I have used this electric snake plenty o times lately and it does do a good job gettin the "you know what" out of the turlet. Before I bought this little machine, I had to practically get my face down in the dirty water, plungin and plungin away. It never worked!
I bought this snake and BINGO, no more clogged dung. I do recommend this product, you won't regret it.

I live in a single family house and In the approximately 6 weeks I've owned this, I've already used it 3 times. Yes, my situation is that bad. Which is why I bought this since I didn't want to pay $125 each time I needed a plumber, and I can't get one at the exact time I need one like at bed time. And their machines are dirty and messy and I spend a lot of time cleaning up after them. Well, no more, I think. I have this parked right next to my main drain where it goes out to the street. Anytime I need it, it's right there and it works. I used to use a 50ft line which I fished in by hand, but getting it thru the turns was frustrating. Because this drum is constantly twisting the snake in, it's no problem anymore. It comes with a few attachments, but I've yet to find a really good one. The 75ft is nice and long, but I wished I could have gotten it with a 100ft. length. I think I can buy it and switch it, but I would've preferred to not have had to pay additional for it. It is pretty smooth and not too loud, as it's not really as big and powerful as the professional sizes. But so far it's done the job. Since the snake is contained in the drum, the drips from the snake after pulling it back in is self contained. It also has wheels and an extendable handle should you need to move it, and it's not super heavy to lift either. Just a couple more uses, and it will have paid for itself! You can't imagine how I feel when I start seeing the water rush thru and then the familiar smell of the sewer air rushes out to greet me, telling me that it's clear now!

Got really tired of calling plumber every time a "snake" is needed, and my little hand-held just doesn't do it. Plus my 4" patio drains were clogged.
This puppy is heavy-duty & a bit pricey, but worth it. Manual is actually written in excellent American English! Very gratifying to extract all that mud, roots etc.
Don't forget to think about what's along the way in your system, e.g. sump pump, don't want to drill a hole through that...
Told my buddies about this & look forward to loaning it to them as needed.
One little puzzle: attachments came on a steel ring that I had to break open -- ??
