Why the Right Sewer Snake Replacement Blade is Important
Posted by Lori Troyer on October 3rd, 2017
If you clean drains professionally, you know that you need to be wary of any possible problem and make sure you ready with a solution. You could be unclogging a residential drain line of grease, or dealing with a sewage main blocked by tree roots. You don’t want to run into problems when you’re tackling these situations, and the only way to do that is to stay prepared. Making sure that you buy the right replacement sewage blade is imperative to planning for trouble.
Having one size Sewer Snake Replacement Blade is going to leave you totally unprepared. You need to be ready for anything, and one size isn’t going to cut it. Blades are customized for different needs; some blades are used for cutting and some for scraping. In most cases, you want to get the water flowing a little through the blockage before you can really get rid of it all. In these instances, the best choice for the job is a smaller blade that can open part of the blockage. After this is done, you’ll want the larger blades in order to clear the line completely and fully unclog the pipe.
What About the Shape of the Blade?
Most often, the clogged pipe, or type of job will dictate the shape of Sewer Snake Replacement Blade you will use to clear the pipe. Different shaped blades are better or worse for different scenarios. Luckily, Duracable manufactures a variety of different blade shapes to work in any situation. All of these varieties are sold in a range of sizes running from 1-inch blades for the smallest lines, up to 16-inch blades for the biggest. Our shapes include elliptical, offset, u-bottom, pear, round, single, paddle, etc. You can choose between serrated or plain blades; we’re all about having a wide range of choices here at Duracable.
So what kinds of blades are used for what kinds of jobs? Serrated blades are used to saw through any obstruction. That makes these perfect for roots. Typically, a single saw is what you will want to commence opening a drain. This will lay down the groundwork the more intensive blades. Once you have made the initial strike, these tougher blades will finish up the job. Round shaped and u-shaped blades are perfect for the final cleaning pass as they clean to the edge of the pipe. When grease is your main enemy, cones or paddles will be your best friends. These make it easy to “scoop” the grease out of the pipes. Every different shape has a specific purpose, and it is important to choose blades that are best for the jobs that you’ll be working on.
