The Great American Plumbing Co, Inc has been in the drain cleaning business since 1984, when Mark McGinnis Founded the very first locally owned and operated residential plumbing and drain service in Santa Clara County. Today the technology hasn't changed much from the time Electric Snakes were first patented in 1936. The high powered electric snake still maintains its name as the leader in drain cleaning equipment. The snake cleans the inside of a drain by being inserted in the drainpipe that has the stoppage in the area of the stoppage, and then uses a set of blades at the end of the snake. The high powered blades at the end of the snake cut their way through the stoppage to clear the drain. Once the drain is cleared, the technician will continue to work the drain back and forth several times, ensuring that the stoppage is fully cleared and that the inside of the pipe is properly scoured clean. The blades on the snake are set to the diameter of the pipe so that it's able to cut away debris and sludge to the walls of the pipe. This helps reduce the chances of the stoppage reoccurring.
