If there are no other big issues with the drain it will work. I use this in a 2” pipe and it works great
It will build up to the pressure value of your house water line. If the water pressure in your house is 50 psi then the bladder and the pipe will pressurize to 50 psi.
It's not going to fit.
I see no reason why it wouldn't work. The bladder expands and seals the pipe so that water from it won't back flow. That means water coming from behind it won't go past it either.
Double check your pipe size. 3.5" is not a standard size. The size should be printed on the pipe. If it is actually 3.5" I would try the medium size first to see if it works. If not, I would try the large.
it should say on the cardboard backing that it's packaged with. There are 3 sizes that I saw available at Home Depot. The smallest is good for bath sinks. The medium size works for clean out pipes usually located outside your house. I think those are about 3 to 4 inches diameter. I had a clogg which required the use of a snake to get it open and then I cleared it with the bladder.
use a snake to get it out
Yes you can make it fit
I used mine with a garden hose and the pressure blew the bladder right off of the barb and well into my sewer line. Evidently this is not designed to withstand much pressure at all.
It expands quite a bit. I wouldn't be surprised if this was inserted in the end of a plastic that the pipe would split. If you are asking about Sch 40 DWV or ABS pipe, then I don't think it would.
