At Trade Counter Direct, we offer a range of manual, electric, and cordless drain snakes to suit a variety of needs. One of our top-selling drain snakes is the Milwaukee M12BDC8-0 Drain Cleaning Snake - Bare Unit - Drain Snake, which is a cordless drain snake that is powerful and easy to use. Whether you need a basic manual drain snake for clearing minor blockages or a more advanced electric or cordless model for tackling larger or more complex blockages, we have the tools you need to get the job done.
Manual drain snakes, also known as hand augers, are operated by hand and are typically used for clearing small blockages in sinks, showers, and toilets. They consist of a long, flexible rod with an auger or hook on the end, which is inserted into the drain and rotated or pushed through the pipe to loosen and remove the blockage. Manual drain snakes are portable and easy to use, making them a convenient tool for clearing minor blockages.
Electric drain snakes, also known as power augers, are powered by electricity and are typically used for clearing larger blockages in longer or more complex pipes. They consist of a long, flexible rod with an auger or other attachment on the end, as well as a motor that powers the auger. Electric drain snakes are more powerful and efficient than manual drain snakes, but they can be more expensive and require access to an electrical outlet.
Cordless drain snakes, also known as battery-powered drain snakes, are a more recent innovation that combines the portability of manual drain snakes with the power of electric drain snakes. These tools are powered by a battery and do not require access to an electrical outlet, making them an ideal choice for clearing blockages in hard-to-reach or outdoor pipes.
