Clearing that clogged drain with ease.
« on: June 24, 2010, 08:44:27 PM »

Here is alittle something I thought I would share with ya'll.

I've been using one of these since I started doing appliance repair.


You can buy these at any musical instrument store.

They will fit perfect into every drain tube I have ever came across, Except the GE top mounts with the little trap on the back of the fridge.

They also fit into the Neptune super stack fabric softener hose.
