Did its job well. Amazing price. It would have cost much more to hire a plumber to do it for me, and now I can use it for future problems. I just watched a couple YouTube videos to figure what to do. Piece of cake!

The plunger is OK but when you've been working up a sweat with the plunger and the clog still isn't getting pushed through, you'll wish you had one of these! This snake is easy to use and works like a charm. I never used one before and I was able to use it without looking at the instructions with absolute success in minutes. This is one of my favorite household items now!

Must have for every home owner

Great product to do dirty jobs in a cleaner way!

Love this tool

…It quickly removed a clog in the bathroom sink and removed a large nasty clump of hair from the shower drain....I would highly recommend to all home owners!

Life saver!

…(It's not severely sharp, but be aware if you are like me and was eager to start putting them to use right away - my bathroom hand sink was clogged and this is one of my first DIY home projects =P) They worked great tough, the length was perfect for me and the material is strong enough so you are not afraid that this tool would snap and break mid way in the drains.…

Works as Expected!

Excellent at pulling the previous home owners gunk out of the shower drain!…

Thicker and wider than others.

I haven’t used it yet but they are much thicker than the ones I have bought at Home Depot which works great.…

for home it very good

clean very well

Amazing for homes with drains clogged with curly hair!

I can't believe how well this work, pulling huge clumps of my and my daughters' thick curly hair from the bathroom sink and shower. Much more effective than the Drano we typically use and much gentler on our septic system. I definitely wouldn't use the tool more than once, but the price is so reasonable and the tool so effective, I'll definitely buy again.

this is a must have for all to have in their homes

Has anyone used this to clean out a bathroom sink overflow? If so how did it work?

I have. It got the higher up clogs. There were other clogs further down near the trap and I ended up having to buy a drain auger at Home Depot. I recommend you do that since these are only good for one or two uses. The drain augers are reusable and can get all the way to the trap and beyond.

A home tool kit essential

Great pricing on two ss pick-up tools with 5 drain snakes. Appropriately named (snake) as they always seem to have slithered away by themselves when I needed to use the pick up tools. as far as the orange drain cleaning tools, well beware when using them as not only will they pull up some disgusting looking stuff out of your drains but also splatter the black gook allover the bathroom! Be sure to use an old towel of cloth over the drain when removing the snake.

must have item for everyone who lives in a house

…I live at home with 3 sisters and they shed so much hair that its almost impossible for them to not clog a sink or drain by accident. using these tools, I have unclogged a majority of drains at home, and makes drains perform like they should.

Great kit for cleaning drains.

…This combined with having two kids in the home, clogs, things being dropped in the sinks, etc also is something we deal with.…

Home Toilet Auger

It is a hell of a lot easier the then using a plunger when you have an old bad back.

Great job

…By the time I returned home my auger had arrived in the mail. … This is now a good addition to my home tool collection and the price is right.

Great for home use

Used for freeing blockage from hard stools - Saved $100 plumber calls 3 times so far. Seems equal to more expensive professional reamers - great value for the money.

Excellent Product!

I bought this toilet Auger because one of our toilets was frequently clogging up and traditional home remedies were not working.…
