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

Customer Reviews

1/4 in. x 25 ft. Power Pistol-Grip Drum Auger is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 355.
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be better. I bought this because I could hook my drill up to it. I really needed something I could push past some of the elbows I couldn't get my manual snake thought. When it worked, it was great and worked just like the video. However there are a few design flaws. First the drive shaft you hook your drill up to is round and smooth. The drill would slip on the drive shaft as you applied power. I had to keep tightening the drill chuck. Second design flaw is when you get to the end of the coil the cable flares just a little bit to let you know. If you're not careful you'll pull the cable right out of the housing. Put a stopper or rubber tubing at the end to let the user know. It did clear the drain but I'm going to return it and get something better.

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.

If you work slowly and do not try to hard push it through the pipes it will clean them out. We went the entire 25 feet to make sure the pipes were cleared. Water flows smoothly through our bathroom sink now. It was easy to use, and did not tangle or get stuck. Worked like a charm, took about 45 minutes going slowly to make sure drain clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile Purchase I bought this one because I could use a drill motor on it. But it worked so easily by hand that I just used it without the drill. It snaked around several fittings till I had about 12 feet out, and cleared the drain. The whole job took about 5 minutes. I found the little lever that gripped the cable made the job go easier than one with a screw gripper. Also, this type is so much easier than the kind with the little offset handle mounted on a bare cable. I threw that one in the garbage. The instructions are not great, and it's hard to get the label off them. But you can easily find a Youtube video that shows how to do it with a similar product.

With a 1/4-inch cable, you get kinking once the tip encounters any kind of obstruction. This becomes more true the farther in you have the cable extended. If you don't know how far in your clog is, just buy a shorter 10 or 15-foot "hand crank" auger. If your clog is farther in than that, with this product your cable will just kink up.

My sink now drains perfectly. It was easy to use once you get the hang of it. Do not force it through, take your time using a back and forth motion. It will unclog your drain.. I would highly recommend it.
