A Drain Snake is a term used for drain cleaning with a cable drain cleaning machine also called a roto rooter. A drain snake is necessary when you have a clogged drain or sewer that needs to be cleared at the source of the problem. This can be the result of something accidently dropped down the toilet, Roots or a build-up over time of solid waste in the drain. Either way, this is not a do-it-yourself project. Since most professionals recommend cleaning out the main drain about every two years anyway, a clogged drain is the perfect time to schedule a drain cleaning with a drain snake as well as a routine maintenance check on your pipes, drains, and sewers. If you haven't ever scheduled someone to look at your pipes and drains, this is probably a good idea.
Drain Cleaning using a drain snake isn't something you should try yourself. As far as a clogged toilet goes, most people will try the plunger and coat hanger method first, and many will go as far as to buy a 'home strength'drain snake or auger to save money. If you read the directions for the plumbing snake, it is very clear that you need to have towels ready to clean up a very ugly mess if you don't know what you are doing, and the directions are also very clear about the danger of operating a drain snake machine without any experience. The last piece of advice that a D.I.Y. plumbing web site will give you, before they have you going down the vent stack in the roof, is to call a plumber.
The same is true with clogged sinks. The first instinct is to buy some hazardous liquid chemicals to pour down the drain and then when that doesn't work, make an attempt to try some plumbing drain snake on your own. Do yourself a huge favor and call the plumbing experts at George Salet Plumbing. We provide free estimates and fast, reliable service.
