Customer Questions & Answers

How did I get this item repaired?

I have had this about 4 years and don't have the receipt.
Asked by: Anonymous
Home Depot was kind enough to exchange 2 for me but #3 is sitting in shop with a kinked cable. I was unable to secure the MFG Warranty but I did try. Each of mine only worked a few times successfully then went south. I believe the manufacturers web site has a way to send in for repair estimates but you may find the cost leaves you needing another unit unless it is something small like a switch.

Asked by: STAR
Very, very doubtful. It does not have a cutting head typically found on larger, 4-inch sewer pipe machines. There may be accessories available per an additional purchase that would make cleaning roots possible, but only on smaller diameter pipe.

can i get it in 50ft cable length

Asked by: Anonymous
The fixed length is based upon the 5/16th. cable size and housing dimensions. And you would not want a longer length with this device as the cable kink and crimps when extended making it useless. The best thing you can do is rent a device from Home Depot (I do) for sporadic use or get yourself a slightly larger device with 1/2"-5/8" cable. Despite the fact that equipment cost more, it will be cheaper in the long run as you get much better performance and it will last longer.

Auto-Clean K-30 Sink, Tub and Shower Drain Cleaner is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 188.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved my time & money I called my plumber to fix but he is not available before two days. I go and grab this tool which makes my life easy. It is excellent tool. The drawback is you have to hold and press the whole time. You need thick glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is the bomb! I tried everything to open the bathtub drain, including calling plumbers... This thing is the bomb! I tried everything to open the bathtub drain, including calling plumbers who only partially opened it. This machine completely removed the blockage. I am a widowed woman, I had the drain completely open in 15 minutes. Money well spent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good.... Earlier reviews are correct. you have to squeeze handle hard enough to break your hand, in order for the snake to move forward and backward. Better off renting a better tool..

I've been in the plumbing trade for 17 yrs now and always relied on my handheld Rigid drain cleaner. After seeing some of the positive reviews on this machine I decided to give it a try. I purchased one yesterday and had a customer with a clogged tub so this was the perfect test and must say it worked GREAT! 10 mins later I was done with the clogged drain. Only con I would say is that the feed is a bit slow but its fine by me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! Once you read the directions, this product is easy to use and really effective. Have used it twice - once on a shower drain and once on a sink drain. No problems on either one but as I said before I would suggest carefully reading the instructions to avoid damaging the machine. It is so much easier to use than the cheap wind up or drill driven sink augers, worth spending the extra money for this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. We believe that this may be the drain clearing machine we've been looking for. The first time I used it it cut a hour job down to fifteen mintues . It was easy to handle and use and my arm didn't feel like it was going to fall off from holding the manual crank snake in that ackward position you have to operate it. Great little machine so far so good only time will tell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small drain cleaner This machine worked well. The auto feed was a little slow but it worked. The machine is light weight and easy to maneuver. I bought this to clear small drain lines and it excelled at that. Longevity wise I'm not sure, the machine is primarily plastic but appears well made. Past equipment I've used has been a lot heavier construction. Time will tell if it holds up.
