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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
After attempting to plunge the toilet for 45 minutes and making no progress, I purchased the RIDGID 3ft Toilet Auger at a local Home Depot based on the ratings and reviews from HomeDepot.com. The 3ft auger quickly dislodged a plastic spoon that had somehow ended up in the toilet. As happy as I am to be able to use my toilet again, I still wonder how the plastic spoon ended up there.
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.
Before purchasing this auger I researched it at the Home Depot web site. I saw a lot of glowing reviews, however I am always skeptical of online opinions. Despite this, I decided to purchase it and try it on a problem toilet in the master bathroom. All I can say now is, I'm a believer! I'll echo the point of one review I read...I tried a plunger and liquid drain cleaners, and they did not work. I tried this ONCE, and the toilet flushes BETTER than before there was really a problem. Some may scoff at the price of this auger over others, but I look at it this way: you get what you pay for, it works, and has already paid for itself by avoiding a plumbing service call, and will probably help avoid some service calls in the future as well!
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.
