sewer snake drain cleaningA drain snake, also called a sewer snake, plumbing snake, rooter machine or drain auger, is a device used to unclog drains.

A drain snake is a long, flexible metal cable with the capability of modifying the attachment that goes on the end based on the job requirements.

For example, a sewer clog that is caused by root intrusion will need a blade attachment for cutting, while a sewer clog caused by paper towels would require an auger attachment for retrieving.

Either powered by hand or electrically, a drain snake is rotated in a downward spiral into a drain until it reaches a clog, then the snake ideally displaces the clog as if “chewing” away at it.

There are several different types of sewer snakes for home and commercial use.
