Answer by  kipcat (1964)

A plumbing snake is a term applied to a tool that is made of spring steel that is inserted into the pipe until it pushes the clog through. Larger, motor-driven snakes are required for main line clogs. These snakes normally have a cutter on the end to help clear roots. Toilet has to be removed to use a snake.
