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 toilet that was not flushing very well and had clogged before. I was about ready to call a plumber, but gave this a try and it solved the problem.

Review 3 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 have an AS Cadet short toilet which was clogged with waste, ironically on same evening my car keys went missing. I'm speculating that my 1.5 yr old daughter threw the keys in the toilet, thus leading to clog. The water in toilet bowl just doesn't completely flush, and after trying plunger, I did some research and was introduced with this. Works as advertised, now I can get some rest! Thanks to HD for staying open till 9.
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!
Did the job quick and easy. Took all of 30 seconds for a pair of underwear & a piece of tennis ball (darn dogs...) Dried easily with no rusting. I just toweled it off and left it in the tub over night.
For those who've never used one before: make sure to fully retract before starting to snake (to prevent scratching the bowel) & always turn counter clock wise. DON'T force anything.
It took me about 30 sec. to clear the clog with this handy tool. I was very careful to keep the plastic sleeve inserted all the way in the drain so as not to scratch the bowl.
This wonderful little tool just saved me at least $110: last week I had a clog that let the bowl drain very slowly but not flush. The plunger didn't help, the plumber came out and the first time he flushed the toilet it cleared - after I had flushed it probably 100 times. He did auger it just to be sure. So basically I paid $150 to have someone flush my toilet.
3 days later it clogged the same way again. I tried the plunger again, then hot water (and I mean gallons and gallons of hot water) and dish soap and neither helped.
The plumber had told me if I put liquid drain cleaner down the toilet he wouldn't come out because it gets acid on his auger. So, long story short I went to HD, picked up this auger, drove home, and cleared the clog first time. It wasn't even hard to push the auger down the drain, I just cranked and pushed.
Thanks to everyone who gave such great reviews, and to the videos on youtube that showed how to use it.
I'm a realtor and I'll probably give one of these as a housewarming gift to each of my clients when they buy a home (they already think I'm a little weird because I give them a wrench to shut off the gas in case of an earthquake).
I had a glass airwick freshner plugged into socket next to the toilet, it fell and broke into the toilet. I didn't want to cut my hands, and it appeared most of the glass was gone, therefore I flushed the toiled. The next morning my toilet was clogged, my friend came over with a plunger, it didn't work, the following day he came over with a larger plunger, that made the problem worst, neither worked. I decided to purchase the RIGIT TOILET 3 FT AUGER and a friend used it and it cleared the toilet within 5 minutes ... this item is excellent. I first give thanks to the The Lord second ...this item worked perfect.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks
Mother-in-law flushed spaghetti sauce down the toilet,she didn't bother taking sausages out.Went to home Depot and got the 3 foot auger.Toilet was fixed within 2 minutes,easy to figure out how to use and it is not cheaply made.It got a hold of the sausage and pulled it right out.
Woke at 3:00am to find our toilet clogged. Worked for several hours trying to unclog by plunging then using a 3/8" drain snake. Was unsuccessful.
Began to suspect wife dropped something in toilet. She woke up and I asked and she said yes a plastic tube of moisturizer cream.
Was prepared to tear toilet out, unclog then remount. But first saw great reviews given this tool by plumbers and customers. Spent the money, brought it home and within 10-minutes had the toilet unclogged.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, Good Instructions, works as advertised
dozens of plunger pumps, mess everywhere....nothing. liquid dishwasher soap, wait an hour....nothing. pour drain solution, wait overnight....nothing. bought this auger, read instructions, 25 seconds later....SUCCESS! every home should have one.
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!
I had a clogged toilet that did not budge, I tried the plunger and the dish washing soap but nothing worked. So I started looking around and found this item on youtube and looked for it in my nearest Home Depot and they hadf it. It was so esy to use and light weight. It worked so fast, I would highly recommend. Thanx RIDGID.
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....
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 !!!
