Q:Would it work on my outdoor pipe
by|Mar 19, 2022
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Sara, KwikSpin is designed to work in lines up to 1 1/2" in diameter, and with soft blockages such as hair, lint, and grease. Typically outdoor drain lines are larger then 1 1/2", and can often have tougher blockages including roots. KwikSpin is primarily designed for indoor sinks, tubs, and showers. Thanks - RIDGIDSupport

    A:  The tool is not heavy duty, depending what clogged your pipe it is not able to unclogg

    by|Apr 28, 2022

    A:  It *may* work. Check to see if you have a clean out that’s accessible from inside or outside and then you also want to make sure this is long enough to reach most/ all of the sewer line. Watch some videos online first.

    Q:Can this product be used to clean out a clogged vent stack (waste water air vent on roof)? Thanks!

    Answer This Question

    A:  Possibly - you would have to figure out what to attach to the end in order to adapt it to the size of the vent pipe. Also, I believe that there is only 25' of cable in it so you could probably only do a single story house.

    by|Mar 13, 2022

      A:  Yes, but very difficult to use

              A:  Yes, it should rewind that way.

                A:  pull the trigger and and turn counter clockwise .. yes it takes time .. :)

                by|May 10, 2021

                  A:  I attached my portable drill to the base and put it in reverse. the handle should work in reverse to rewind the auger. Be sure to clean it before starting and as you rewind it.

                  by|May 7, 2021

                    A:  I feed it back in by hand and wipe it off with some rags as I go to keep it a little cleaner.

                        A:  It should look exactly like the picture, not sure how you could buy it missing parts. It's not like it is hidden in packaging.

                                A:  It may work but the diameter of the auger line may be too large to negotiate the tight bends of the toilet drain.

                                  A:  Turning drum clockwise advances the cable. Counter-clockwise re-tracts the cable. Cable can also be rapidly advanced/retracted by hand.

                                    A:  Not sure it will make it around the 90's in 3/4 pipe.

                                        A:  I don't believe that the tip could bend to go through a 3/4 inch 90 degree elbow.

                                        A:  Compressed air would be much better. I've seen what was done by my AC installers. At least you can fill the pipe with water from the upper side and then push it with compressed air. I would not use a snake, the drain is too weak for that, it's not a regular pipe, but a much weaker thinner pipe, that can be easily damaged. Also about this particular manual snake - I've made this mistake one time, would never buy it again. Instead, I got a very good battery powered snake and I'm happy with it, helped me save tons of money at least 3 times by now.

                                        A:  I am not sure what a condensation drain line is. I only use this to clear a clogged drain in my bathtub. You can contact customer service at 1-800-466-3337.
