"what a great tool! this was used to unblock a sink waste that runs under my floor saving hours of messing about lifitng floor boards to find the blockage. It takes a bit of time but with some careful use i have pulled all sorts of rubbish from the pipe and the waste now flows freely. well recommended!"
"effective tool, neat design which does the job. I found that it is best to remove the trap to get direct access to the waste pipe as the worm would struggle to get past the plug hole and trap. I also found it was best to bend the tip bulb so the end thrashed around when turning to unblock the full diameter of the pipe."
"It didn't manage to shift the blockage but it did prove that the blockage was not in my flat but elsewhere in the building which meant it saved me getting a plumber out. Bend the end to a 45 degree angle if you require it to go around 90 degree bends or you will struggle"
"I initially found it impossible to get the cable to go round the second 90 degree bend in the pipe. My tip is to bend the last couple of inches of the cable, so it sticks out at a 45 degree angle. After 5 mins of patient trying, I got it all the way down and it cleared the blockage.
"Saved my skin with this purchase. Pipe was blocked from some point down into the soil pipe, so i took the pipes off to the wall. It was a little tricky getting round some of the corners, but a spot of washing up liquid on the end helped it. 15 mins it took. I don't normally bother to write reviews, but this is a great tool and now I'm not going to be forking out for a plumber"
"I purchased a similar product that was only 6m long but needed just a bit longer so bought this. I have to say it works really well and did the business. Be careful you don't use too much force or you will kink it though. Top marks and would recommend to anyone with a blocked sink (used on 40mm pipe)."
"Bought this recently, should have had one of these years ago.
Heavy, basic, solid no frills tool that works.
I sent this on a mission to unblock a bathroom basin with an 'S' trap. Down it went and about 5 minutes of scratching and firmly manipulating the wire, the blockage went. I used about 3 metres of the total 7.5m available.
TIP 1. The sharp hardened spring end needs pinching in slightly to stop it catching at the joints. Only 1 to 2 mm or you will damage the tool. No problem for an experienced DIY or tradesman.
TIP 2. When withdrawing the wire, send a good load of HOT water with some bleach added to ensure that the pipe is left clean and blockage well gone also your tool is sterilised ready for the next use. Obviously don't use bleach if you are on a septic tank or similar and WEAR YOUR SAFETY GLASSES! Bleach in the eye doesn't improve your eyesight. If the wire flicks suddenly you will find out why!!"
