Ryobi will launch a new conduit product for the 18V One+ series during September-October. The Ryobi P4001 18V One+ Drain Auger has unclogging applications for drains up to 2 inches up to 25 feet. This one is really cool – the drain auger is very affordable at $69.97.
Of course, it will save the homeowner a lot of money. The Ryobi P4001 Drain Auger is a great alternative to calling a plumber. Ryobi's Drain Auger can help clear most common clogs for less than the price of a house call. Assuming, of course, that you don't mind doing the dirty work. I'm sure all wives will be delighted at the thought of adding the P4001 to the list of tools you already have at home. Even if you don't ask for it, there's a good chance the P4001 will show up as a Christmas present.
"I love the fact that Ryobi has added a cordless drain auger to the 18V One+ line. Focused on DIYers and homeowners, the Ryobi Drain Auger makes perfect sense when it comes to maintaining your home's plumbing.
