Is a great drill. They use it mining.

When my irrigation system was installed they used what looked like a high pressure garden hose to get under my sidewalk. That said. In a clog situation you don't want to add insult to injury by adding a boatload of water to your clog. Plumbers have a device that uses high pressure water that can attack the clog without adding an abundance of new water to add to your mess.

That is not to say you can not stick a garden hose down your toilet then turn on the water. However you could be setting yourself up for back-flow which risks contaminating your potable water. If that happened, it would be your internal plumbing that becomes damaged and you could get deathly ill. Also if it gets stuck, sends the clog into your vent pipes or creates any additional leaks, You could be in for an eye popping invoice.

Speaking of the "Plumber's Secret" I have seen it on ebay.
