No hassle. Works well and quickly. Does precisely what it advertises. I had a clogged toilet filled to the brim, and it removed the clog without overspilling anything. The three-foot length is more than adequate to be able to "stand back" while you are doing the work. The extremely heavy-duty construction provides a no-nonsense feel to the operation of the product. If you've paid for a plumber to do this, you will definitely appreciate the low price !!!
I needed to get one of these today for...you know. Well I got it home, used it once and it didn't feel like it had worked. So I tried it a second time, a bit more forceful. Flushed the toilet and got more vacuum than before. But still not much, So I figured i'd let the bowl fill up and then try it. Voila! It worked and now the toilet is back to normal operations.
My kids don't get enough fiber in their diet and as a result, I frequently have to use a plunger. Although it often took a hundred or so plunges, it always worked. Until last night. I tried Drano. Nothing. I went to home depot to see what they had and lo and behold I saw this thing. They had a cheap looking thing for something like $8, but I wanted to make sure I got something that would work, so I bought this. It worked great. I just followed the instructions. It's not complicated. Just push the spring into the hole and turn with the crank. It drilled a hole through the middle of the obstruction. One flush later and everything was good to go. It was kind of messy cleaning it. I did this in the bathtub and cleaning consisted of spraying with the shower head while running a card through the cracks in the coil to breakup what was stuck inside.
here I was with a toilet stopped up! tried everything! Plunging, clothes hanger, Hot water and dishwashing liquid, still no go! so I called a Plumber? the price was service call $35.00 to come out and $65.00 per hour! and he said that if it got fixed within the 1st hour, still $65.00! so I started looking online? and then I read the reviews here! so I thought will I can get this for $35.00 after taxes so why not try? will I got it and with in 3 minutes I had the clogged toilet fixed! it goes down better than it ever did! this is a handy tool to have for home owners, and renters! it is built good and does the job! Yes I would recommend this tool to anyone!
Had a bad plug in the bathroom toilet, tried all of the normal things, plunging, draino, hot water ect.... none of that budged it. Took a quick ride to Home Depot, bought this 3 ft auger and presto, 2 min later clog gone, simple to use, and seems well made.
I tried to clear a clog previously with a cheaper, auger and had no luck what so ever. After reading a few of the reviews of this product I figured I'd give it a try before coughing up $105 (what it cost last time for a plumber).
It took me about 30 seconds to have my toilet flushing again; it worked immediately.
My toilet was clogged. It wasn't just clogged but I accidentally flushing down a large piece of plastic down to the toilet. It ended up trapped inside the S pipe. This plastic is the size of a scotch tape holder!!! My worst nightmare was to remove the toilet in order to unclog it. Well, I need the largest auger I could find and this one seems to fit the bill. Me and my father got to work once I got the unit. It took us some good 10 minutes and a lot of brute force. It works. What a relief!!! And saved us couple of hundreds of dollars too....
For the last 2 days my toilet was clogged. I tried using hot water and dish detergent, plunger, hanger, flushing and dumping water into bucket, septic tank material AND liquid plummer. However, none of the above worked so I purchased the 3ft. Rigid toilet auger. Well, THANK GOD it WORKED! It saved me some $$$ because I didn't have to call a plummer.
Search on youtube for this excellent video, "How to Clear a Toilet Clog using a Closet Auger" The plumber in the video recommends a 3 foot auger. I bought this one to clear an organic clog that was resistant to repeated efforts with a plunger. Two passes with the auger, and the toilet flushes like a champ. The auger wasn't cheap, but it is a lot less than a plumber charges.
My boyfriend severely clogged my toilet, and then made it worse by over-plunging the toilet and pulling up god-knows-what on top of whatever he had clogged the toilet with. I looked up toilet snakes online and saw this one had good ratings. So, despite his I-can-fix-it attitude, I ran out and bought this.
It took only two flushes and the toilet, which was clogged for four hours, was unclogged. The handles are nice and big, so my grip was steady. One is stationary, and the other is meant to help wind the snake down into the toilet. I wound it a few times, tried to flush, and then repeated when that failed. The second attempt was what cleared the drain.
It was very, very simply to use. I'm really glad I bought this. It'll come in handy when he decides to "blow it up" again.

Review 16 for 3 ft. Toilet Auger
Saved me $300 and worked like a champ
PostedOctober 22, 2011
Wonderful. worked perfectly and allowed me to tell the widely advertised national plumber service to take their $350 quote and get off my property. All it took was 3 minutes and a little elbow grease and things were back to normal. Highly recommended.
I actually bought the 6' version to be sure it would work without removing the toilet.
Problem was I would plunge and use one of those little snakes, the toilet would work OK for a day or two, but continually get slower until it became unusable. Plunge and snake again, same problem 2-3 days later.
This auger made it flush like the bottom dropping out of a bucket!
Here's the kicker. Since it worked on one toilet, I thought I might as well clean out the other ones in my house, though they seemed to be OK. Turns out it pulled a 6" pencil out of one of the them I had no idea was there!
Again, I used the 6' version, but am sure this 3' would be adequate for most problems.
Easy to use and store. One great product for the homeowner.
My brand new beautiful Kohler toilet clogged so bad, and nothing we did would unclog it. I was so stressed out, I didn't want to pay a fortune for a plumber to come out, especially right after I paid one to install the toilet in the first place. I have never experienced a tough clog that a plunger wouldn't remedy. I did my research on augers, reading reviewers of far less superior quality than this one, and they all complained how cheaply they were made and how they scratched the bowls of their toilets. Well, since I just paid almost $450 just for my new toilet, I wasn't going to scratch it. I had my husband pick this up and HD, and I am so glad we purchased this one, even though it cost way more than the cheaper one. It worked like a champ and only took around 3 minutes for the clog to go away. The metal on the part of the auger that touches the opening of the bowl is coated in plastic, which is why it didn't scratch the toilet. I would highly reccomend this auger to anyone who ows a home. It will come in handy in the future and save $$ from hiring a plumber.
Well.......I read reviews and decided to get this one as I had a clogged toilet problem for a few days and the plunger wasn't helping. I was skeptical about getting an auger / snake, but it was a good thing that I got this one. Otherwise the "Spongebob toothpaste" tube that turned out to be the problem would have led to a large plumber bill. This auger drilled it's coils right into that tube of toothpaste and I was able pull that sucker right out and problem solved!!! Check youtube for awesome instructional videos on using an auger to fix your toilet problems. And don't make the mistake of getting a cheap auger with plastic parts because you are going to end up buying this one after the cheap one breaks.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, does the job, saves you $$$ - no need to call a plumber anymore, sturdy and solid construction
Toilet's plugged again and I refused to pay $105 for a plumber to do the job for me. Researched a little about toilet snakes and augers and decided upon the Ridgid 3' toilet auger. All I can say is that it was ridiculously easy to use and within two minutes the toilet was flushing and back to normal. AND, I saved $70 by doing it myself!
Pros: Reliable, Good Instructions, very easy to use, does not bind or kin, fast fast fast!
