The Root Auger
The Root Auger is designed to be used to remove a root blockage from the pipeline.
Attach the tool to the end of the rods and insert into the pipeline. When the blockage is reached, rotate the rods. Once the auger is screwed into the roots, use a pump action to cut the root hairs.
If the roots cannot be cut, use a root saw with a power rodder.
Be sure to complete this process, by using a Flat Wire Brush after using your Root Auger to shave back any left over roots in your pipe.
