Answer: 
Through the wall is best. If you run it through the sink you run a risk of pressuring your drain and trap loose so it will leak.

BCW,
Thank you for your question.
For kitchen sink clogs, and especially if you have a garbage disposal in your sink, we recommend that you first remove the trap under the sink. This will allow you to see if the clog is in the trap. If the trap is clear, it means that the clog is in the piping system further in the wall. You can use the bladder to clear the clog by inserting the ENTIRE bladder into the

Thank you for your question.
For kitchen sink clogs, and especially if you have a garbage disposal in your sink, we recommend that you first remove the trap under the sink. This will allow you to see if the clog is in the trap. If the trap is clear, it means that the clog is in the piping system further in the wall. You can use the bladder to clear the clog by inserting the ENTIRE bladder into the pipe as far as it will reach or at least 6 In deep. Operate the bladder according to the instructions included in the packaging. We hope this helps. Feel free to contact our Product Experts at 800-835-2200 if you need any additional help.

Answer: 
I would probably go under the sink myself if it's not too difficult to get in there. I'm assuming that the clog is probably past where the pipes curve under the sink and it will be easier to apply the water pressure directly on the clog from underneath.

Answer: 
AR20,
Thank you for your question.
The bladder may help with your issue, however it sounds like the washing machine drain is not backed up, but the drain that it feeds into may be. You can try the bladder, it may work depending on the clog and the size of the drain the washing machine drain is feeding into. This is a small drain bladder and it is designed to clear drains 1 in. to 2 in. in diameter.

How to get a stuck rubber drain bladder out of the skimmer pipe.

This question is from Small Drain Bladder
Asked by
Windham, NH

September 7, 2015
First time I ever used one of these to unclog the skimmer pipe to the pump. Turned the hose on and the hose immediately flew out of the skimmer with the top ripped off the bladder attached to the hose. Now the bladder is very stuck in the pipe. I can reach it but it is very tight against the pipe wall and I can't grab it and it won't budge.at all. This is a real problem because of the tiny hole at the bottom of the bladder. I can't run the pool at all. It should be a canvas bladder that collapses. I will never use the rubber one again, but will appreciate any ideas to try and get this bladder out.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A must have for DIY This is a good item for drain clogs. This device cannot take too much water pressure and must remain in drain while in use. Water hose will need to be shut off before removing from drain otherwise the device will burst. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMAZING! Use Drain Bladder instead Chemical Drain Cleaner Small drain bladder is AMAZING. I, like other reviewers tried both drain cleaners and the snake and nothing. Tried this as last resort after a friend mentioned it to me and my clogged shower drain is cleared. Attach to a garden hose, place down drain, slowly turn water to highest flow rate and in a few minutes unclogged drain. Pressure build up forces clog through pipes. I ran very hot water down drain afterwards to help remove possible remaining debris. April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Idea, Cheap and it works! I've seen online videos where people use a rag and garden hose to blow out clogs but this is the way to go. Pressure is not as extreme as a straight garden hose (outlet at tip won't let that happen) and it expands to fit snuggly in the pipe which means no mess. I've read where people have had issues with pipes coming apart in the walls. To me that indicates faulty installation. This is much easier than snaking the blockage. In some cases you might stick this at the top of the sink and not disassemble anything. March 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saved me a plumber's fee Worked great. Attached it to the house and sent it down the cleanout below the kitchen sink. Followed the instructions and reestablished flow. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very useful I use this blow out tool quite a lot for drains in rental houses. It works fine and saves a bunch in plumber costs. I bought a cheaper version at a discount tool place and it popped. This one is good quality and does what it is supposed to do. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great For $10 it saved me a $150 call to RotoRooter. Very simple and easy to use. January 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Wonders I'd had a slow drain on the kitchen sink for a couple of months, and it finally got to bad to stand it anymore. I tried all the chemical drain cleaners and snaking it to no avail. Bought one of these and followed the directions, along with the tip in other reviews to coat it with dish detergent, and get an inline valve to control the water. Put it all together and pushed as far down the drain as I could, which was only about a foot. Turned the water on slowly to let it expand, then water on full and let it run for a couple of minutes. My sink now drains better than it ever has. Thanks for a great, and easy to use product! July 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not effective Waste of time and money. Had to rod the drain to open it up. December 8, 2015
