/2 inch drain) and followed the directions. I was able to feed it past a couple of 45 degree bends before pressurizing it. I ran water through it at full blast for about a minute, pulled it out and put everything back together and now the drain is clear. Thanks for an effective, inexpensive and easy-to-use product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bladder Control! I was dubious that this drain bladder would work, but the concept was intriguing: buy the correct size for your pipe, attach it to a garden hose, feed it down the clean-out as far as it will go, and open the water faucet to fill the bladder with water. The water fills the bladder and expands to hold the bladder snugly inside the pipe. Then the water bursts out of the bladder through a small opening at high pressure to blast away the blockage. The verdict: it worked for me. The hose went in about as far as the pipe snake had, but after blasting the blockage for 20 minutes or so, I was able to feed the bladder in to about twice as far. I blasted for another 20 minutes. It's hard to say if the entire blockage was cleared because I suspect the old cast iron pipe has a lot of internal corrosion and at some point the hose would not be ridged enough to continue feeding into the pipe. However, it's been a week now and the sewer is still flowing. Bladder Control!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for the price This little tool packs a big punch on clogged drains and lines. Has saved me time and money over calling a plumber to unclog kitchen and floor drains. They are however a bit sensitive and tend to burst easily on certain applications. Still a good tool for the price and the fact that it comes in three different sizes is a plus.
