1.0 out of 5 stars UNABLE to save the day!!!, 24 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Draper 22171 4.7m Drain Cleaner (DIY & Tools)
Unfortunately, I would have to agree with Paul99. The threading on the tightening screw went after a few attempts at using this.

I bought this at Robert Dyas for around £14 on sale as it was an emergency and we needed it immediately - our kitchen sink was clogged because of the garbage waste disposal. After reading all the positive reviews, I thought this would save us a visit from a plumber. Unfortunately, the draper only ended up pushing the clog a bit further down as it started to coil in on (maybe why this is why the threading went??) itself so it didn't actually go down much further then the block. The plumber (who we ended up paying £90 on a Sunday) explained this to us and said that this was a common problem with these devices.

Obviously, I was gutted as we need to hire a plumber, but he was able to remove our clog in about 5 mins with his powered machine. However, because we were mucking around we ended up flooding our dishwasher, which as a result stopped working!

Needless to say I was disappointed in our DIY experience!
