A lot of products promise to clear out pipes without the help of a plumber so Consumer Reports put those claims to the test and found most weren't effective.

But a mechanical device called Drain FX worked well. The device attaches to the faucet and uses pressurized water to clean the pipes.

Consumer Reports also tested out a $3 traditional plunger as a comparison to the device.
