Answer: 
I have reused this tool many times. You may have to spend a few minutes removing some of the hairs from it though. I usually put some bleach and hot water to disinfect after every use. You can probably get 4-8 uses out of it before it's time to buy a new one.

Answer: 
I had this idea too when I first used this tool. But, to be honest, they are so effective and come out of your pipes so covered in horrid gunk (gunk previously clogging everything) that you won't even want to. They are so cheap. Just use a new one each time.

Answer: 
The best and easiest way is if you have access to the pipes under the sink.
you will need one or possibly two pairs of rather large channel lock pliers that can open up enough to turn the locking nuts on the P=Trap assembly then take it apart with a container underneath to catch the contents of that trap and release a your plastic tool as needed. then reassemble the P-Trap .... Of course while in there

Answer: 
Hi Mell - RednexToyz is correct. A little twisting or side-to-side jiggle usually does the trick. The same barbs that work to dislodge the hair and debris from the drain can also grab the linkage or branch within the drain. Please let us know if you have any additional questions regarding the product. Feel free to contact one of our Product Experts toll-free at 800-835-2200.

Answer: 
Twist it from side to side & gently push in & out a little. I find that the teeth get hooked on the underside of the sink drain & can be a little tough to get out at times.

Thank you Barb for your question. You do not have to remove your stopper linkage to use this tool. This tool will slide around it. You may have to jiggle the handle of the tool side-to-side if the barbs get caught on the way out. Several insertions may be necessary to fully clear your drain. If you have additional questions about the tool or its use, please do not hesitate to contact our customer support Read More

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 169 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WORKS LIKE A CHARM! AMAZING!!! I learned about the Zip It from a friend. I bought the zip it for under $3.00 and brought it home hoping for the best. I watched the You Tube video first and thought, easy enough, I can do this ... let's give it whirl before I call the plumber and pay $129 for the service call alone. Well, exactly as shown on the video, I put it in, pulled up some gunk and ran the water, it definitely improved but I thought it still wasn't as fast to drain as it used to be. So, I went around the drain opening like a clock and inserted the Zip it in the drain at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock positions, pulled out a whole lot more stuff and the drain is as fast smooth as when it was brand new. YAY!!! Money very well spent and thanks for saving me loads of money on a plumber! June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT PRODUCT So simple, easy, inexpensive, and most importantly it really does work. July 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best 2.50 spent for blocked drain Great product. Avoided the Plummer Thank You to the inventor of this product. Cleared the drain immediately July 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheaper than a bottle of Draino! Pulled hair and some other miscellaneous stuff from my bath drain. A bottle of Draino did not do the trick but this tool worked perfectly. The shower no longer fills with water due to a backed up drain. I also tried this on one of the drains for my kitchen sink. The barbs pulled off in the kitchen sink but I was still able to successfully get a much better flow through that drain as well. Although my ZipIt is now broken, I unclogged two drains for less than a Starbucks coffee. I'll repurchase and attempt to use a ZipIt before ever trying to use Draino again. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy this - don't blow your money on drain cleaning liquids! After spending a lot of money on drain cleaning liquids, I stumbled across this. The 10 mins I spent cleaning 2 wash basins and a tub has produced better results than any drain cleaning liquid ever did. This is the way to go. Highly recommended. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really Worked! I think this is a great product. I saved quite a bit of money using it and it was easy to use. May 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great and Simple tool! - I call it THE GRUDGE remover Remember the movie the Grudge? that is how the hairs coming out of the bathtub look like. This tool is great. Such a simple design yet so efficient. Do not waste your time buying chemical products to unclog your bathtub if hair is your issue. Save some money and the environment. Use this tool. The tool can be reusable. I usually put it through hot water and bleach after using it. I can usually get somewhere between 5-7 uses out of it. May 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love!! Pulled enough hair out of tub to knit a scarf! Super fast and very effective! April 30, 2016
