Toilet auger: "Downhead" or "Regular" boring gimlet?
I am buying a toilet auger and trying to decide between two types. The two options for the boring gimlet head are regular or downhead. From what I can tell, the difference is that the downhead has a slight angle built into it while the regular head does not.
The one I bought is a down head. helps to make the bend around some of the tight p-traps.
The bigger bonus, if you ask me is the telescoping handle. You get the General wire auger with the telescoping handle, you're actually sending that thing a few feet down into your drain, which never hurts.
