Plumbing Tools by Rothenberger Pipe & Drain Cleaning Coil
Too large for waste traps
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.

A great little device, cheap but very effective and easy to use. Had not problem in releasing fat/food blockage in the sink waste pipe. Just pushed it in and turned the handle. Job done in minutes!

A handy tool indeed
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 !

Useful addition to the tool ki
Did the job in clearing a fat blockage in a waste pipe that was out of reach, and wasn't cleared by caustic soda.
