Both methods can be effective in their own right, but deciding which method to use depends on the circumstances of the plumbing blockage.

What Are The Benefits Of Snaking?
Snaking is the term used when plumbers insert an auger into a clogged drain or pipe. As the auger is extended, it breaks up obstructions and eliminates the clog. The advantages of snaking include the following. It's most effective with simple clogs that haven’t yet hardened against pipe walls.
- It’s tried and true. Snaking has been used by Sunshine Plumbing and Gas and other plumbing companies for decades because it works.
- Easy removal of minor clogs. Snaking isn't overly intrusive to commercial and residential plumbing systems, which reduces the risk of fragile pipes.
- It can reveal larger plumbing issues. A snake relies on pressure to break up and remove clogs. If it fails, you likely have a larger plumbing issue at hand.
