    Drain auger with drill attachment

    Our kitchen sink clogged up recently. At first, I tried using a drain auger my dad purchased from the 80s. After fighting with it for maybe 15 minutes, I got fed up and went onto Harbor Freight online to see if they had anything. I remembered that our plumbers usually use a drain auger with a drill attached. So, I figured that there's gotta be a consumer device.

    The main emphasis is there is a stem on the auger that allows you to attach it to a power tool. The power tool turns the cable inside the pipe for you, making it easier to crawl forward through the pipe. I was able to clear out the pipe just enough to pour bio-cleaner down the drain so it could eat whatever bio-material was in the drain. A week later, our shower was clogged. Stuffed this down the pipe and it pulled out 6 inches of hair.

    You can get it from Harbor Freight. It comes in:
    15 ft. for $10
    https://www.harborfreight.com/15-ft-...ger-93483.html
    25 ft. for $15
    https://www.harborfreight.com/25-ft-...ent-66262.html

    This tool has been so much of a time saver I thought the best place to post it would be a forum where conservatives would know the value of having a time saving tool.

    I have a plug that once you put it into the drain you flip three levers that wedge it in there, tightly. On the top of a plug is a ubiquitous hose adapter. Hook up a hose, turn it on...and it unclogs pretty much anything.
    You're only as good as your last performance.

    Got a 1/4" 25' hand crank, and a 1/2" 50' electric motor powered ass kicker.

    If one frees a blockage twice it pays for both, compared to calling a plumber.

    When you have kids thats a must have, to be honest I had one in the 70s...didnt look like that was cruder, no cannister just a 10 ft cable that turned and spun as it went down and hit all sides of the pipe as it went down...

    When we first moved into this house our plumbing would stop up about once a month. After a year as you can guess I knew all the plumbers working for the company that I used. So I rented an auger & snaked the drain myself. When I pulled it out I laid out the auger line & saw that it extended off my property. After a little "discussion" with the city they came out & found that the main was faulty. They repaired it (& the next day dug up my neighbors main & fixed it - they had the same problem). Haven't had a clog since then.

    I use harsh chemical drain cleaners, I know the bacteria and slime doesn't like the acid bath it gets, and the lefty pinko greenies don't like me using it either since it eventually finds it's way to our rivers and streams, a win/win.

    Unless you have PVC pipe, a plumber told me that chemical cleaner isn't good for cast-iron pipes. Consider getting some bio-cleaner. It's safer on the pipes and the environment.
