Customer Reviews
Review 1:
My parents have a problem with their kitchen sink stopping up from the disposal. They always called a plumber and I noticed all they did was use an auger to clean out the clog. They always took their time to make it look hard and $150 to $200 later they were done. When I found this item I figured it was worth a shot even though I was skeptical about being able to fix the problem since I have no plumbing experience. After connecting it to my drill and feeding all 25 feet into the outside clean out drain I felt the clog come loose. About five minutes of back and forth action with the hot water in the sink running I accomplished what would have been another fleecing from a plumber. GO FIGURE!

Review 2:
My shower has been draining extremely slowly for the last 6 months or so. I've been pouring gallon after gallon of liquid plumber down there to no avail.

This snake completely solved my problem in about 15 minutes, easily pulling several large wads of hair out of the drain pipes. The snake has the directions printed right on the drum so its easy to operate. Easily hooks up to a drill, but if you don't have one this should still work great for you.

Great value. This thing is about 100x more effective than liquid plumber / draino, for only $20. Like another reviewer said, even if you only use this thing once it's a good deal. I plan on using mine for many years, and will happily buy another should it rust over.

Ordered it to clear two clogged drains: one bathroom sink, one washing machine drain. Took about an hour or so, and it completely worked. Most more cost effective than calling a plumber, euh? Tips:

- The clogged place may be way way further down the drain than you thought. I expected it to be in the J-connector, but actually it is at least 5 feet in the wall, for the washing machine one, I used all 25 ft.

- Un-tight the screw on the tip, loos the cable for about 2-3 feet, stick in the drain, tighten the screw. Then attach the power drill and let the "whole drum" spin. Apply some pressure with your hand on the cable to push it down. Then repeat the process.

- Be prepared to drag some very nasty stuff out of the drain (hair mostly, with muddy stuff). Prepare a scissor to cut them off the cable.

- Be patient, I tried 3 times for the washing machine drain (full length in and out), and eventually it worked.

- Don't pull too hard at the end of the cable, if it disconnects from the drum, you may have to open the drum to fix it. I broke it in the end, since the cables are already dirty, I just threw the whole away. It has completed its mission, well done.

Actually you can buy the same product in local hardware store at the same price if you are in a rush.

My bathtub clogged up about a year ago, I called a plumber, and he had a similar snake, spent about 10 minutes, and took me for a little over $200. In anticipation of the inevitable, I ordered this snake, and sure enough, last week the tub clogged up again. I took out the stopper lever, fed the snake down, chucked it into my cordless drill, and within five minutes the water was swirling down the drain.
Great product, and easy to use............
