This kit has been primarily designed for the professional chimney sweep that has completed the NACS Chimney Sweep Training Course and needs the minimum amount for a sweeps van check and assessment. With this kit you can sweep all sizes of liners from 4" upwards. 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. The kit comes with a selection of heads, for removing tar and birds’ nests, adaptors for manual brushes plus a selection of useful RPS kit.
The power heads supplied are a 5"/125mm SnapLok 8mm, 9"/230mm SnapLok Bullet for liners, 18"/450mm Snaplok Power Whip head and the superb 24" Death Star Whip Head with 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.
The SnapLok Double Button system is highly efficient and takes less than 30 seconds to connect all the double button lock rods together, plus having dual buttons there is no fear of rod disconnection in the flue as compared to single button systems! The rods are all completely corrosion resistant as the ferrules/fittings are all high grade steel, apart from the 12mm rods which are manufactured from aircraft aluminium, this keeps the rods really light and therefore flow a lot smoother in a steel liner, with no ‘liner slap’ that occurs with heavy brass fittings. All the rods are double crimped on either side of the rod ferrule/fitting. There is also a sizeable tolerance so that when the rods are connected there is enough movement to prevent the soot from jamming the rods together and therefore aids in the disconnecting of the rods.
The liner rods are white in colour and the larger 15mm/18mm rods are black in colour. 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.
