Saved a Dynorod call out
2 Jan 2016
By
, Suffolk
" Spent all morning trying to unblock a toilet, caustic soda, drain rods etc. Last option was this tool and it was brilliant.
There were a series of baby wipes in the toilet U bend and the spinning action wrapped them around the brush so that they could be pulled out.
Would never have unblocked it without this tool and for the money it saved a fortune

" We had a badly blocked toilet. I was unable to clear the blockage using standard rods as it was in the toilet U-bend and flexible elbow. Plungers had no effect and despite trying various bits of hose etc I could not get round the U-Bend. The tool negotiated the U-bend and cleared the blockage relatively easily. For the price I can't fault it. "

" This product saved the day on a very stubborn waste disposal related blockage. The blockage itself was well beyond the trap and in a massively inaccessible area. Product won't last forever so probably not one for a plumber, though at that price you could buy one for every job! "

Clears blockage quickly
29 Aug 2014
By
, Cumbria
" Used to clear the blockage from the shower drain from above, instead of removing the bath panel and upcoupling the pipework...allowing tap water to flush away the debris from the brush.
An excellent tool for that job, my only reservations being the lifespan of the brush, and it's too big for some of our washbasins and sinks.

" Clean around the bend it went. Cleared the blockage a treat. Remember to turn clockwise only. Trail & error showed me this. Brush comes off if you turn anti clockwise. Not a problem at all if you remember. "

" I purchased this item to clear a waste pipe connected to a shower tray. I had access to the pipe from both the shower tray and outside the house, so was able to tackle the blockage from both ends. It performed extremely well and did precisely what I required of the tool. "

Good product but unsuitable
23 Jan 2013
By
, Portsmouth
" Product was of good construction, albeit not removed from the packaging. Reason for this was due to the fact that the usuable length is not shown on the packaging and I had to check on line for this detail. Having thus found it was too short the product was returned to screwfix local store. "

For WC's too?
14 Jan 2013
By
, Winchester
" In desperation, I bought this for a blocked WC pan. It was evidently blocked just out of view but the pan was dangerously full of water. The biggest problem was encouraging the end to turn up the U bend. Once turned, the handle is useful but needs a bit of strength to get the rotation where it is needed.
Anyway, it did its job and the blockage went, Took about ¼ hour of fiddling around. "

A handy tool indeed
11 May 2015
By
, Essex
" Had a hand basin that was draining very slowly. Cleaned out U bend but that didn't improve drainage as much as hoped. 40mm waste pipe runs behind a large, fitted sink unit and had a feeling that this pipe was partially blocked.
Fed this tool into the waste pipe, gave a few sprays of bathroom cleaner and cranked the handle. Removed tool, cleaned brush and removed hair and sludge and repeated several times
Drainage is now restored, tool cleaned and dried and ready for the next plumbing emergency - fantastic !

Don't buy it

By
, Medway
" whilst cleaning an en-suite sink pipe the brush came off and wedged in the pipe. Now have to rip out a shower enclosue & take out a stud wall so that I can cut the blocked pipe out. This is going to cost thousands and take days to rectify as I have to replace the stud wall and re-tile. Don't buy it! "

Hopeless
11 Jan 2016
By
, Newcastle upon tyne
" Needed something to clear a blockage in kitchen sink drainage pipe. Blockage was approx 30cm beyond U bend. Good reviews suggested this was the tool.
Firstly my fault on an assumption that this tool was an outer flexible sheaf with a rotatable inner core attached to the handle which in turn would spin the brush on the end to help clear blockage. It isn't.
If you know pedal cycles, this tool is essentially a brake or gear cable sheaf. Identical in design but slightly thicker. It's flexibility comes from being a tightly wound hollow spiral of metal covered in a plastic material. At the end is a small soft brush. The handle to rotate is fastened at the opposite end. All of the tool rotates when the handle is turned.
Seems it should work but as I inserted the cable to the blockage it left approx one metre protruding. Pushing didn't work, but on trying to turn the handle all that occurs is the protruding section tangles like a rubber band as the section inside the pipes stayed static. After 5 minutes the tool kinked and the spiral metal inner deformed totally broken.
I resorted to an actual bike brake cable sheaf. It was more flexible, removed the blockage, and the item was returned for a refund.
The blockage was some small pieces of carrot peelings, nothing which a tool of this type shouldn't have easily coped with!

Too large for waste traps
27 Jun 2015
By
, West Wales
" I bought this on the basis of the rave reviews.
However, it is much too large / inflexible to go through any of the traps I tried (sink, bath and shower).
If the blockage were in the trap alone then it would work with the brush, but a simple bottle brush would be easier.
The reliability rating is given as a rating has to be entered - though have no idea as it hasn't been used. "
