More Tools To Clear Your Pipes

If your standard plunger or hand snake just won't handle your drain problem, then you still have other tools to use that will clear your pipes. For the toilet, consider a long handled closet auger. A long handled closet auger is a tool much like its name. You use an extended handle with a wire to get through and break obstructions in your toilet. If you're looking for still more tools to clear your pipes, consider a power snake. A motorized version of the hand snake, a power snake is a larger drain cleaning tool which will allow you to reach farther and give you more control.
