As for the Food Fest, should do something towards the end of this month. I love to have a huge bbq.[/QUOTE]
Im bringing the whole family up I haven't been back home in a while :D
I had the bulb screw off my ridgid drop head auger in a washer drain
seems like this comes up a few times a year and it's always been lopsided towards the general 6' bulb end.
i have both the ridgid and general with and with and without the drop heads.
my #1 go to tool is the proper plunger and my next go to is the general bulb auger.
a drop head is just too bulky for todays low flow toilets.
I like the General with the small bulbhead. After breaking a bowl trap once with the drop head, I quit using it and use the bulbhead 6 footer only.:smash:
I have an old General, and a year or two ago I got a new Ridgid. The Ridgid just doesn't seem to work well. I always wind up going back to the General. Both are 6'. General has changeable heads. I used to also use it occasionally to clear a trap arm with a small drop head.
For closets, it has a bell-shaped spiral screw, unlike Ridgid's ball-shaped one, and is better at picking up objects.
The Ridgid one was only $50, and I'd probably have to pay $150 for a new General.
Sometimes, no closet auger will get it, period. Then I take them home and break them open to find out why.
