Storage Reel

The storage reel makes it very easy to store your Clog Hog.

Clog Hog

- 06/08/2015

I was extremely pleased with the success of the Clog Hog in clearing my plastic landscaping pipe that had clogged with stones and mud. The pipe was used to allow my pool to be backwashed and had clogged over time. Everytime I backwashed or drained the pool I was flooding the garage. In less than 10 minutes the drain was opened. It fed in easily with the power washer and was effortless and very successful. The storage reel allows me to keep the Clog Hog out of the way in the garage without risk of kinking the hose until next time I need it.

Storage Reel Review

- 07/14/2015

I recieved the Clog Hog and Storage reel several weeks ago and have used it a few times since. I can't imagine not having the storage reel for the hose. It is extremely easy to use, reels up the hose quickly, and allows you to store it in a manner that is easily accessible and ready to go. Although the unit is made out of plastic it appears to be of a heavier well made quality that should provide a long service life and will not rust (big bonus when working around moisture and wrapping up damp hoses. The one additional comment that I would like to make concerning improvements would be some way to easily pull apart the reel so that the hose can be removed as one unit. This would help when you are working in small spaces where it is difficult to completely unwind the hose. This isn't something that is completely necessary but would help in certain instances.

Good not great

The storage reel has some good features and some that could be improved.
The good: intelligent design and internal hand hold makes it easy to wind the hose. The fold away handle keeps the reel sleek looking and compact for storage
Needs improvement: quality of materials seems a bit low. Plastic doesn't feel like it's going to hold up. I don't intend on beating it up but it could be better. Also, it needs something to hold the start of the hose to make the initial winding stay on the reel. I use one hand on the crank and the other on the inside - I don't have one to spare to hold the hose as I start winding.
Overall - a good product that could be great with a few minor upgrades.

Response from Clog Hog:
Justin, thank you for your detailed review. It seems possible that you might not have tried the tapered slot on one edge of the reel that's designed to secure the sewer jetter before winding. We definitely recommend that you use this feature the next time you store your drain cleaner.

Note that we've tested a great many different storage reels with Clog Hog products, and believe that ours is by far the best - with one possible exception. There's a competing manufacturer that makes plastic storage reels designed for military and rescue organizations. We suspect that this reel has some of the qualities you're looking for - including very dense, rigid plastic material. However this military-grade product sells for around twenty (20) times the cost of your Clog Hog storage reel. If you'd like information about this competing manufacturer, please email us and we'd be glad to send you their details.

Wish it has a natural way to hang the spool on a wall or it had a base like stand to it for the floor or shelf.
Still handy.
