"Having seen such an unusual number of five star reviews, I had high expectations, but was somewhat disappointed to find that although it cleared a recurring blockage in a shower, the blockage came back the next day. I then used the power plunger again, but this time used a lot of water to flush the blockage away after it was loosened.
In this particular case, it appeared that the blockage was able to reform in the long near-horizontal pipe run, so when using the plunger, make sure that you keep a good flow of water following afterwards to properly dissipate the blockage.
The power plunger seems pretty good at clearing some rather challenging blockages."
"Having read the reviews of others I thought this was worth a go. It saves having to open up floors or ceilings and eliminates the mess associated with rods or wires. It did the job in a few minutes which had defied all other methods. Cannot comment on reliability as I have only just used it. Hoever if it only does two jobs it will have paid for itself in time saving alone so its a really good investment."
"I am normally very cynical about the claims made for specialist products. My experience is they generally don't work. Power Plunger is well made and to my great surprise it performed very well. It cleared a long inaccessible 40mm ABS kitchen drain that included several bends. The drain had resisted chemical cleaners, flexible wire drain clearer and a normal wooden handle rubber plunger. The blockage had been caused by a build up in the pipe of a nasty smelling black gel substance. The total length of the "sausage" removed was about 300mm. I connected the Power Plunger to the pipe after the sink's U-bend to avoid the overflow and washing machine connections.."
"I bought this after reading many favourable reviews on here, having struggled for years with our slow running drains. No combination of chemicals or flexi drain spring have been able to clear whatever is clogging the short final 1m length of my internal waste pipes before they join the main sewer stack.
I got home with it on Friday to find my washing machine was back-filling into the kitchen sink because the blockage was so bad, so I had a ready supply of standing water which it needs. Pumped the PPP up to about half pressure each time and gave it five blasts - bingo, pipes cleared and running faster than they ever have.
Don't muck about with anything else, get the PPP and let those pipes have it!"
"Needed to unblock ladies loo before opening time. Got the Pro Power Plunger, last one in stock. Gave it 4 or 5 shots and it was job done. Couldn't be easier and great value. I recommend you get one, never know when you will need it. Can't comment on reliability as I've only used it once, feels solid enough."
"Had slow running bathroom sink for years. This finally blocked completely for five days. I tried soda crystals, Chemical unblockers, plumbers snake, the lot, even plumbers visits. Saw this and decided to give it a go.
Wow!, I blocked the overflow in the sink with a wet cloth. Primed the pump. It took 5 shots in total and less than 4 mins. The sink now runs better than it has ever done. Worth every penny!! Super fast delivery too, day after order placed. Even got a text to say it was on its way"
"This little bit of kit saved me digging up my extension floor. We had badly blocked drains as are pipes are knackered. I firstly had to rod the main run. This then left my gully trap and elbow joint blocked with all sorts of food waste. The nearest manhole was 4 houses down. I cut my 1 1/2 inch down pipe just before it disappeared into the ground and started plunging. It took a good few hours of sending shock waves through the pipes but I now have perfect flowing drains again.
"For years, I've been struggling with a badly designed, slow-running waste-pipe that connects everything in the bathroom apart from the loo and runs for some 20 feet in total. I've tried everything to keep it clear: a Monument plunger, power plumber gas cans (expensive); a "Silverline wastepipe Blast unblocker" (useless), and a regular dose of One-Shot acid.
Faced with a new crisis of the basin water coming up in the bath and the bathwater going nowhere, I bought this because of all the positive reviews. It sorted it out in a few minutes and the water has never flowed as quickly. It's better than the gas cans and of course re-usable. It's also about as much DIY fun as it is possible to have."
"Forget all the chemical products that are out there. This is the bomb, does exactly as intended and lives up to its name. It will shift the most blocked up drains effortlessly. A little bit pricey but appears to be really well made and robust, although only plastic. I have probably spent about £50.00 over the years on chemicals and other plungers but this really does work. Get one you will not be disappointed."
"I have had a blocked sink drain for a few days. Like everyone else I went through the Mr Muscle Drain Gel, Soda Crystals and any other cleaner I could find. None worked and probably made the blockage more impacted. Just 2 pumps from this product cleared the sink (did a third which was not required!). I think the problem is that the drainage pipe has burrs at the joints and so gunge builds up on this. I look forward to replacing the pipework when I refurbish the en-suite in future. As mentioned in the instructions a wet cloth to seal off the overflow is all that is required."
"My sink has been blocked for a number of weeks and to be honest has never flowed as well as the other sinks in my house since it was built. I had tried cleaning out the trap and snakes and chemicals to no avail. Got home with this and had an attempt. It initially didn't clear it but did push the water which was in the sink down so will have helped in pushing the water rich in chemicals towards the point of blockage. After doing some other jobs came back to the sink 2hrs later to have another try and after a bit of gurgling... whoosh the sink was clear and running more free than it ever has. BTW the best thing I found to block the overflow was stuffing it with a rubber glove and do be careful and do wear eye protection."
"After 4 weeks of trouble with my bathroom sink and the purchase of small snake, large snake & numerous liquid drain cleaners...........Why did I not just purchase this compressed air unblocker in the first instance.......Read reviews, purchased, Unboxed, set up, 4 blasts and 20min later (purchase to use) drain flowing as new, if not possibly better! ............. EASY & BY FAR UNBEATABLE FOR TASK AT HAND CHEERS!!"
"I’ve bought and been through over the last 5 days propriety drain cleaner, a smaller snake, the largest snake I could find. Then I put down a full bottle of 90% Sulphuric acid. Nothing made a difference. I took the trap off, gave it nine pumps and let loose directly on the waste. One fire and for the first time since I’ve lived here the sink just drains straight away. It’s like the waste pipe has just been installed."
"First review I've ever bothered to write on this website. My wife has long hair and blocked shower traps is a constant problem. This product cleared a totally blocked trap in about 1 minute. Just pump it up and press the trigger, simple as that really.
"I dont usually write reviews but I was so happy with this product, I want others to benefit. I spent a week trying to clear a kitchen sink blockage. Tried all chemicals and still no luck. Five pumps with this tool and the blockage cleared. Took five minutes max. Great tool."
