Customer Questions & Answers

how do i actually use this auger ? i have very little plumbing experience, new home owner here

Asked by: john
If yiu will just follow the instructions that are on the unit, you should have no problem. Be sure to lock the retaining screw and feed the auger into the pibe while torning the crank handle and you should have no problem. After finding the clog and passing through is, I find it effective to "pull and push" the auger through the clog a few times to help clean it out before retrieving the auger.

can this product be used for kitchen sink clog?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes but you need to disassemble the curved drain pieces underneath till you get to the pipe that goes straight into the wall or down thru the floor.

Is there longer cable that can fit into this tool?

Hello, I purchased this tool due to the kitchen sink clog. I found it's easy to use. However, the cable seems not long enough to completely unclog the kitchen sink drainage. Is there any longer 1/4" cable that can fit into this tool? Thanks, A frustrated home owner
Asked by: homeowner123
No, only the length mentioned (25ft). If that is not enough you need to find another tool.

1/4 in. x 20 ft. Pistol-Grip Drum Auger is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 88.

This is the second one I had to buy and I am not happy. The tool is not durable for multiple uses, other then simple, small trap hair removal. (In most cases you could just take off the trap and clean it out then replace.) Far simpler then using this tool. The reason for two was that the tip of the first one broke off when retrieving a plastic toy out of a Kitchen sink drain, where it had past through the trap and wedged in to the tee connection with the vent. (Kids can find very unique ways to test your plumbing system.) Thus the second. The plastic construction makes it easy to clean, and not durably strong enough to make the metal cable "snake" navigate the twists and turns or older metal drain systems. Probably is not the right tool for drain systems installed prior to 1985. Obviously for residential use only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Drain snake The coiled wire works well for light clogs. I like that the wire stores easily inside the unit. However, I put too much pressure on the wire and it kinked in several places and I have not been able to straighten it. Next time, I will purchase a professional tool.

I was skeptical that this would remove a chain that had fallen in the shower drain, but was pleased when it worked the first time! I will keep this handy tool around for a long time, as it seems to be well built, and easy to use.

Spent an hour with my old snake, which is now in the trash and did not unclog the pipe. Went to HD purchased this tool and had it unclogged in 5 minutes. Best 20 bucks I ever spent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Met My Expectations Need a snake to clean the drain of the bathroom sink. This tool handled the job easily. Hopefully this won't be used often.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pistol grip Product is too weak. The rod got bent after a few times. I like the clip, though, as it is easy to lock it.
