The straight auger is a very simple drain cable tool. It is basically simply a wide-wound extension of the drain cleaning cable to which it is coupled. The advantage is that the diameter is minimal, as the drill is not wider than the drain cable. At the same time, the wire of the drill is further wound, so that the tool is noticeably more flexible than the drain cleaning cable. It glides very well through the pipe and acts as a kind of "guide spring" at the head of the drain cable, so that several 87 degree bends can be overcome in succession!
However, the use of the straight drill is not limited to guiding the drain cable. The spring steel wire is strong enough to allow the drain cable tool to drill out even slight drain blockages. This often already helps to let standing water drain off again. When the drain cable is retrieved from the pipe, the straight drill can often be seen to have been hit by the type of drain plugging. On the basis of this, other Drain cleaning tool specially designed for the blockage can now be used. The drain cleaning is thus very effective.
The straight augers from rak and from ROWO both have a T-Nut coupling with 16mm, 22mm or 32mm diameter. You can also use it to drain cleaning cables from ROTHENBERGER, REMS or RIDGID and are fully compatible with them. Depending on the drain cable, the range of application thus extends from 40mm to 200mm or more.
In addition, we offer straight augers of the brand E&R with square coupling, suitable for KaRo drain cleaning cables 10mm, 13mm, 16mm or 20mm diameter. You can equip your KaRo Handmatic, Flexmatic / Plus, Allround / Plus or the Master with it. The straight augers with T-Nut also fit naturally on the KaRo Viktor and KaRo Fortis drain cables.
All straight augers are made of high quality stainless spring steel wire and are of the best quality. Trust in the experience of ROKA Store when you buy!
