Drain Rods & Tools

Solid rods for unblocking of pipelines

Drain rods are solid tubes used, along with various attachments, to remove blockages from pipelines.  For very tough or solid blockages such as set concrete, we would recommend the use of a Picote Miller machine, which is driven by electrical power, instead - take a look at the Picote Drain Cleaning area of the site.

Drain rod attachments include:

  • Brushes - for sweeping through the drain
  • Wormscrews to pick up loose rags, paper etc
  • Scrapers to break up mud and silt
  • Plungers to push a blockage further along the pipeline

The Drain Tool Sets that S1E sell, include 10 drain rods, plus selected attachments.

The Lockfast joint

Rods can be attached to each by a Lockfast joint, to extend their reach.

These Lockfast joints include with an hexagonal locking nut.

The rods cannot then come undone whichever way the rods are twisted when down the drain.

Use in patch repair

Drain rods can be used to push patch repair packers down the pipe to the correct location of the damage to position the patch.

When used in this way a separate air line will be required to connect the packer to a compressor or other air source to inflate it.

Pipe Doctor packers are configured to be used with air push rods, that combine the the drain rod for positioning the packer and the air line for inflating it.  If Drain rods are used instead, then a packer drain rod adaptor is necessary for attaching the drain rods.  The packers are available from the Pipe Doctor range within the website and the Adaptors and Gauges are available from the Air Push Rod & Inflation Equipment area of this Everyday Essentials part of the site.
