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!

Little money, very well spent
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!!!

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.
