Why Choose A Drain Snake / Plumber’s Eel?

Clogged drains are a common nuisance in homes and businesses. While there are various methods to clear blocked drains, drain snaking (also commonly referred to as a plumber’s eel or a plumber’s snake) is a reliable and efficient technique. It involves using a specialized, flexible auger (the ‘snake’) to dislodge blockages in your pipes.


What Are The Advantages Of Using A Drain Snake?

  • Safe for Pipes: Unlike harsh chemical cleaners, a drain snake is gentle on your pipes, reducing the risk of damage.
  • Effective for Minor Blockages: It’s ideal for clearing hair, soap scum, and other minor blockages.
  • Environmentally Friendly: No harmful chemicals are used, making it a greener choice.
  • Cost-Effective: Drain snaking is an affordable solution for many common clogs.


Our Drain Snaking Process

At The Local Plumber, our experienced technicians follow a meticulous process to ensure your drains are cleared effectively:

  1. Inspection: We begin with a thorough inspection of your drain using advanced cctv drain camera technology to identify the blockage and to determine whether a plumber’s snake or jet blasting is required.
  2. Choosing the Right Snake: If a plumber’s snake is required based on the blockage type and location, we select the most appropriate snake,
  3. Snaking the Drain: Our experts carefully maneuver the snake into the drain to reach and break up the blockage.
  4. Testing and Cleaning: After snaking, we test the drain flow and clean up any residue, ensuring a tidy work area.
  5. Final Inspection: We perform a final check to ensure the blockage is completely cleared and provide advice on preventing future clogs.


Common Drain Issues We Solve with Snaking

Drain snaking is versatile and can address various issues, including:

  • Slow Draining Sinks and Showers: Often caused by hair and soap buildup.
  • Kitchen Sink Blockages: Commonly due to food scraps and grease.
  • Blocked Bathroom Drains: Hair, soap scum, and small objects can cause blockages.
  • Overflowing Toilets: Usually from flushing inappropriate materials.
