Ryobi P4001 18V One+ Drain Auger Preview

Ryobi P4001 application

Ryobi will be launching a new plumbing product into the 18V One+ line between September and October. Featuring unclogging applications for drains up to two inches, the Ryobi P4001 18V One+ Drain Auger can reach up to 25 feet. What’s really cool about this one – the drain auger is priced at a very affordable $69.97.

Surely it will save homeowners a lot of money. The Ryobi P4001 Drain Auger is a good alternative tool for calling a plumber. For the less than the price of his house call, Ryobi’s Drain Auger can help clear the most common clogs. Assuming you don’t mind doing the dirty work, of course. I am certain all wives will be delighted by the idea of adding P4001 to the list of tools you already have at home. There’s a pretty good chance the P4001 will show up as a Christmas gift even if you don’t ask for it.

“I love the fact Ryobi added a cordless drain auger to the 18V One+ family. With a focus on DIYers and homeowners, the Ryobi Drain Auger makes a lot of sense to help with the plumbing side of maintaining a home. Thanks to the excellent value that Ryobi tools present, the new Ryobi 18V One+ Drain Auger will pay for itself after the first use.”
