Has anyone here used one of those 50 ft. hoses that attaches to a pressure washer and it snakes a drain using high pressure water jets? The attachment I am referring to is made by a company called Clog Hog. I saw a video on You Tube and I am wondering if this really works and with what type of drains? Will it flush out a clogged 3 or 4 inch sewer line at the outside clean-out port?

One of my LL friends not on this site has one and loves it. I don't yet have a pressure washer, so I don't have one. --141.129.x.xx

YES I have the 100 foot clog hog and I LOVE the dang gummed thang! It is not a snake it is a jet.
"My plumber is begging me not to buy my own plumbing snake."
I'll bet he is! Why? Because he knows he will lose business! My clog hog is one of the top 3 tools I've bought in in my LL experience. I will not be without my clog hog again. It's luv I tell yah. Luv of saving me big bucks and head aches. --66.214.x.xxx

Okay Josh, you are having a love affair with your Clog Hog.
Will it clean out the tough clogs in the main sewer line between the house and the street? Think baby wipes and all the other things women flush down the toilet.
What GPM or PSI is your pressure washer? --69.244.x.xxx

I gladly pay for plumber to clean lines, snake or Clog Hog I don't care. This seriously infinges on my freedom. Not rocket science so I hire what brians it does require and gives me time with my family or to find other deals. 2nd best thing I did after hiring someone to do the cleaning. --75.160.xxx.xxx

One good thing about the jet is that it won't kink up and rip off your fingers. I believe that the higher pressure washers 2000lbs and above do the best job. Being pretty simple to use , if it's roots or something that the Jet won't clear then you can call the plumber with the rooter and let him take his life in his hands (LOL) I'd say that protective gear is still important cause a 2000lb jet of water is pretty hard on skin and eyes --108.220.xxx.xx

On weekends, a plumber's hourly rates can double in my town. When your tenant has sewage backing up in the tub,...well someone has to do something. Opening the clean-out port is one solution but with a Clog Hog I could at least make an attempt at un-clogging the drain. --69.244.x.xxx

I have a guy who charges $100 for a serious drain clean out. The sewer clean out is pretty much all he does these days while his brother does general plumbing. Doesn't matter if it is a simple in and out with the snake or takes 3 hours of cutting roots, $100 most of the time. He does 3 - 5 of them per day, 5 days a week. He only comes out on weekends for regular customers (like me thank goodness!) Makes better money in a week than I do, but mine isn't as messy.
My son wants to be an engineer. I'm encouraging him to consider plumbing.

My Clog hog has blown through a drain stoppage that my Cadillac of snakes/rooter didn't do the job. My presser washer is 3500 psi craftsman I bought it off of craigslist for $275 gently used.
Plumbing has been one of my highest expenses. It has come down over the years. Like anything a good business plan for handling problem areas pays off. Clog hog is one of my tools to achieve my goals.

Hi Roy, I bought one a couple of months ago. I've only used it once, on a drain that was running slow past the stub out, but not fully clogged. It blew right through it about 3 feet in.
I've used mine with the new 1800psi electric PW.
BTW - I got my Karcher working again after buying the new one. Karcher is slick, then put their screws down these really tubes so a regular torx screwdriver isn't long enough. But I happened to run across a set at the 99 cent store that fit perfectly. LOL
Anyway I got the 100' Clog Hog, mine I can use on electric or powered washers. I have (I think) a 2,800 psi with a Honda motor. I don't use it much, as the electric are usually easier to set up.
The basic CH is good for pipes from about 1 1/2 inches (with minimal curves) to 3-4". The larger the diameter the less power you will get.
If you have to clear like a 6 inch main line you will need a truck mounted like 6,000 psi commercial system. But for average cleaning and "gunk" clogs I expect good results.
One last tip - go to Wal-Mart and you can buy a round "cord reel" for about $6.00. The CH rolls up perfectly on this. then I have a bag I stick it in along with the fitting and gloves.
I never go anywhere without my clog hog and my Rigid power snake. And my zip it tools. --166.128.xxx.xxx

Thanks LL in AZ,...how could I survive in this business without you? :)
I have a Honda engine 2,500 psi. pressure washer. I will order the 50ft. Clog Hog soon. I am not trying to fire my plumber but I do know he likes to go fishing on the weekends. I can tell when he answers his cell phone from a bass boat,..he starts giving me instructions over the phone on how to unclog a drain. --69.244.x.xxx
