In the video I tried to present a fair overview of the Drain Blaster's strengths as well as it's limitations. I hope it helps you make an informed decision. I have more on this product and some pretty effective other drain clearing tools on my website.
The clear p-trap shown in the video is the PermaFlow Replacement Drain. PermaFLOW Never-Clog Drain

Update - 02-27-2011
This Drain Blaster stopped working after about eight months of use. The seals seem to eventually begin to slip out of place inside the main chamber causing it to lose pressure. With a single-piece plastic housing, you can't open it to repair or replace the seals. When the seals go, the device goes... into the trash.Read more ›
A few tips: 1) make sure there is water in the drain over the drain opening (It is not the air blast that opens the drain, it is the air blast pushing the water column that opens the drain)
2)Don't be afraid to repeat the process 8 -10 times or more - it will work eventually.
3) Most of the negative reviews are due to operator error. They say "I pumped it twenty times..." the instructions say "pump 20 -30 times" give it the full 30 if lower pressure blasts don't work first, and make sure they are full strokes (the plunger gets quite stiff as you keep pumping, I'd guess the last few pumps take over 60 pounds pressure on the handle)
4) When you position the blaster in the drain and pull the trigger, you really have to lean on the handle, you want all the force pushing down into the drain, not pushing the blaster up and away.
I had a stopped bathtub drain that would not clear up with a shop vac, Turbo Snake, plunger, Cobra Zip-It, and a traditional plumber's snake.
This was my last attempt before calling the plumber and it worked perfectly on the fourth try and the drain is now flowing better than it ever has.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I would NOT use this on a drain that has been recently treated with Draino (lye based) or Acid based drain openers because it will get everywhere and you will get burned. I would also wear saftey goggles in case debris come flying back at you.
On the first attempt I plugged up the tub's overflow hole with a wet rag and hit the drain with the Drain Buster 650 (20 pumps). The wet rag that was stuffed into the overflow shot out across the tub and water shot about ten feet hitting the window of my bathroom.
On the second attempt I held the wet rag in place with one hand and used my other hand to pull the trigger of the Drain Buster 650 (20 pumps). I heard some gurgling in the drain and knew I was on the right path.
The third try was done using 25 pumps and the water started to drain.
The fourth try was done with 30 pumps and the water was rushing down the drain.
I really love this product. It turned a nightmare of a clogged drain into a smooth operator. I would recommend this to anyone that is having problems with slow or stopped up drains.

It really works. Special note: Be sure to place an old towel over the drain as it might cause backlash. You DON'T want to clean that stuff up.Published 15 months ago by Buyer vs
I won't give this any stars. We tried it once and had nothing but trouble. It did not do what it was supposed to. So we gave it away to a mission.Published 23 months ago by Brian P
