Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Anonymous
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: Anonymous
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 have an Ac main drain line that seems to to have a clog. I;ve tried vinger but that did not work very well.

Would this tool be recommended to open the clog? If not what would be recommended?
Asked by: Tom
Depends on the size of the drain pipe. Recommend not using a drill .

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.

The following week I used it again. I only needed 10 feet and it did the job easily. I hope they have a replacement snake that can be assembled into this fixture when it breaks .

This was a cheaper brand and worked like a champ. I was so impressed how well it worked with my Milwaukee Drill. Worked on a bathroom sink doing a dirty job effortlessly.

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.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clog Free Very satisfied with this snake/auger. Only used once so far but I can see that this was a good investment. Was worried that it only being 1/4 inch that it may not work as efficient but it actually worked great and went down my pipes very easily due to its size. Had my drain cleaned out in 5min. Had to use almost the entire 25ft due to the distance of my clog. Did not use the drill attachment option. I hand cranked it and it did fine. Saved me a weekend service fee of a plumber that would definitely have been over $150. Very easy to use and would definitely recommend.
