Rated 4 out of 5Â by tjplumber this product works well but the cable has problems
I have use your product and I really like it for small drain. The only thing I have to complain about is the cable seem to catch up after a few use of work. I have even broke cable in some older home drain and that end up with me losing money and preforming more work. also it would be nice if they came with drop heads for back to back drains. other wise this product works well. maybe you can help me so I can stop the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Enzo Drain auger that works great
This is an excellent product for home use. I had a very plugged up drain and tried everything (chemicals, water pressure, etc,) with no luck over 2 days. Used this auger and got the pipe unplugged in less than a minute without having to disassemble anything. While it works fine manually, I suggest using the powered mode (handcranks is included). Use a corded drill if you have one. The drum is heavy and applies a fair bit of torque to a cordless drill's transmission. I also suggest the auger for preventative maintenance. Run through all you pipes every once in a while. I did and they run far faster than before.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by gsa24 Terrible!!!!
I bought this product and the part where the drill can be attached broke off. Horribly manufactured, i wouldn't recommend this product. I recommend going with the manual handle ones, of course its more work but its also cheaper and more reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RigidLover Good Product for normal plumbing
This product is fantastic, however my older home has narrower traps and the auger line is not flexible enough to get through the trap on my tub. While it did get out most of the clog so water will run, I could not get the clog completley.
I still love the product though, and look forward to reaming out my pipes once I update my plumbing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DonMartin Great Basic Snake - Except for......
This is a great snake for the price. Hooking up a electric drill makes this thing work great. The auto feed is a great feature. However if you use this thing a number of times the plastic plug with a metal screw which holds the end of the wire auger is going to break. It is hard to tell how far into the drain you are and if you put it all the way into the drain you will most likely break the end lock. It's suprising that a product by Rigid has such a poor design. Anyway it broke for me In the middle of a job and I took it apart and took a small metal plate, bent it to the round shape of the snake and used 2 screws to hold it by drilling the holes through the plastic body to the outside. I put 2 nuts on the screws and it works better then ever. Come on Rigid ..... a great company like you needs to fix this. I saw the problem the first time I took it apart.....and I'm not an engineer!
