AUSTRALIAN Pump Industries’ new Aussie Viper Mini Reel makes clearing drains in hard to access locations easy.

Designed for use with high pressure water blasters or sewer cleaning jetters with capacities of up to 5,000psi, the Aussie Viper is lightweight and super effective.

Originally considered as an accessory for Australian Pump high pressure drain cleaning jetters, the mini reel offers great advantages for plumbers and drainers in the clearing of blocked sewer lines or drains.

It comes with an integrated control system with gauge that enables the operator to exercise complete one man control of the machine and drain cleaning function at the drain rather than back at the jetter.

The reel carries 60m of 1/4" R8 high pressure lightweight sewer cleaning hose.

It can be equipped with a wide range of drain cleaning accessories including the unique Aussie Turbo Root Mulcher designed to chop through tree roots.

"Droughts make blocked drains more prevalent because tree roots find these moisture concentrations," said Aussie Pumps' Hamish Lorenz. "Tree roots will travel up to 10m or 20m to locate a blockage and its water supply."

"Drain cleaning using Aussie high pressure jetters is becoming increasingly popular because it is done efficiently and without excavation. We say "no more digging",” said Mr Lorenz.

The mini reel consists of a heavy duty 5,000psi rated reel mounted in a stainless steel carry frame that includes quick couplers for ease of connection to the jetter or various accessories.

Australian Pump Industries claim high pressure nozzles can be changed over, depending on the job being undertaken, in a matter of seconds. According to the company, the Mini Reel is a revolution in drain cleaning technique, saving plumbers hours on the job and cutting drain cleaning costs dramatically.
