It’s rare that I call a contractor to talk about a potential story for Cleaner and the person isn’t familiar with the magazine. I think only once have I had to explain that, yes, there’s a magazine for drain cleaners, and by the end of the conversation that guy wanted me to sign him up for a subscription.

Knowing our work is well received is a great feeling. The print magazine is only the start of what we offer, however, so I thought I’d touch on a couple of our other offerings you may not be as familiar with.

As you flip through each issue, you’ll see the page that highlights a few recent articles from the website. Those picks are really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our online content. Fresh new content is posted daily, covering topics ranging from what to do when your best employee quits, to the pros and cons of free inspections, business and technical tips, and industry news.

You can receive twice-weekly roundups of this content by signing up for our e-newsletters. If you’re interested in certain topics specifically, like plumbing or pipeline relining/rehab, for example, you can also sign up for alerts when we publish articles on that topic. Our topics are located on the top of the homepage if you want to explore them. We also feature product directories and content storefronts that showcase equipment from trusted manufacturers. If you’re a new subscriber and want to see back issues of the magazine, digital editions are all archived under the magazine tab.

Our most exciting opportunity was unfortunately put on hold for 2020, but is back on schedule for 2021 and beyond. The Wastewater Equipment Fair, or WEQ Fair, is a regional event that will travel to all corners of the United States, featuring live outdoor equipment demonstrations.

Exhibitors include manufacturers, dealers and distributors of drain cleaning machines, inspection equipment, combination machines, jetters and more.

The WEQ Fair was in Pennsylvania earlier this summer and the next one takes place in Nashville at Nissan Stadium on Sept. 14-15, 2021. Future events are already scheduled and there will be more to come, so there’s a good chance we’ll be coming to a location near you soon.

These events are a great way to see equipment in person and get to know regional dealers. We know not everyone can take extended time off work to travel, so our goal is to keep providing these regional events to make it easier. For more information, to register and to check for future dates, visit

Our goal at Cleaner is always to be a resource to help you elevate your business. Keep reading, and take advantage of our other offerings as well.

I hope you enjoy this month’s issue.
