"Does the job perfectly, used it to unblock a slow emptying bath. Tried drain un-blocker before this but it actually got worse.
I was thinking I was going to have to take my bathroom apart because the waste pipework is not easily accesible, saw this item on the website and thought I'd give it a go!
It does come with easy to follow instructions, all you do is block the overflow (I used the plug and tape but any way you can block it would be fine) This stops the pressure simply going out of the overflow, fill the bath/sink so you have a decent amount of water in it, place the plunger end in the water and draw the water into the plunger with the handle then move it over the plug hole, push the body down tightly over the plug hole and push the handle down fast. It cleared the blockage for me with the first attepmpt and took all of 2 minutes.
Cant comment on the reliability really but feels very good in operation and is built quite solidly"
"Having struggled all week to unblock the waste pipe to my bathroom sink, I found this awesome bit of kit and what a discovery!! It was so simple to use and it cleared the blockage first time of asking within seconds. Can't recomend it highly enough and best £2.50 Ive spent in a long time!"
"I cant begin to tell you how good this product is, after years of using chemical unblockers it still was not up to standard until now, it took me 4 minutes to unblock a sink that was not going down and it is the best it has been since refitting the bathroom."
We have had a slow draining shower in the en-suite for months now
Even had "plumbing cover" to come out and try and fix it , they wouldn't touch it - said the pipe work was too small
We have tried bottle after bottle of "sink cleaner" , "drain un-blocker" etc.. and nothing worked
We even tried a home made potion of bi-carb soda and vinegar and still nothing
Read the reviews of this and thought at that price why not .. its the same price as the above stuff .. so its worth a shot
Ran the shower and the tray started to fill up , used the plunger maybe 3 times and it cleared what ever blockage we had
Shower is draining just like the day it was installed :) Happy days
We had to suck water into the tube , then move it over the plug hole and then force the water thru .. there is no point putting it over the plug as you will suck water out of the trap and then simply put it back in ... we wanted the pressure of the water in the tube to force the water thru , not to fill the empty space
Its the first time I have written a review for Screwfix , but after using this , I just had to !!"
"I just bought this today and feel compelled to write a review immediately. I was slightly wary given the low price but the great reviews made me think it was worth the risk (it's only £2.59 after all). Last year our kitchen sink blocked up and after spending out on expensive unblockers as well as a few bottles of caustic soda, we eventually had to get Dyno in to unblock the drain. He used something that looked like a higher spec version of this, but essentially the same thing. It cost us about £80 for him to come out, but it sorted the problem so I was happy. When it happened again last week, I again tried caustic soda (just in case) but to no avail, so I thought I'd look around for the kind of thing he used before I spend out again on a professional. I got this home this afternoon and gave it two or three pumps and it worked perfectly, sink runs smoothly again! One tip that others have mentioned: make sure you block the overflow hole. I taped it up but the high pressure made the tape come off, so I just stuffed a kitchen sponge into it and that worked. If you don't, all the gunk in the gaps may come spewing out."
"Absolutely did the job... my blocked bathroom sink was unblocked within minutes... so straightforward to use and very sturdy, as previous plungers I have owned never survived after one use but I think this one will last for a good wee while yet!!!!"
"This sink & bath unblocker is a superb product and the price is excellent too! It just does everything it promised and is very efficient. I bought this product last year and I strongly recommend this to others."
"- the bathroom basin is totally unblocked and the OH can stop moaning. I've had a half dozen goes at it with a standard plunger over the last few weeks and each occasion only improved the flow marginally. The problem area appearing to be further down the line where the sink waste merges with the shower. One go with the newly acquired Sink and Bath Unblocker and we now have free flow down the basin and no flow from the OH. Pure magic on both counts. Highly recommended."
"Excellent value - sturdy performance. Does the job well at a fraction of the price of a professional company. Highly recommended and consider a necessity around the home. Practical tool for kitchen, bathroom and shower room. Operates in tight corners and space."
"Excellent product,tried everything to unblock the sink including soda crystals. Looked on the net for a power plunger cheapest £8.00 Then went on screwfix same product £2.59p paid on line collected 10 minutes later, 15 minutes later sink unblocked ..... Thanks Screwfix...."
"It was with apprehension that I bought this item to unblock a troublesome bath waste in my own property but upon using it I was over the moon that it did its job admirably. The item was sturdy enough for the job and will in my opinion be so for ages to come. As a kitchen / bathroom fitter who also also does plumbing I have found this piece of kit a valuable addition in my toolbox and I will recommend to my customers that if they have a problem with their wastes to get one of their own"
"When none of the cleaners could unblock my Bathroom drain; i thought of giving a try with this one as it was only £2.59. I must say that this product is a MUST for every household...Cheap and does what it is supposed to do!.. Thanks Screwfix"
"Our bath tub had been draining slowly for about a week, then it stopped draining completely. Luckily we have an external shower room that we can use.
Having tried various so called 'magic' unblockers for 3 days, none of them worked.
Read the encouraging reviews here and got myself one from my local warehouse. Friendly staff.
I ensured that there was water in the bath tub. Did three pumps and saw some gunge surface to the bath plug hole. The sink next to the tub, blocked up, so I gave a couple of pumps here and then ALL of the water in the tub quickly drained out. I went outside where the pipework protrudes from and saw that ALL of the gunge had come out, quite a bit of it.
This works very well. Highly recommended!
Tip, wear gloves and some safety goggles in case harsh unblocker chemicals you may have used prior to using the plunger splash onto your skin."
"At a large student accomodation building we have around 10 of these for unblocking shower traps, all the cleaners have them, absolute life savers, suck up the water with it then force it through the drain works every single time, and at 2.50 a pop you cant complain. Air will never clear drains but high pressure/speed water is guaranteed to eventually."
