Drain-Rooter PH™ - General Pipe Cleaners

Equipped with a variable speed power cable feed and variable speed motor, the Drain-Rooter PH makes drain cleaning jobs cleaner and easier.

The Drain-Rooter PH feeds and retrieves the cable at up to 16 feet per minute. A four-foot guide hose eliminates cable whipping, dirty fixtures and messy floors. And the drum speed can be varied by changing the pressure on the foot pedal, making it easier to thread the boring head through strainers or crossbars.The Drain-Rooter PH is a real labor-saver on long jobs or when working in a cramped area where the weight of the machine could get burdensome

The Drain-Rooter PH can be operated in both horizontal and vertical positions to get closer to the drain opening.
