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!

good once you get used to it.
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
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.

First port of call.
This is the tool I always try first, before going on to more serious equipment. It's very straightforward, and in most cases is the only tool I need. Well worth the money.
