The easiest way to clean your drains

The Devo Reference

The Devo Reference
The good folks at Shelterrific.com channeled the famed song from Devo to exhort our favorite tool: When a clogged drain comes along, you must zip-it Now Zip-it! Zip-it good! Sorry — as a big DEVO fan, I had to. But seriously, can we talk about how brilliant the Zip-it is? Yes, you most certainly can! And for those of you who may now have that [...]

This Old House Posts New Euphemism

This Old House Posts New Euphemism
We’ve heard the wad of hair and goo that is pulled from your drain with a Zip-It called many things. “Rat” most commonly. There has been a few “Cousin It”s. And let us not forget my personal favorite: “sasquatch”. But now This Old House has given us a new one: I pushed Zip-It down the drain of our sho [...]

Real People. Actual Results.

Real People. Actual Results.
While we take the art of unclogging drains very seriously, it cannot be denied that the process is a bit nasty. Through the years we have been blessed with customers who are demented enough to video themselves using Zip-It. The videos contain all the nervous laughter, “oh my God” first rushes, and horrors-of-the-realities that one [...]

Zip-It Gets 88% Approval Rating
Zip-It has been officially recommended by ConsumerPla.net and for that we are truly grateful. How do you fix a clogged sink or tub drain? Chemicals, Snake, Auger? Call a plumber?

The Family Handyman

The "Rat"
Zip-It was mentioned in the Family Handyman. Apparently Mary needed to unclog some drains for a party she was hosting. How thoughtful! If you’ve ever pulled a 2-lb., rodent-like glob of hair (mixed with an odorous combination of toothpaste, nail clippings and nameless slime) from your drain, you’ve experience the same gaggy feelin [...]

Do You Have What It Takes?

Do You Have What It Takes?
Justin apparently DOES have what it takes – as long as he doesn’t have to touch the rest of it with his hand (That doesn’t sound very champion-like). Good stuff almost immediately at :03. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id [...]

Reader’s Digest Recommends Zip-...

Reader’s Digest Recommends Zip-It
In a lovely little article in the March 2011 issue of Reader’s Digest Zip-It is touted as one way to solve 5 sticky Situations: Get rid of clogged drains. The Family Handyman recommends a “cheap, fast, chemical-free” unclogger called Zip-it (available at Walmart, Walgreens, Ace, and Lowe’s), a jagged plastic wand with “teeth” you insert [...]

Fun With Wads of Hair

Fun With Wads of Hair
This video is rather long (9:20), but the videographer seems to be enjoying herself, so she can take as long as she wants, as far as I’m concerned. She pulls out one massive clump of hair, and then seems rather disappointed. I don’t know what she was hoping to find. She she be proud of that thing. She also makes some hair dance, O [...]

Teaching The Children

Teaching The Children
This is a very quick video – a whopping 17 seconds. The Zip-It is already in the drain, so the video is pretty much just pulling the clog out. In the background you can hear a child’s reaction. It’s good to know that future generations will live in a world where it is easy to clean a drain. Good stuff at :08. (function(d, [...]

The Lingering Shot

The Lingering Shot
This guy doesn’t say much, which is okay. He doesn’t need to. The subtle gasps tell us all we really need to know. Also, after he pulls the clog out of his tub at the :33 mark, he brings it in for a nice close up. He also cleans out his sink. A good double whammy in one video. He pulls that out at about 1:02. Nice work! I also fee [...]
