Types of plumber's snakes
Hand auger / hand spinner
Hand augers are useful for clearing sink and bathtub drains. They are unsuitable for sending through flush toilets, because the wire might damage the bowl; also, flush toilets have relatively large drain pipes in which the narrow snake can be become tangled. (A 1?4-inch cable, for example, should never be used in a drain with a calibre of more than two inches.)
Closet auger / toilet auger
The closet auger (named after water closet) feeds a relatively short auger through a hook-shaped length of metal tubing. The hook shape makes it easier to feed the auger into the toilet. A plastic boot on the end of the auger protects the finish of the visible porcelain. Since most toilet clogs occur in the trap built into the bowl, the short cable is sufficient to break up or retrieve the greater majority of clogs.
Independent hydraulic works carried out in the homes
Home handymen are very fond carry out the various repair work. Therefore, it happens also that alone make minor repairs or improvements hydraulic. The houses usually they exchange seals and pipes, which has already gathered a lot of dirt and hair and suds. Similarly, in flats, where sometimes you also need to fix the toilet flush. In addition, home handymen often deal with repairs washing machines standing in a bathroom or dishwashers standing in the kitchen. So they can save some money and demonstrate their efficiency in front of family. But keep in mind that the performance of such work will be possible only if equipped house there are small seals and hydraulic tools.
Conducting self-activity of the hydraulic
Small plants hydraulic predominantly take orders for minor plumbing work. They can be associated with connecting new sanitary facilities or carrying out small repairs. All such work can be carried out also by plumbers self-employed. You just have to reckon with the fact that the services contract with an independent plumber probably will prolong the work carried out. However, this should not affect their quality, and sometimes it turns out that the plumber running his own business applies doubly to perform the outsourced tasks themselves. They may rely on both the exchange of a faulty seal and at the connection of the new tap.
