Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judes I am in love...and its with this gadget...
Okay, we have a 1908 Edwardian home. All of the drain waste pipes are too small and the joints were installed backwards so that the flow of water gets disrupted on its way out the house. We have ALWAYS had problems with them and the quotes to clean out by professionals seemed to end the same way "What we need to do is open up the floor and cut it all out to be replaced" a horrifying thought.
The prep was about 2 minuets. No need to go subfloor. The reversible suction cup thing is awesome. It worked instantly. I want more problems just so I can use it again and feel like the Incredible Hulk!

Had a severe clog in a toilet. After trying a snake and plunger
Unsuccessfully I decided to take a chance on this concept. One blast was all it took and the clog was gone. So glad my local HD store had it in stock. Also was happy to see that extra cartidges, power discs, and splash guards were also in stock

This product cleared the AC drain line in seconds. Love it! Need two people to do the job, one on the outside and the other inside the house to catch the water and stuff from the AC line. I will recommend this item to my family and friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IndyFlyer Unclogged My Sink
We have had a slow draining upstairs bathroom sink for a few weeks now. It's a 1950's house. Based on how long water flowed freely before slowing up, I knew the clog was pretty far down the line. We tried vinegar and baking soda, boiling water, normal plunger and none freed things up. So my last resort was to try the Kleer Drain Opener before calling a plumber. I followed the instructions and filled the sink up with water, but I hadn't taped up the sink overflow vent holes on the first round. The 1st round was unsuccessful, but I did tape the holes on the 2nd round and instantly saw the water draining. I was worried about causing a plumbing leak, but no sign of one yet and water flows great. I'm sure it doesn't work in all situations, but it worked for me.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LS68 Works, but be ready for a poo shower
Don't think it really accomplishes much more than a typical plunger. It moved the blockage in my toilet enough that I had one successful flush, but then it blocked again right away. I basically just momentarily pushed the blockage down a bit. Ultimately just a bit better than a plunger. For the same money I bought a drain snake and problem solved. Should have got the snake in the first place and saved the $40 I spent on this gizmo and the 4 extra CO2 canisters which are all used up not. I would also be concerned about blowing pipes because this thing has quite a kick. That leads me to the last piece of advice. Be prepared to be covered in whatever is in the toilet. Luckily my toilet was clean clear water. I would have been pretty upset if it were not because on a couple of uses I was absolutely drenched by the kick back of water.
Summary: A bit better than the average rubber plunger, but drain snake is way more effective for the same price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Surprisingly Effective!
I have a 1930 bungalow in Houston, Texas. The sewer system is a mix of PVC, Cast Iron and ABS. A clog developed in line with tub. No water was passing out of the tub in a 30 minute window.
This was affecting the kitchen sink and the tub. I ran my 25' power snake down to no avail. A crawl under the house showed water backed up for a good distance in this branch. I was either grabbing my spade and hacksaw, or using chemcials...until I found this thing.
I got set up, but on my first shot failed to block the overflow drain on the tub sufficiently. I found taking the cover off and stuffing a rag in and holding it in place to be very effective. On the second shot...wham...clear as a whistle. No dangerous chemicals, eight hour waits or other nonsense.
This tool is effective, but some plumbing experience is very helpful. Like all things DIY, the tool is often as good as the operator

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lee Worked to clear a VERY stubborn TOILET CLOG!!! : )
After a LOT of tedious, vigorous plunging, taking the toilet off, trying a 1/4 inch brasscraft brass reel, which I knew was really designed for a sink, I then tried multiple bottles of chemicals to no avail and was considering renting an auger from HomeDepot or calling in a professional plumbing / routing service when I spotted this alternative thought it was worth a try but I was skeptical. Well two cartridge blasts did the trick! I am thrilled. A big THANK YOU to the inventors and distributors. A small caveat - I did get some splash back, so use a towel or the provided splash guard. Good luck!

Clog in the tub kept getting worse, to the point there was standing water, Problem is I tried to use a plunger and the tub filled with all sorts of junk. Left with little options since the wife wanted to take a shower I ran to the store, on an impulse buy I picked up this little gem. Tub flows better than when we bought the house!
