You’ve tried everything. Drano. Plunging. Flushing again. Nothing works. When these methods fail, it’s time to book professional snaking services. A plumbing snake - also called a sewer snake, drain auger, toilet jack or electric eel - can be effective against stubborn clogs. It works by shoving debris out of the way, restoring flow through the pipe.
SERVIZ Plumbing Pros use many different types of augers, including
Power Augers - with a built in motor and easier to use than hand-cranked augers.
Flat Tape Augers - for smaller pipes, two inches or less in diameter.
Cable or Drain Augers - hand-cranked augers that turn inside the pipe. Debris gets hooked onto the cable for retrieval and disposal.
Toilet Augers - designed specifically for toilets, used most often when a plunger is ineffective.
