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

Well, before you go shelling out for a hundred-dollar-an-hour plumber, get yourself a closer look at the situation with the Depstech Wireless Endoscope. It's on sale for $29, or $8 off, with on-page coupon at Amazon. That’s a 22 percent savings. And it's not only affordable; it's popular too! It's Amazon's #1 borescope, earning an impressive five-star rating from nearly 9,000 reviewers.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Take it easy; you can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

This ingenious gizmo attaches to your phone and features an 11.5-inch snake cable and 2.0-megapixel HD camera with accompanying light, allowing you to see inside even the smallest of spaces. Whether it’s hair, cement or something else entirely, the endoscope (which is, of course, treated with waterproofing) will help you figure out what’s causing the blockage.

And it's not just for the bathroom — truth is, you never know when this will come in handy. “This thing rocks,” raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “Really impressed. Helped me unclog my dryer vent. Well worth it!” See?

The light is adjustable...and indispensable. “My issue...drain flies. Once turned on, the light was bright enough to ‘see’ down my drain," said another five-star reviewer. "This product helped me identify where those little ‘you know whats’ were located.”

The handy little device is Wi-Fi-enabled, which allows you to turn your Android smartphone or iPhone into a video monitor to capture footage via the Depstech app.

“This endoscope worked exactly as I’d hoped — it allowed me to look inside a floor safe with a stuck door (via a small hole where the handle used to be),” said a resourceful shopper. “Sadly, I found exactly what Geraldo Rivera found when he opened Al Capone’s Vault — bupkis.”
