I just bought a 100' 3/4" cabled drain snake used, and of course I forgot to make sure there was a manual. I was wondering if some one could give me a basic how to? Not sure if there is one on the forum already, I didn't see anything so I thought I'd ask. A very basic starter is what I was looking for, like: Do I start the machine first and then while it is spinning feed it into the drain, or feed it in first and when I've hit the clog then turn the machine on? And any other basic essentials i"ve not thought of.
I know it may not seem like it but I am pretty alright with things like this, just haven't used one before and thought I'd make sure and ask the experts before having a go. I would have hired an expert but I live here out in the middle of nowhere and the fee for them driving out even is liable to break me. So thanks very much for any help.
