This kit has primarily been designed for the professional chimney sweep who is starting to get into rotary power sweeping. With this kit you can sweep 5", 6", 8" liners up to 10 metres and open flues up to 12 metres. You can use different rod sizes to sweep a flue, for example an open flue at 11 metres, use 6 of the 15mm rods and 5 of the 18mm rods. This kit comes with a selection of heads, for removing tar and birds nests, plus a selection of useful RPS kit.
The power heads supplied are a 9"/230mm SnapLok Bullet for liners, 18" Power Whip Head with 2.7mm whip line and a 24"/600mm SnapLok Death Star Whip head that includes the Scrub Shaft, plus spare Power Whip Line to fit in your own Power Whip Heads, of which the length of line can be adjusted very easily by removing the screw in the base of the head to allow the whip line be replaced for a different size.
This system is highly efficient and it takes less than 30 seconds to connect all the double button lock rods together. The rods are double crimped to the fittings/ferrules on either end of the rod. plus the steel is heat treated for extra strength/durability and double plated for extra corrosion resistance.
The liner rods are white in colour and the larger 15mm/18mm rods are black in colour and we do not make a white lead rod, as we feel that this is a weakness in the kit. Using the same rod as a lead rod every time makes that one lead rod very weak after a period of time, and in our experience using other systems this can lead to a breakage of the lead rod, so rotating all the rods in the kit is the preferred method of power sweeping.
