Questions & Answers

How do you attach the cable on this snake if it keeps falling out of the drum..?

Asked by: gAgA
I bought this two days ago from HD. It worked very well, but the cable came out of the drum entirely, tried to push back to the drum. It appears impossible to put it back. I returned, and get a new one as exchange, and hope it will last until my job is done. Why BrassCraft hasn't change the design, and just fix the end of the cable in the drum?

Drill Motor.

What kind of drill do i need?
Asked by: jjnl123
shaft is just under 1/4", so a 3/8" chuck or larger would work. use a variable speed drill that you can run at a slow speed, since high speed is not required or recommended when running the auger down the drain. I have a cordless drill with a high and low speed setting plus the trigger provides speed control within each high/low setting, so I used the low speed setting and barely pulled the trigger so the auger turned very slow and worked great. It appeared the slower I ran the auger for the most part, the better it worked.

I liked it. easy to use with or without the power drill. the thing is the snake is short i mean the wire. Im thinking of replacing the wire with a 50 ft or even a 100ft but keeping the same diamerter 1/4. In theory it should work right ? Now if this drum is made for a 25 ft snake does it mean it doesnt have any room for the 50ft ? Before i go and do this what safety issues do you guys fore see if instead of the 25 i use the 50 ft or the 100ft with this drum ? Thanks,
Asked by: DIY
I would say 50ft would not fit

1/4 in. x 25 ft. Power Pistol-Grip Drum Auger is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 333.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cable came out but easy fix, works great! I read all the reviews before purchase so I was aware of the issue regarding the end of the line not being attached. I pulled it out before use and marked the cable with permanent marker at 23 feet. I would suggest you use a piece of colored tape though because I didn't see the mark and ended up having the cable end come out of the drum. Easy fix though, just unscrew the drum and slide the cable back in...you have to put the bent end of the cable into the handle that turns the drum or it wont wind up. Then screw the drum back together and good as new. I used a good electric power drill which worked fantastic. Just watch the Home Depot video on how to use it.

This auger has no reliable way to keep the cable from completely coming out of the drum and no marking on it to indicate you are nearing the end of the cable. Fortunately, when I found this out it didn't drop into the drain--if that had happened, I guess I'd be calling the manufacturer to have them pay the expense of retrieving it from the drain. I've attached a photo of what this thing looks like after this happens. It's in a homer bucket ready for its trip back to Home Depot for a refund.

It worked great 3 times then while using it to clear a kitchen sink drain, the part that the snake goes through snapped off the canister that stores the snake thus rendering it useless. Very poorly built with cheap plastic. Great Idea but not thought through on design. This was home owner used not professionally used and the job should not of been demanding of this tool.

I almost never leave reviews online, but I'm happy to be able to use my bathroom sink again! I used it manually, without a drill, and it took about three tries to unclog our completely stopped sink. Ended up with a wad of hair the size of my hand! Would have given it five stars if the line didn't come completely out of the drum. There is a bulge in the line that seems like it's supposed to stop it, but they need to make it bigger. Not too bad to fix though, just feed it back in. Wish I would have read that before I took it apart. Now my sweetheart doesn't have to empty the sink with a cottage cheese container every morning!

Worked it down through Bath lavatory drain from top (removed lav stopper). Worked slow and careful, and tried NOT to let snake bind or kink. found obstruction - (cloth and thread pieces) at about 10 feet. Worked snake back and forth by hand as it went in. Drain now clear for first time in about 5 years (has been draining very slow). Seems to be a good product; recommend you check out videos before using and do NOT wind up until snake kinks - push and pull back and forth constantly!

After many attempts wit the name-brand products that are supposed to unclog your drain, I finally had to drive an hour away to try this before I conceded to hiring a plumber for the job. My kitchen sink was the issue. I watched the video and read the reviews, especially the negative ones to see if it was a mistake of their own or the actual product. I made sure I knew what I was doing before using this. It worked like a pro and was actually quite simple. Wish I tried this first! The most important thing is when you use this, make sure you understand how to before you try it. Watch the video, even youtube videos on similar ones, and take your time with it. If you do, you should be fine and have little issues with it. Worth the $25! I spent more than that on the liquid "plumber" products and they were worthless.

This product is awesome!!!!! reading some reviews kind of worried me a little but here's how ya do it!!!!! be really careful using it! Don't get all flustered wile using it and it won't break. feed slow and steady and only pull out around 8 inches at a time winding it in until you worked the clog out at first. it wont get bent all up. Im very pleased. take care of it cuz it beats a plumber bill for sure!!!!!!
