    The presser WILL NOT RELEASE if there is a GOOD SECURE seal. You SHOULD NOT be using this tool on most blockages as it can & will blow apart weak seals, connections, etc... This tool should also NOT be used if you cannot achieve the PROPER seal with your available rubber ends or if you see any weak links.

    You have to recon the situation and be smart about it.

    When used correctly with caution it seldom causes trouble.

    I learned really quick
    Would you post the correct way to achieve the proper seal(s)?

      Use the correct size rubber end or the hose and wet rags for the drain and always test with low pressure first.

      An example of what not to do would be to use a round rubber end on a elongated urinal drain and then bitc* & complain you got a face full of pee.

        Used my Ram today. There are certain uses for it that experience teaches.
        One of my commercial customers was made happy on a fly by job.

        Still have not the gonads to use it on a Urinal.

          After reading various posts from SewerRatz,A-Bear and others talking well of the Ram,I decided to buy one,it has sometimes worked,but for me-mostly not.Yet,I feel as if I have not devoted enough time trying to master the process,in the meantime,it will stay around untill I use it again.

            It is not a every day go to tool but it is a life saver if used properly when needed.

              you're best luck will be in a shower or a floor drain, floor sink. anything with an overflow is asking for a soaking. I've hung mine out to dry well over 7 years ago.

              my cheap power plunger works easier and keeps me dry. allows me to push and pull water. great for draining out fixtures without using a wet dry vac.

                        Used my Ram today.

                        Took a while to recognize when and how to use it but it makes me money
                        and has gotten the job done when needed.

                        Going to have to get a Ro Pump and learn the curve.

                        What I really want to do is visit Chicago and AJ Coleman.

                        Good thing I'm not married,
                        don't have to ask permission for new toys.

                          You might want to ask around it seams the RoPump is a POS and your best bet would be the harbor freight POS, lol
