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.

Features

  • Clears clogged sinks, tubs, and laundry drains in 1-1/4” to 3” lines.
  • Variable speed power cable feed drives and retrieves cable at up to 16 ft. per minute.
  • Four-foot guide tube keeps hands and job site clean.
  • Pneumatic foot pedal controls motor speed.
  • Quick-change cartridge makes switching cables clean and easy.
  • Holds 50 ft. of 1/4″ or 5/16″, or 35 ft. of 3/8″ Flexicore cable.
  • Flexicore wire rope center cables have unequaled strength yet the right amount of flexibility.
  • Made in U.S.A.

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 – another way the Drain-Rooter PH is a clean machine.

Foot Pedal

The drum speed can be varied by changing pressure on the foot pedal.

Flexicore®Cable

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

Success Stories

“Drain cleaning can be pretty messy, and you expect to see some nasty stuff,” he admits, “But imagine my surprise when my Super-Vee™ once snaked a Batman toy from a line. I still don’t know how I did it!”

John Comerford Jr Cleveland, OH

I offer a 30-day warranty on every drain-cleaning job, but I can’t give a warranty if I don’t do the job right, and I can’t do the job right if I don’t have the right tools. That’s why I run my whole company with General products, they enhance our professional image!

Chris Fantauzzo Trenton, NJ

General equipment is durable, and takes a beating,” he says. “We use our General tools 24/7 – 365 days a year, and they don’t fail us. General equipment lets us power through tough problems that our competitors walk away from!
