Can a plumbers drain Snake equipment cause a leak?
The short answer is definitely. Beyond a shadow off doubt. We have conducted a drain camera inspection on hundreds of pipes over the years, and diagnosed so many pipes where we can physically see the damage caused by a plumbers snake.
The damage usually occurs in the elbow joints and specifically 90degree bends. We recommend using a high pressure drain cleaning machine to clear your drain pipes since this does the same work with water which does not scrape against the inner diameter of the pipe.
When using a drain cleaning company, we recommend http://block-busters.co.za. The reason i say this is not just because they are the best, but because the owner is my brother and i am biased.
