Plumbing – Milpitas – Clearing a Clogged Drain with a Toilet Snake
This article is part of a mini-series, whose lead article is Clearing a Clogged Drain.
As the name implies, a toilet snake is made specially for clearing clogged toilets.
As you can see, it has a long handle and a fairly short flexible part.
You insert the flexible part all the way into the toilet (yes it’s gross, but someone has to do it).
You then hold the handle, and turn the crank as the flexible part moves deeper into the toilet drain.
The action of the flexible piece turning around clears the clog.
The single most important part of this job is to have a large plastic trash bag in the bathroom with you so as soon as the snake comes out of the toilet it goes into the bag. Then immediately take it outside and hose it off.
It is admittedly a gross job, but when your toilet needs to be unclogged, someone has to do it.
