What Is A Drain Cleaner?
Drain cleaners can be grouped into two categories: device, or chemical.

Chemical drain cleaners, handheld drain augers, plungers, home remedy drain cleaners, and air burst drain cleaners are planned for this reason.

Sewer jetters and electric drain cleaners are mainly used for this purpose.
