Fresh from the 2005 National Hardware Show:
Kleer-Drain

This tool is fantastic at clearing clogged drains when even a plunger or chemicals won't do the trick. It operates on a single CO2 cartridge which, with one push downward like on a bicycle pump, sends a powerful burst of air through the clogged pipe--taking anything and everything with it. If the drain is particularly clogged, a small vinyl disk is inserted before use, which collects the compressed air and releases all of the pressure in one powerful "ball." Using one of these disks, we've even seen a wad of rags which had been jammed into a sink drain cleared in a fraction of a second using this tool. It is great at releasing clogged toilets and even outdoor patio drains with ease. It comes with four CO2 cartridges and six vinyl Power Disks™.

The Kleer-Drain retails for $29.98 and can now be found at The Home Depot, Do-It-Best, and Right Way home improvement centers, as well as direct from the source, at www.kleerdrain.com.
