Drain Snakes and Augers

Serving Portland OR &  Vancouver WA

If you have a clog that refuses to budge, it is time to look into a permanent cure. Drain snakes and augers are clog removal equipment that can release even the worst plumbing stoppages. At AAA Drain Cleaning, we are specialists in using this type of equipment to get your household drains running freely.

What is a plumbing snake?

A snake is a device designed to help grip and remove small objects or push through soft clogs. It has a cable that reels out into the drain pipe and a corkscrew end to catch and pull or push the clog. The smaller versions meant for small pipes are all handheld and can rid clogs in

  • Toilets
  • Sinks
  • Tubs and showers
  • Washing machines
  • Dishwashers

Pouring an over-the-counter chemical remedy down your drain pipes is not always the best solution for clogs. With tough pipe clogs, it will make absolutely no difference. Additionally, chemical drain cleaners can be harmful to your health, especially if they are used in kitchen sinks. Drain augers and snakes are the next level of treatment to try in getting your pipes open and usable again.

What is a plumbing auger?

An auger is a tool used for removing obstructions from a drain or toilet. You should hire a professional plumber to clear clogs when

  • You are unfamiliar with the use of augers and snakes
  • You are unsure of the type of equipment needed to clear the clog
  • You have no idea where the clog is situated within the pipes
  • The clog is major and you need the plumbing working fast
