Clogged drains can cause serious problems for homeowners, no matter how diligently they clean their drains. Material buildup can cause blockages in sinks, toilets and showers. Many homeowners start with a plunger. If that fails, they will often resort to buying drain cleaners at the local hardware store. If none of these methods work, it’s time to call a professional drain cleaning company. They may use a Hydro-Jet or a plumbing snake to solve the problem.
This tool is made from a long, metal tube with a cable inside and attached blades. It is usually hand-cranked. To get the blade into the drain, the crank is turned. When the snake reaches the blockage, you will feel resistance. You can then pull the snake out by turning the crank until the clog is gone.

The water will then be pushed through the nozzle to create a strong stream of water to clean your drain.
