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.
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.
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.

Review 5 for 3 ft. Toilet Auger
Quick and simple
PostedSeptember 18, 2011
Brought this product after the kids stuffed the toliet with something; After hours of endless plunging and scraping my toliet bowl with coat hangers, i read the reviews, here at home Depot and quickly purchased one; five minutes later it was uncloged.
I had my toilet clogged in my masterbed room after my daughter that I am pottie training put tissue and baby wipes into it.. Shortly after that my husband fished it off we tried every liquid drain declogger; we decided to rent a mini rooter after seeing what they charge we went ahead and purshased the Rigid in one attempt in cleared our clogg and we were back to flushing normal.
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.
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!
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.
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 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!
I was very skeptical about how well this auger would work but I was greatly surprised! The combination of the heavy duty cable, the design of the handle and crank mechanics made very easy work of a stubborn situation. What chemicals and detergents and endless plunging couldn't do, this piece of equipment did in one easy try. Well worth it's price!
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.
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.
I ran out to my local HD after reading some reviews and figured for 35 bucks it couldn't hurt to try before committing to pay a plumber to come out and clear my toilet. It took less time for me to go to my local HD, buy the product, get home, and unclog my toilet than it would have been to even get a plumber to come to my house not to mention the savings! This thing paid for itself at least 3-4 times over in just its first use!
