The standard uses a rating system called minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV). The scale goes from 1 to 16, with an inefficient filter having a low number and an efficient filter having a large number. These ratings are based on the HVAC filter’s capacity for removing airborne particles.

Most blockages do not require a hydro jet drain cleaner. A handyman or plumbing company with a drain snake or electrical cable cleaner can handle most clogs.

These clogs always return because they must be completely removed and average drain snakes are not capable of this level of cleaning. It will only be a matter of time before the blockage builds back up and clogs your pipes again.
