The easiest way to clean your drains

This Is Impressive

We have seen our fair share of nasty stuff around here. I mean, we are in the business of pulling clogs out of sinks. We revel in videos and pictures of what our intrepid customers yank out of their drains. But, every once in awhile, we are presented with proof of the effectiveness of Zip-It that even we have a hard time looking at.

So here it is. From Michelle from Minnesota, a one-pull clog that ranks as one of the largest (especially when considering diameter) gobs of goo we have ever laid witness to.

Michelle, we applaud your fortitude and thank you for sharing.

    Are you sure that wasn’t a rat you pulled up? It works great by the way!

    This is the best, the very best product I purchased for $2.48 at Lowe’s. The first time I put the Zip It down my drain, the water flowed smoothly! No more baking soda and vinegar! I will use this product in every drain in my home. And it is made in America!

    hilarious! I have the exact same slate tile shower bottom as you and I pulled out one of those MONSTERS from my drain. I thought my husband sent a picture of my CATCH. I think mine was actually bigger! My husband said the clean out pipe was okay out front, HA!

    Oh my goodness! Are you sure that wasn’t an actual rat that had somehow gotten into the pipes? Lord have mercy!

    If I were to pull that out of my drain, I would be very surprised. Which reminds me that I’ll have to do something to unclog my shower drain. I’ve tried a do-it-yourself thing and it didn’t work. What would be some things I could ask a plumber before they come out? I’m wondering what could be down there. http://www.pmurraycontractors.ca/en

    Wow, that’s pretty disgusting. Her shower must’ve been completely clogged. I’m surprised any water went down it at all! Seeing this makes me think it might be time to get my drains cleaned. I don’t want this to happen to me!

    This thing is Amazing!!! I picked up one at Home Depot. I ran it down the drain and pulled out a huge plug of hair in about 5 seconds. I would post a picture but it was really really YUCKY looking!! Don’t waste your money on expensive drain cleaners. Don’t pull your sink apart. And please do not waste your money on a plumber. Get this. It works.

      I couldn’t have said it better myself. Thank you! (By the way, we will always accept a picture – regardless of yukiness)

    Wow that is an absolutely disgusting picture you have there! I wonder how heavy that all was and what that smelled like! I work at Lowes and can say that these really are great for the price although sometimes in bigger cases, you need to hire a drainage contractor who has all of the right tools! Thank you for sharing the article and the information!

      Yes, when these monsters are pulled out, people can’t help but take a picture. And we completely agree: Zip-It is the first line of defense and is not the proper tool for all jobs. When a clog gets past the stopper mechanism, call in a pro!

    I can not believe that that much hair was down the drain. I think that it is so important to unclog your drain and clean it frequently. That way you can avoid messes like this.
