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 !!!
This auger was a good purchase. It is easy to use and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. This three foot length auger is perfect for a small and tight toilet area. Three feet should be long enough for most clogs because it reaches all the way to the flange. Being only three foot long made it easier to remove and clean the auger when the job was finished. It works perfectly taking less than two minutes to unclog the toilet, did not damage the porcelain bowl and is a quality product that will last a lifetime.
This was my first experience with a closet auger, I have never had a clog that would require one. This product was straight forward and easy to use. I got the clog with my first attempt. I would defiantly recommend this auger to anyone in need of such a tool.
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.
I had a severely clogged toilet, and no element of plunging was making a difference. Of course, it was the weekend and so I didn't want to pay to have a plumber come out. Having watched a youtube video of a woman using a toilet auger, it looked relatively easy so I decided to give it a shot. This worked perfectly! It was so easy to use (a simple three-step process), and my terrifyingly filled toilet started flowing again. I'd highly recommend this project to anyone facing a similar challenge - and am thrilled to now have this in my arsenal for now on!
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.
This worked exactly as described. It was easy to use and, almost as important, easier than I expected to clean. It's very sturdy and easy to maintain control the whole time. I hope you don't need one, but if so, this is the one to get.
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!
I bought this tool because the home remedies I found online were not working on my toilet. I have 0 home repair or plumbing experience, but this was really easy to use and it got the job done. I don't know what a plumber visit would have cost, but I'm sure it would have been a lot more expensive. Overall a great buy.
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.
Had a clogged toilet a few weeks ago plumber charged $180 to unclog. When it happened this time I was pretty sure I knew what the problem was. Best money ever spent and I`m sure I will be reusing it occasionally. Very easy to use.

Review 15 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.
It unclogged my toilet on the first try. A plunger just didn't work. I almost bought the cheaper plastic one to try to save some money, but I decided on this one, and I'm glad I did. The build quality is great, it will last for ever. And compared to a $150 plumber visit, this more than paid for itself on the first use.
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 was determined I was going to fix toilet issue myself and with great assistance from the person at HD, I was able to go home and resolve the issue. Took the online advice of getting the more expensive version which seemed very sturdy and was incredibly easy to use.....much cheaper than calling a plumber!
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.
