    I like their tool tip: Always start out with a straight auger to try and determine what you are trying to clean.

    The Ridgid straight auger has a reputation of breaking off in roots.
    Is that how you tell there's roots in that there line?

      3" or 4" line? A 3" or 4" pear. For 1.25"-2" a 5/8 reverse auger powered by drill. Screw exploritory blades or ends, get that line open and properly cleaned the first time, and most of the time you'll know by what you bring back on the cable or by feel. If there's still questions after the line has been cleaned then break out the camera.

        For me, interior lines are more sludge related, paper, and hair. Typically a 4 blade cutter.

        Small bore and hard to navigate lines get the Rick Reverse Auger.

        Exterior lines Im usually using a spiral root saw as thats what I typically encounter.

        Rick.
