BAAM! Drain Blaster Cleaner
Many plumbing jobs are best left to professionals indeed, but sometimes the problem is too simple that calling a professional plumber will be a waste of money. A clogged sink, for example, is not actually difficult to solve as long as you know what the culprit is. In many cases, the clog is an accumulation from everyday stuff such as soap, food residue, grease/oil, toilet paper, toys, etc. A plumbing auger is probably the most common tool you can find in any hardware store, but now you can also try BAAM! Drain Blaster Cleaner, an easy-to-use tool designed to get rid of clogs using nothing but air pressure.
Features of BAAM! Drain Blaster Cleaner:
Hydro-jet is a sophisticated plumbing tool. It uses motorized water pump to deliver high pressure water through specifically designed nozzle inserted inside a plumbing pipe. Drain Blaster Cleaner is intended for small-to-medium sized sink using only air pressure. The tool is small and light, which means you don’t have to haul an entire motorized pump on a crate just to get it to the worksite.
Pumping for 25 times will generate about 33 psi. Air pressure at this level should easily flush a clogged sink, toilet, and drains without any chemical additives. BAAM! Drain Blaster Cleaner comes with 2 rubber adapters: small adapter for small sinks of up to 1.5-inch and a large adapter for any drain opening sized more than 1.5-inch. The rubber at the tip of the tool creates perfect seal to optimize air pressure.
- Pros: Portable heavy duty drain cleaner based on the principal of hydro-jet. It is designed for home use, and you don’t need any plumber certification to operate a Drain Blaster Cleaner. Another good thing is that the air flow can be reversed for shower drain as well.
- Cons: The entire body is made of plastic and rubber. Most (if not all) plumbing tools should be durable and made of stronger materials to withstand vigorous treatments. Nonetheless, BAAM! Drain Blaster Cleaner is an overall well-built tool that can last for many years with proper use.
Not every plumbing job requires professional, and BAAM! Drain Blaster Cleaner makes it obvious that every homeowner can at least try to get rid of clogs in the sink without risking any further damage. It is easy to operate, and can give noticeable results in an instant. In the end, Drain Blaster Cleaner encourages you to save money by not paying for something you can do by yourself.
