Customer Questions & Answers

how do i get the snake to unwind from the spool so I can use it?

Asked by: Judi
Great question, had the same challenge! After removing all of the product sticker(s), I had to attach the end to an anchor (in this case a hook in my garage wall), and then pull. I left it anchored and pulled out the full 20'. Then i coated the tape with a lubricant and wound it up using the handle as close to the center as possible. Am hoping the lubricant will coat the insides to make the pull much easier in the future.

Unwind and push through to the clog turning the whole thing in you hands to spin the auger. Though you will likely have to disassmble you drain and it could not get through our sinks s tube to get to the clog.

This auger gets caught on the plumbing fixtures!

Hi there--I have a kitchen drain that is weirdly plumbed and sometimes gets clogged, even though I'm careful to use a trap for food debris; The U-trap is about 4 ft from the drain itself, with a long stretch of pipe leading to it. I've used this tool twice, trying to avoid calling my Super, and it gets stuck on something in there--this last time a plumber had to remove it for me, so I'm obviously not going to stick I in there again.. :( Is there something I could do to the augur on the end to make it smooth? Cover it with epoxy or something? It's getting hooked on the rivet which holds the screw on, I think. Ever heard of this problem? Any suggestions? The first time, I got it out by pouring a bunch of vegetable oil down the drain...!
Asked by: DrB
Dear DrB – thank you for your question. We do not recommend modifying the sink cleaner for your application. A drain cleaner with a round wire such as the BC91015 (Store SKU # 167436) or the BC84150 (Store SKU # 157345) with 1/4 in. diameter and 15 ft. length may be more suitable for your requirements. Please remove your sink p-trap prior to using either suggested drain cleaning tool. If you have additional questions on product selection or use, please feel free to contact one of our product experts toll-free at 800-835-2200.

1/4 in. x 20 in. Encased Sink Cleaner is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 74.

It’s poorly designed tip got stuck in the pipe on a turn and it thought I was going to have to cut the pipe to get it out. It took me about 30 minutes to get out of the drain and promptly tried to coil it up which was nearly impossible without breaking the flimsy case/handle. I used the ultra-strength draino and the clog cleared overnight.

Considering its price, it's not dreadful but it didn't clear the particular blockage I had (i used a compressed air can thing, also available at Home Depot for about $10 and it worked like magic). If it was a hair clog it probably would have helped and although the cable is a bit flexible (ie not really strong enough) I decided to keep it as it was so cheap and may be of use down the road.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great snake for sinks Great product. This product helped me finally remove a clog in a sink drain. I tried a larger snake but it was too large to go thru pipes used this worked instantly. Great price too not over expensive. The flat tape design makes it easy to slide thru pipes. I would recommend this product

That makes the first bend in the pipes easy however if the second bend comes at an angle ie. 90 degrees to the first the product would need to bend against it's width ,that is not going to happen...

When I used it as the instructions said to the metal tape broke the plastic housing and injured my hand. I would not recommend it nor ever buy it again myself. I had to wrap gorilla tape around it to continue using it.

Cheaply made, plastic handle will break with more than moderate force! The screw end will have to screwed in to drain and good luck unscrewing it out. Product is a junk don't waste your money on it.
