The modern day electric plumbers snake was invented by Samuel Blanc over 80 years ago. It dramatically changed the plumbing landscape, replacing the plunger, and making it easier than ever to clear clogs and quickly resume water flow. While today's snakes are more powerful and easier to use, the basic functionality hasn't changed all that much. There is a  heavy-duty cable with a small auger attachment on the end. As the cable enters the drain or pipe, the motor rotates it down the pipe. As it rotates downward, the auger attachment imbeds itself into the foreign object and pulls it out when the cable is withdrawn. In cases where the clog is more severe, the end attachment breaks up the object allowing it to pass through the drain. In instances where there is no foreign object present and the clog is a result of built up matter, like mineral deposits or cooking fat, the end attachment flails around the inside of the pipe. It scrapes and loosens the accumulated matter and restores normal water flow.

Recommended Cable Dimensions

Drain Size  

Cable Size

3/4 - 1 1/4"

1/4 or 5/16"

1 - 1/2"

5/16 or 3/8"

2 - 2 1/2"

5/16 or 3/8"

* A good rule of thumb is that a 1/4" cable should
never be used in a drain larger than 2"

Hand-Held vs. Heavy-Duty Drum vs. Camera Sewer Snakes

 Hand-Held Snakes (Augers)


Hand-held snakes, or augers are perfect for clearing clogs
from small inside lines like drains and sinks. They are NOT intended for toilets as they can damage the bowl or get stuck
in the drain pipe beneath. They are easy to use and require nothing more than a pair of gloves and an electrical outlet.

Heavy-Duty Drum Snakes

  Our heavy-duty drum snakes come with powerful electric motors that help cut through and break up stubborn objects such a tree roots. They come equipped with interchangeable end attachments for different diameters and cleaning applications. These powerful snakes can easily break copper
or plastic pipes if not used correctly.

 Camera Sewer Snakes

  Our E-cam sewer snake units come equipped with a color camera attachment at the end of the cable for easy
inspection of sewer lines from 3" to 10" in diameter. Take
the guess work out of the equation
by performing a real time inspection from the inside perspective. Save time and money.
