" 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! "

Buy this first

" I made the mistake of buying a shorter coil first, trying to save a few £.
I should have just bought this first! It was great, easy to use and long enough for the job!
Note: It may not fit down the sinkhole, depending on what you have, but its easy enough to unscrew the sinkhole or to remove the ubend and do it from there! "

" Bought this to clear blockage in guttering hopper with VERY limited access (scaffold tower needed) downpipe had three bends in it and this went round then with little problem. Good feedback and I knew when I had hit the blockage. Some thrusting and turning and blockage cleared enough to allow water to flow out. Can see how easy it would be to use on a sink drain etc.
Well built and heavy and with no moving part should last a long time if you look after it. Instructions say to air dry and oil after use. I uncoiled it in garage and let it dry and coiled it all back up and sprayed with WD40.
One thing to note when you pull it out there is no 'stop' on the end so it's easy to pull it out the holder "

" I bought this to clear a washing machine waste pipe in my kitchen. The pipe runs under the floor and has at least 2 90 degree angles. At first I found this a bit fiddly to use, but after a few minutes I figured out the best way to use it and it did it's job perfectly. Just remember to tighten the screw on to the rod when you hit a sharp turn in the pipe. Then apply a little pressure and rotate until it finds it's way around. I also like the way the coil is stored neatly in the case. Well worth the money. "

Great tool did the job
15 May 2015

" Unblocked long 32mm pipe run, which included several 90 deg bends, in a few minutes. At first the tool may not seem to want to go round a bend, but rotating the handle at the same time as applying a little pressure works after a few turns. When doing this avoid having more than a couple of inches of the springy rod between the waste pipe opening and the the tools clamp. This allows a bit of pressure to be applied without the rod flexing all over the place. Great tool. "

" Had a blocked kitchen sink waste in a long pipe running under the floor - tried chemicals but they didn't work and then found this little gadget. Once you get used to locking off the wire and then gently turning the handle the cable does feed easily down the pipe - we had to run close on 5 metres before we found the blockage so the extra length on this tool proved perfect for the job breaking through quickly and easily. We found running some water down the pipe at the same time helped to remove the waste material more easily - drain now seems clear and no more smell - lovely! "

Little money, very well spent
14 Jan 2015
By Reviewyourcontent

" Just bought this and solved a slow draining shower (4 months, tried caustic soda, plunging etc with no joy), it took me 8 minutes. Looking at the corkscrew head you think there's no way it'll go down the 8 mm entre hole in the shower drain, but insert the tip and rotate the handle clockwise and it just coils through. Pulled up loads of hair and now draining instantly.
Then set about a troublesome external drain which has been a bother on and off for 3 years. Previously, plunging always cleared it but not this time, just choked solid. I pushed the rod in until it met resistance then turned the handle while pushing, on it went, same again then pulled back with LOADS OF GUNK coming out with it. I repeated this 3 times, 25 mins in total and it is free draining for the first one in a long time.
Cannot recommend this highly enough and for 20 quid!!!
Thanks Screwfix!

" Hello, I purchased this tool to navigate down a 5 metre length of 1/12 waste pipe with three 90 degree bends, I found the tool easy to assemble and operate. Its not expensive and can save time having to renew blocked pipework. I did find out whilst using it that when you come to a bend, tighten the locking screw and start rotating the drum in a clockwise direction while gently pushing the rod it soon worms around the corner.
Worth the money. "

" I ordered this on a Sunday morning and it arrived on Monday morning. I had tried a number of ways of unblocking the pipe and my next move was going to be calling in a plumber. This product was a last attempt at DIY.
In fact the product was easy to use. Rather than push the blockage further up the pipe it allows you to pull the waste material out. Excellent. Had the pipe clear within the hour. Wish I had found it before. Would recommend it to anyone.

" This tool paid for itself many times over within 15 minutes of buying it. I had a underground drain blockage over the Christmas weekend, goodness knows what a drainage company would have charged for a call out. A couple of minutes at almost the full extention resulted in the blocked pipe being cleared. Really pleased. "

Fantastic tool for the money

By MRangry99

" I bought this tool after reading the reviews.
Our bathroom sink has been semi blocked for the last three months, no amount of drain cleaner would clear it, i even tried a high pressure hose down the sink & also back flush from outside.
still no joy!
Tried this cleaner out of desperation & after about ten mins of pushing & pulling hey presto a large lump of gunk came out which was stuck about ten foot up the pipe.
What a brillant piece of kit.
i recommend you buy this tool for any drain problems.
