Old Apr 16th, 2010, 06:32 PM        Plumbing and drains clog
I thought about putting this in General Discussions but really it belongs here until RoG gets old enough to have home repair issues.

Anyways, we have a drain clog from the washing mashine and it overflows of a medium load. I snaked it and it clogged up into a full blown clog that fills up the kitchen sink. I've been trying to work it out for 3 days now and went looking for a longer electric snake to buy instead of a paying for a plumber.

I saw this http://www.homedepot.com/Building-Ma...atalogId=10053



I bought a different brand from Do It Center, but chist to god fucking a donkey, this thing fucking works.

I definitely need something like that for my shower drain, but the site is down right now. What is that thing?

Medium drain cleaning bladder

This Drain Bladder clears from 1 1/2" to 3" drains by expanding in the drain and forcing water pressure through the clog. Attaches to any garden hose.

My sink gets pretty clogged up so I found this stuff that works really well. It's not crystal meth but its crystal something but it looks like crystal meth. I'll check it when I get home.

Basically it builds up pressure and till it makes a tight seal in the pipe, then it start shooting out pulse jets of water into the pipe. It might work on really slow drains but it's more for a drain that is completely fucked and you need to snake it out.

That looks and sounds like it was developed by the NAVY.

This whole drain thing has turned into a nightmare. The drain is for the washing machine and the kitchen sink. Probably the most used drain in the house. I have a feeling the main outlet to the sewer is collapsed under ground.

I think we are gonna have to send a camera down the pipe. We had a plumber use a 100 foot electric snake and it worked for 2 days, the it slowly began to close up again. It gets worse with each clearing as well.

I was going to say you can contact the landlord and have their insurance look into it too. Sometimes theres a crack like right in the middle of the piping under the lawn where snaking it makes it worse. Thats what made me think of it.
