Answer: 
It's about three feet, which is NOT enough for ANY toilet, regardless of what some reviewers have said. It's long enough for my master toilet, but I have to find a longer one now for our downstairs toilet because this one does not reach far enough to get the whole clog.

Answer: 
The working portion of the hand held auger with a crank sold at HD is about 36-40 inches... That is plenty for a toilet. It only needs to get past the trap and down below the wax seal... Beyond getting at a stubborn clog in a toilet trap, its not good for much else.

The crank and plastic cover that covers the metal auger when you slide it just out of sight at the bottom of your toilet bowl is 3 feet long. Once you have that into the bottom of your toilet, the metal screwing auger decends slowly about another 3 feet through all the bends and stuff inside the bottom of your toilet, all the way to the 4 inch drain pipe that your toilet sits on. That auger unclogged my toilet the first try, in less than 2 minutes. And now my toilet flushes like it was brand new. If it was more than poo.. or whatever, it must have pushed it through to the 4 inch drain pipe. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AUGER.BUT, go to you-tube first and type in "How do I use a toilet auger".
Just DON'T FORCE IT, just push slightly and crank the auger and it will snake all the way in. GOOD LUCK!!

I would recommend the 3/8"x3' toilet auger. I fought a stopped toilet for 3-4 days. I purchased the auger about 1/2 hour ago and followed the directions as well as viewing the video on Youtube. In less than 2 minutes I had a working toilet for under $10.00. Don't know how I could beat that!

Harsh chemicals my damage the porcelain finish on your toilet, and potentially any warranty you may have left... May take some time, but probably will work. I'd consider removing the toilet and manually removing the clog...

Answer: 
I would use a "snake" to remove the clog. I believe it is beyond the capabilities of a plunger or a chemical. After clearing the clog H/D carries a chemical tune up for toilets that will clean up any long term build up.

Hello rsgg1114,
Most sewer snakes and toilet augers can easily damage the toilet, so I'm with you in terms of using a liquid drain opener (chemical as you call it) to use.
Basically, using gel formula drain openers, in brands like Liquid-Plumr and Drano should be able to unclog your toilet.
These are stronger than their liquid counterparts, and do a good job of dislodging any clogs.

Thank you Unplugged411 for the question. A standard lubricating oil will work for this product. Look for products that say "Multi-Purpose Precision Lubricant Liquid Oil". The Home Depot carries several varieties. Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our customer support team toll-free at 800-835-2200.

Answer: 
Dear Sarah - The boring head on the toilet auger should be able to grab the sponge. However, whether you will be able to fully retrieve the sponge depends on its size and flexibility to be snaked back through the drain pipe in the toilet. If you have any additional questions please let us know toll-free at 800-835-2200.

Answer: 
I haven't tried mine on your specific clog but I can say that the auger is designed to hook onto obstructions and pull them back. Mine does a great job on anything that gets lodged in the gooseneck. Also, it's a lot less expensive than hiring a plumber or replacing a toilet. Hope it works well for you!
Best wishes,
Mike

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 252 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by For occasional small business and home use, this is just fine This works just as well as the name brand units costing several times more. It's a bit cruder in "fit and finish", but in practice it works just the same, IMO. I have used it several times at home to clear toilet clogs. The curved guide pipe is to keep the bulb and cable from scratching the visible part of the porcelain bowl and from scratching the first part of the trap inside the bowl. I have had this work very well for me even when I say to myself "this will never work, but I'll give it a shot anyway." Please read and follow the (very simple) instructions. It's worth taking the time for this - avoids damaging the bowl! August 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by didn't remove a clogged diaper. spent hours rotating this thing inside toilet bowl, but a clogged diaper was not removed. i finally managed to remove diaper by getting similar device but little pricy. August 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Good buy There was nothing to assemble so the instructions made it very easy to use. Once it was in place all I had to do was turn the handle and wow! I saw the water going down. Then with a couple of plunges, the clog was gone! This auger saved me a couple of hundred dollars! Whew! Everyone should have one of these things. It really works! August 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy I bought this because of the price. Absolutely useless. The coiled part is super cheap. I began slowly twisting the handle and the entire coil wrapped around itself. Tried several times watched numerous videos and this last time the coil snapped. Had to stick my hand as far down the toilet as possible to pull the snapped piece out. Do not recommend August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clearing the way. This was all that I needed to remove a nuisance obstruction. It was not physically clogged but something was restricting the outlet of the bowl. This took care of it with no problem at all. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solved the problem inexpensively Solved the problem of a blocked toilet drain quickly and inexpensively. July 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by woefully inadequate Product was exactly as advertised, but was unable to even start clearing clog, called plumber, he had the same tool, only in a commercially sized version. He said Home Depot carries for about $60.00, but his auger really worked well. I just spent money I didn't need to for a tool. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It does the trick So this is the tool you need if your toilet is really clogged. I just couldn't get any plunger to fit my new toilets well enough to not splash back out when compressed, what a mess. Besides, I eventually ran into a situation where a kid put something down the toilet that was never going to make it and this tool was able to spear it and pull it back out. Who knew someone would throw a Tassimo coffee disc down the toilet! So this snake did the trick and would frankly handle any problem thrown at it, and without scratching the bowl. After use I rinsed it off and sprayed with WD40 per the instructions, it awaits in the garage for the next emergency. May 10, 2016
