Finally, for really tough jobs, you can purchase a drain snake, also known as a drain auger. A drain snake is a long, flexible metal device that bends around the corners of your pipes. You push the snake gently but firmly into the pipe until you reach the clog, then you turn the crank handle to break through the clog. Remove the snake periodically to clear any debris that gets wrapped around the head.
