"This is probably better suited to drains rather than gutters which is what I needed. Its so flexible to be unwieldy when trying to drag the coil through leaves and moss in the gutter. The semi circle blade designed for gutters kept catching on the gutter supports to be unusable. The double coil did make a difference and I was able to clear some of the muck."

Pros: sturdily built
Cons: think about what you are doing!
"Bought these to unblock a sewer. Worked very well and removed all of blockage easily. Do need to be careful to ensure it doesn't get stuck and that blockage does not just get pushed further down sewer. My sewer is not very deep so not really had to bend them very much - remember to twist the right way when in sewer to ensure they don't become disconnected!! Have now also used to clear gutter blocked with leaves - excellent."

Pros: build quality, easy to use, fraction of the price to call out specialist
Cons: a little more expensive than competitor products
"Great product! Well built and easy to put together and use.
Took a chance and bought this instead of calling out a specialist to unblock our drains. I was surprised just how easy it was. 10 minutes of pushing and turning with the screw head and the blockage was removed.
Awesome!!

Pros: built for the job
Cons: none
"Bought this and 1 hour later my drain was clear. Well made with flexible rods and good quality brass fittings.
Saved me a few bob on plumbers bills!
Additional rods are also available, so if you have a long pipe you don't need to buy all the tools again."

Pros: very easy to use even for a novice
"FANTASTIC KIT! Does exactly what is says. Brought after drain blocked on a Sunday & didn't want to call out a plumber. Went to a competitors site but although their product was cheaper & they were closer the review said their product was rubbish & broke easily.
The reviews here were good so went straight out and brought the kit. Staff in shop were really helpful and knew their stuff to, and gave me some great tips.
Home & 2 hours later & drain now clear and flowing freely.
