Quick Start Guide:

1. Connect Water Rooter to hose.

2. Locate drain pipe exit (often near street curb). The hose with Water Rooter should be fed into pipe from this EXIT end. It is far more difficult to clear clog if you feed hose into pipe from the "incoming" downspout end.

3. Feed hose into drain pipe to point of clog, secure hose in place with heavy object and turn water on full blast.

NOTE: Water Rooter shoots powerful jets of water in multiple directions. To prevent injury to face or eyes, water should NOT be turned on before Water Rooter is inside drain pipe.

4. When drain pipe exit water starts flowing clear (usually 10-20 minutes), turn off water and pull hose out from pipe.

5. Test by flowing water into gutter downspout to confirm that pipe is clean.

Tip: Clean gutters on your home regularly to prevent debris from entering drain pipe. If your gutters tend to accumulate a lot of leaves, pine needles, twigs, etc., flush drain pipes with Water Rooter annually to prevent future clogs.

Satisfaction Guaranteed! If Water Rooter fails to open clog in drain pipe, return for refund.
