Rated 5 out of 5 by Bosanke from The auger was very effective at clearing the blockage. Instructions/suggestions for sanitary cleaning should be provided. PRO: The auger was very effective at clearing the blockage. Very easy to use. CON: Effective method to "flush" the equipment with clean water to remove debris internal to tubes is not provided. RECOMMENDATION: Instructions/suggestions for sanitary cleaning of the auger for the infrequent use by homeowner would be beneficial. Recommend modification to upper guide tube to permit a cleaning "purge hole" in order to flush tubes and auger out the bulb end. Caution when install and removing from toilet avoid contact of the bulb end with the toilet porcelain as it will leave a "pencil" mark on the porcelain under the water line which is hard to remove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EMBERSRIDGID from ONE OF THE BEST I tried an 8.99 auger. It got the job done, but it was difficult to use and wasn't able to get the full 3' in. Thank goodness enough got in to reach the clog. Just for fun, I tried this Ridgid because I had bought both just in case. The difference in ease of use was amazing. Much better built. The cable was bigger, and I was concerned that it wouldn't negotiate the bends easily. I was wrong. It went in much easier than the smaller 8.99 auger. I'm sure it will take care of clogs like a champ if I ever have to use it again...hope I don't. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by bocude from Really Good I used this tool to clean my drain. I saved money by buying this tool. It would have coasted almost 2 times more to get a pro to do the same job. But it takes a little time to learn to use this tool and make it work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by randee1 from K-6 toilet auger plastic at hand grip where cable extends from is nor heavy duty enough. that is the torque stress position of this tool when you turn it to start it thru the trap of the toilet you are working on. trap ways differ from toilet to toilet and entry is is difficult at times as this is a place where most clogs occur. when the cable is extended this plastic coupling and hand grip is where the break happens because of the wobble in the shaft until it gets farther down in the shaft. I would recommend this for occasional use but not for a professional with everyday needs of this tool.

what is the differance between a drop head and bulb head toilet auger
which is better
Thank you for choosing RIDGID. A drop head auger leads into down drain pipes, it is especially good for back-to-back mounted fixtures and severe bends.

Any tips on cleaning the bulb head after it is used?
Thank you for contacting RIDGID. To clean the cable spray or rinse the end of the cable off with water, dry thoroughly, then coat the cable with any lubricant that has rust preventative properties.
