Plumbing – San Jose – Clearing a Clogged Drain with a Drain Bladder
This article is part of a mini-series, whose lead article is Clearing a Clogged Drain.
If for whatever reason, the method of clearing a clogged drain with a garden hose results in too much water splashing back, there is a device you can buy to help.
A drain bladder is a device you attach to the end of the garden hose, then stick into the drain pipe coming out of the wall under the sink.
Although technically this procedure can be done with one person, I strongly recommend two.
One at the drain, the other at the hose faucet outside.
When the hose is turned on, the water rushes into the bladder causing it to expand.
It expands until it is fully fills the drain pipe.
The water then has only one place to go, and that is down the drain pipe.
The force of the water pressure clears the clog.
