Model DRZ-PH™ - General Pipe Cleaners

Looking for a cleaner way to clean drains? This drain cleaning machine is the answer. Light and powerful for its size, the Model DRZ and Model DRZ-PH are ideal for clearing clogged sinks, tubs, and laundry drains in 1-1/4″ to 3″ drain lines up to 50 ft. long. No need to wear your arms out holding a heavy machine over the drain or under the sink. The compact design let’s you operate the machine horizontally on the kitchen counter or vertically on the floor next to the tub. Use the pneumatic pedal to keep your hands free to control the feed and guide hose. And the silent motor won’t disturb your customers while on the job. Weighing as little as 30 lbs. this lightweight machine is easy to carry. Use the handle on top to get it to and from the job.



  • Clears clogged sinks, tubs, and laundry drains in 1-1/4” to 3” lines.
  • Compact, lightweight small line drain cleaner with easy carrying handle on top

  • Four foot guide tube keeps hands, and jobsite, clean.
  • Powerful yet silent motor spins cables up to 50 ft. down the line.
  • Quick-change cable cartridge system allows clean and easy cable changes.
  • Rugged rust resistant aluminum drum can carry 50 ft. of 1/4″ or 5/16”, or 35 ft. of 3/8” Flexicore cable.
  • Flexicore wire rope center cables have unequalled strength yet the right amount of flexibility.
  • Made in U.S.A.

Model DRZ-PH with Power Cable Feed

The variable speed power cable feed on the Model DRZ-PH gives you complete control as it feeds and retrieves the cable at up to 16 ft per minute. The four foot guide tube means you never have to touch the cable – so your hands, and the job site, stay clean.

Model DRZ Economy Drain Cleaner

The less expensive Model DRZ uses a Quick-Grip™ chuck instead of the variable speed power cable feed. It lets you quickly grip or release the cable with just a quarter turn. The tough impact resistant plastic drum carries up to 50′ of 1/4″ or 5/16″, or 35′ of 3/8″ Flexicore® wire rope center cable.

Cartridge Refill

To switch to a different diameter cable (or even connect two 3/8″ cables together), you just loosen three screws, pull the front of the drum off the cable, and load another cartridge. Changing takes less than a minute and turns what could be a messy job into a clean one. The tough plastic cartridges are so inexpensive, you’ll probably want to store all of your cables in them.

Flexicore® Cable

Heavy gauge wire is coiled around 49 strand wire rope and then heat treated. This cable has unequalled strength and the right amount of flexibility. It’s so tough, it has a one year warranty against defect or breakage.


Snake-Oil Classic

A great way to extend the life of drain cleaning tools & equipment

Snake-Oil Classic™ preserves and protects sewer cables against rust and corrosion. It’s better than common lubricants because its special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture and replaces it with a rust-resistant coating. You’ll significantly extend the life of your cables and sewer machine, including the drum, bearings and power cable feed rollers. Snake Oil Classic also includes a deodorizer to give equipment a fresh, clean smell. Available in quarts or gallons.

Rip through tough stoppages with the unique ClogChopper® multi-function cutting tools. Six self-sharpening blades dig into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale, and crystallized urine, without risking pipe damage.

The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic, and clay pipes. As it spins it also self-sharpens as it scrapes along the pipe walls. It’s excellent for clearing stacks, downspouts, mains, as well as for drain lining jobs.
