Nozzle kit

Performance Nozzle Kits from Spartan Tool have five main nozzles to tackle blockages. The nozzles come in a heavy-duty carrying case. Available in 3,000 psi and 4,000 psi versions for 3/8-inch or 1/2-inch hose, kits include an open-tipped penetrator nozzle, a closed-tipped standard jetting nozzle for maximum distance down the line, a heavy “rocket” nozzle that hugs the bottom of the line for clearing heavy sediment, a Q-style flusher nozzle with its main jets faced forward for downhill jetting when there is no other point of entry to the line, and a Warthog nozzle for 3- and 4-inch lines. 800/435-3866;


Flexible hose

SPIR STAR Silver Mongoose hose is a lightweight, flexible hose with a super-urethane outer cover. It is available in 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch inner diameter, and has a working pressure of 15,000 psi. 800/890-7827;


Cart-mounted jetter

The KJ-3100 waterjetter from RIDGID (3,000 psi/5 gpm) clears blockages in 2- to 10-inch drains. Powered by a 16 hp gasoline engine, it lets users reach remote or restricted-access drains. It is mounted on a heavy-duty two-wheeled cart that fits through standard doors and negotiates tight turns. The hose reel detaches from the cart for loading into service vehicles and carries 200 feet of 3/8-inch hose.

Pulse Action allows the cleaning head and hose to maneuver through traps and bends in the line. The high-pressure triplex pump has a corrosion-resistant forged brass head. The unit comes with a propulsion nozzle that helps to carry the hose quickly through pipes to obstructions, and a penetrating nozzle to cut through ice and sludge. 800/769-7743;


Pipe scraper

The Cak Tool from UEMSI uses a solid front blade and steel cables that scrape the walls of pipes. Once materials are broken free, the jets on the back flush them down. The unit can be attached to any root cutter motor system with a 1-inch main shaft. It comes with the main body, a 5- or 7-inch front solid blade, and three sets of cables in a choice of sizes (6 to 30 inches). 800/666-0766;


Duct rodders

Made-to-order Cobra, Python and Mini-Cobra duct rodders from Condux fit light- to heavy-duty applications. They all have glass-reinforced composite cores, jacketed in a tough plastic coating. Favorable electrical and thermal properties that make them safe for use in cable-occupied duct. Rodder cage sizes are matched to the diameter and length of each rod order. The lightweight cages offer sturdy construction and a hand-operated wheel brake. Duct rods come with a threaded end fitting on each end and a tapered head on the outward end. A number of optional end fitting accessories are available. 507/387-6576;
