Q: It happens every holiday season — Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. — our tenants cook the turkey, pour the grease down the drain, then call me when the grease clogs the line. What drain cleaning tool would you recommend to clear the line fast so I can get back to my family?

A: The best tool for clearing clogged sinks, tubs or laundry drains is the Water Ram. It uses a burst of compressed air to create a shock wave (kinetic energy) that follows the path of the water to quickly break up the stoppage. The shock wave travels around tight bends without losing its force and knocks out the stoppage without harming pipes. 

The Water Ram is especially effective for clearing slow draining showers or bathtubs because the shock wave easily travels through drum traps that are very difficult to get through with a snake. It also works well in trailer homes that can be difficult to clear using cables because they have narrow drainlines with tight bends. 

The Water Ram has a self-contained pump and pressure gauge, so you can hit the stoppage with just the right amount of force. You get instant impact with no pressure buildup in the plumbing system. The force is transmitted through the water, so it’s not affected by stacks or vents. 

The Water Ram is a compact, lightweight tool that’s cleaner than messy snakes or dangerous chemicals. And it uses no electricity so it’s green, too.
