When it comes to clogs, there are many situations and reasons why our lines are backed up and it’s not just at our house either. While we deal with hair, soap, and other blockages, a restaurant may be experiencing intense grease, rags, and certain foods that give them grief and a backed up drain. Snakes are extremely useful when it comes to these situations and they’re made out of hard metal with wire brushing and a metal fixture at the end that can dig into whatever is causing a clog and pull it out and break it down. While hand-cranked snakes are always good to have around for those minor stoppages, mechanized snakes are exponentially better in terms of length and power.
Mechanized Snakes and Hand-Cranked Snakes
In terms of length, the mechanized snake is wrapped around a spool like a garden hose. Once aimed, it can shoot down way longer than a standard hand-cranked snake. With the amount of horsepower a mechanized snake has, it pretty much does all the hard work for you in terms of breaking things up and puncturing whatever is clogging your lines. With a traditional hand auger, you’ll never know what kind of obstruction you’re up against and must be prepared to start pushing and digging hard.
Another great perk of having a mechanized snake is having interchangeable heads to match the problem you’re having. Here at Will’s All Pro, our professionals like to camera your line first to find out what kind of obstruction we’re dealing with. We can then adjust and choose a snake head that fits the problem and ensure your plumbing stays clear and flowing.
