Mighty Snake Review
About six weeks ago I stated that I had never seen an As Seen on TV drain snake before – and now I have seen two in late 2017. That first item was Spin Plumber, a snake attachment that can be used with any power drill. Today I’m looking at Mighty Snake, which uses a similar design but is a self-contained unit.
Mighty Snake looks like a small power drill with a small drain snake as its attachment. To use Mighty Snake, you simply press the button as you would with a power drill, and insert the snake into your problem drain. The metal coil at the end will grab hair and debris, which can be easily removed. Because of its coil design, Mighty Snake will probably be best at removing hair, rather than buildup along the walls of the pipes.
Keep in mind that Mighty Snake will only reach clogs that are within a couple of feet from the opening. Clogs deeper than that will be out of reach. You’ll also want to disengage the unit before pulling debris out of the drain, or you could end up wearing bits of grime.
I wouldn’t expect Mighty Snake to be made of the highest quality materials, but because clogs are usually an infrequent problem, I would expect this to be sufficient to get the job done. Mighty Snake offers the typical As Seen on TV “double offer” in which you can add a second Mighty Snake for another $10. This extra fee is not refundable, should you decide not to keep it. I doubt most consumers would have enough use for something like this to warrant paying for a second unit.
Although the website for Mighty Snake was registered back in January 2017, I have only recently seen it advertising, which tells me this could be a test-marketed item. If that’s the case, you may want to exercise a bit of patience during the shipping process. You may be interested in my video below discussing some ways that some companies test market As Seen on TV items.
This Cobra 25-Foot Power Snake also attaches to a power drill and is designed to clear drains of hair and other debris. If cost is a factor, you may want to take a look at this $7 drain auger that has pretty good ratings for its price range.
