What are drain snakes and drain augers?
These age-old tools are the basis of fixing plumbing problems. When a clog strikes in a pipe, a snake or an auger can be used to find the cause of the obstruction and either remove it or force the clog to flush out through the plumbing system.
Consider a bathroom sink drain that has gotten progressively clogged with hair. When the pipes below the sink cannot take it anymore, water will begin ponding in the sink and you’ll realize you need to fix the clogged pipe.
How does a drain snake or auger work?
With this scenario in mind, you have two choices: you can try to do it yourself. If you own a snake or auger, you can get it out, remove the drain cap, and start to fiddle around and try to find the clog. If you don’t have a snake handy, add another step: heading out to the DIY store to buy another expensive piece of home equipment.
Instead, you can call an experienced plumber who knows how to quickly find the clog and expertly use the snake or auger to remove the clog and get your pipes running again as good as new.
Snakes an augers aren’t complicated equipment, but if you don’t use them every day, they can be a frustrating challenge to master. If you need help with a clogged pipe, don’t set yourself a trap of trying to fix it yourself. Instead, call AAA Drain Cleaning and let our experience team use the right drain snakes or drain augers to clear the obstruction and get your water flowing again.
