RER Spotlights the Latest Drain-cleaning equipment

General Pipe Cleaners

General Pipe Cleaners offers four new auto-feed power drain cleaners designed to blend the best of professional drain cleaners with the rugged reliability of rental machines. The four new models — the Speedrooter 92R (pictured), Metro-Rooter, Mini-Rooter XP and Drain-Rooter PH — all feature automatic feeds and open drum designs to make drain cleaning easier, cleaner, and faster for rental customers to use than manual machines. The automatic feed makes getting the cable into and out of the drain faster and easier. The variable speed drives and retracts cable at up to 20 feet per minute. The power feed and guide tube combination allows the cable to feed smoothly into the line while keeping the operator's hands clean and away from the spinning cable. The open drum design lets the rental provider see the condition of the cable after it comes back from rental so it can be cleaned and lubricated as necessary. An inner drum cage helps prevent abusive customers from tangling the cable inside the drum.

Ridge Tool

Ridgid offers the SeeSnake micro-Drain inspection system, which allows for quick inspection in places previously difficult to inspect.
