Having a clogged bathroom or kitchen sink can be frustrating—especially if it keeps happening again and again. If you think there’s no amount of Drano that’ll solve the problem, maybe something bigger is lurking below.

That’s a 20 percent savings, while this gadget is so popular that it has earn an impressive five-star rating from more than 5,000 reviewers.

Whether it’s hair, cement or something else entirely, the endoscope (treated with waterproofing) will help you figure out what’s causing the blockage.

You’ll probably find lots of uses for the camera. “This thing rocks,” raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “Really impressed. Helped me unclog my dryer vent. Well worth it!”

And there’s a light to show the way. “At first, I could not figure out how to increase the intensity of the light,” wrote another five-star reviewer. “However, there is a little dial on the main box/end piece of the endoscope. Once turned on, the light was bright enough to ‘see’ down my drain. My issue...drain flies. This product helped me identify where those little ‘you know whats’ were located.”
