The Snake

The final weapon in the armory to unclog the sink if all else fails in the snake. A snake is generally a coiled spiral auger with a handle on one end. The snake is pushed into the clog and cranked to drive it farther in to the obstruction to allow it to break up. Snakes are extremely handy when trying to reach a snake blockage deep within a drainpipe.

Here's how to use a Snake.
  1. Push the end of the snake into the drain opening and turn the handle on the drum that contains the coiled up snake.

  2. Keep pushing the snake into the drain until you feel some resistance.

  3. Rotate the snake against the blockage until it feeds freely into the pipe.

  4. Run water full force for a few minutes to be sure the drain is unclogged.
