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!

I had a tough toilet clog. Regular plunger didn't work and I had just disposed of my auger because it was so covered with rust that it left terrible marks in the toilet bowl that were so hard to remove. I went to Home Depot, looking for another auger, and when I spoke to an employee he said that customers were raving about the Kleer Drain and that it is the one that he would buy. So I decided to take a chance. It was easy to put together and I used only one disk the first time. It was so hard for me to push down so I had to get my husband to do it. The clog did not budge so I decided to do as was recommended for a tough clog, and that is to use 2 disks. My husband operated it again and we waited and shortly heard a gurgle and then what little water was in the bowl, disappeared quickly. I flushed the toilet and it worked like a charm. A week later, there was another small clog in our second toilet, and one disk worked the first time. This is a wonderful product and even though extra cartridges will have to be purchased, the price is still a far cry from hiring a plumber. The last time it was necessary to call a plumber for a very stubborn toilet clog, he did the job in 10 minutes and charged me $150.00. As I handed him my check, I told him that in "my next life", I wanted to come back as a plumber. That did not go over too well.

I am so happy I could cry. My stationary tubs have been clogged for weeks. Unable to use my washer. Knew is was just gunk and probably a little frozen underground but nothing was working - nothing. This was a last ditch effort before calling a plumber. It worked on the first try. Worth every cent. And it's powerful but not enough to blow your hand off or anything, which was what I was worried about.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adam Honestly the best $25 I've ever spent.
I've yet to encounter a clog this thing can't handle. Seriously, I've used it a dozen times over the years. Someone in my old apartment building once flushed a whole onion down their toilet and this thing was able to clear the line. I thought it was going to be a cheap toy, but it's one of the most useful things I own.

This worked for me. I finally got it on the fourth cartridge.
One issue that I encountered is that I didn't realize how much force is needed to pierce the cartridge.
Sometimes I would push down and nothing would happen as the cartridge hadn't been pierced.
Another issue in my case was with the overflow vent. So I had a clog in my bathtub/shower and although the instructions suggested using duct tape for the vent trap I didn't have any so I used packing tape and also some envelope seals.
I wasn't sure how well that was really blocking air flow.
I also tried plunging. When I used the plunger I saw what looked like hair flying out from the overflow vent.
So I just went and tried holding a sock up to the overflow vent with one hand and then using the other hand to plunge with a small plunger.
And so I tried this after using up 3 cartridges but not getting it.
This still didn't seem to work, and so I wasn't sure whether or not to spend the last cartridge on another attempt.
One of the things I had thought of doing is seeing if I could hold the sock up with one hand and then doing the Kleer Drain with just one hand. I couldn't get it though as I couldn't exert enough force with one hand to pierce the cartridge.
So I just tried using both hands. I didn't even try to reinstall the tape on the overflow vent.
And actually although I used one disc for the first cartridge I didn't use any for the next three. I just left the spent one in there.
The instructions said that 0 or 1 would be okay for indoor drains.
It probably would have better to have used another disc as I would think that those discs increase the amount of force that is applied from the CO2.
I figured that even if the overflow vent isn't fully covered there might still be enough force to dislodge the clog. Kind of thought that the force would sort of split in half roughly with some air going out the airflow vent and the rest going further into the pipe.
Anyway, I think for the final cartridge I had gotten a bit more accustomed to how much force is needed to pierce the cartridge. And so when I pushed down I saw some vapor emerge and then heard the sound of water draining.
So the product worked will for me, and I just went and ordered some replacement cartridges.
