Can you use on shower

Asked by Raymc1 May 19, 2020

No. The ball head is too large to fit in the tub drain basket and snake diameter is too large to make sharp turns in the 1-1/2” drain pipe fittings (would be rough on compression pipe fittings as they are less than schedule 40) you would be better off using a 1/4” diameter snake.

What is the best way to clean the auger after use?

I lay the soiled part in the shower & clean it that way.

Can this be used on a dual vanity sink clog?

No. The drop head is too big and the cable diameter is too unflexible. I’m assuming the drain is 1 1/2”. Even 2” would be tough. Use a snake with a 1/4” cable.

The head may twist off and break during use after you have had it a while, even on just a paper clog. You have to be gentle with it. If you feel resistance back off.

This thing is awesome!
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
I found this tool in a storage shed on the property of my home when I bought it. Little did I know at the time that there would soon be a use for it and probably the reason the previous home owner had it to begin with. Thanks for leaving this amazing tool behind for me to use. I recently had issues with what seemed like a clogged toilet that was also leaking beneath the toilet at the floor seal (wax ring). While using a plunger to no avail I remembered this cool looking auger tool in my shed. After just a brief bit of web research I realized what it was and immediately retrieved it. Almost as soon as I started using the K6 I hit an obstruction. After much work and a good bit of time I was finally able to penetrate the line beneath the toilet with the full length of the auger but then while trying to extract it I found that it was stuck on something. I immediately started applying much more force all the while continuing to turn the handle. After a good 15-20 minutes I felt something give and was finally able to extract it from the toilet. Much to my surprise out came a very large tangled clump of roots that was approximately 18" long and nearly the thickness of the inside diameter if the the sewer line at one end. I'm amazed that this toilet was even partially working at times with this huge mass of roots in the line. What I'm even more amazed at is how well the K6 did at extracting this thing without doing anything to my toilet. I would highly recommend this very well thought out and extremely well constructed tool to anyone regardless of the price. Very well worth the money and now that I know how easy it made the task at hand for me I would probably pay twice that much for it knowing all well that it can take whatever you put it through. My K6 auger now has a new home in the front of my workshop mounted on the wall like a trophy waiting for the next time I need rescuing from the nasty sewer line root monster. Thanks for an awesome tool! Regards, Don

Simple and fast
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
Forget the plunger. Tried hot water, soap, baking soda and vinegar. The auger is easier, faster, and more effective. Clog cleared in 30 seconds. Really.
