    bought this as we already have a karcher pressure washer but needed a longer drain cleaner as our drain cleaner was too short. Would recommend.
  • Fabulous product - paid for itself many times over.

    Due to a slightly bad drain design, and an over-exuberant child. the drain from the downstairs bathroom at the front of our property, feeding to the main to the rear, often gets blocked and "backs-up". First time I called out a mate to help me unblock it, and it took a few hours (wasting the first 45 minutes because I told him the drain flowed a different direction.) using traditional rods, screws and plungers. A horrible, messy job! This occurs 2-3 times per year - at least now I spot the signs quite early... Rather than depend on a mate or call-out to a "drain specialist" I went looking for some drain rods, and made a punt on purchasing the 15m model of kit... I was very skeptical, but it is amazing! Now it takes about 30 minutes to carefully feed it from the rear mains up the blocked one - and a few cycles of letting it "bump" into the blockage, and pulling it back a foot or so -- repeatedly... Clears the blockage really quickly and efficiently! What's more - I only have to lift one drain cover (at the rear) to clear the job -rather than the ones at the front too... I also repeat the job up each direction of the main drain and feeds to it (including neighbors) for good measure - and it has a massive reach. The most difficult part about using it is cleaning it afterwards - I roll it up, and dump it in a bucket with water & detergent or bleach for about 15 minutes, then into a bucket of clean water, before packing away. Goggles and gloves a must - perhaps also protective clothing, but as they say in the video - avoid using the pressure for the first / last few feet to avoid any nasty splash-back! So, this small purchase has probably saved £100s in call out fees... :-)
  • Perfect for soft blockages in small pipework

    Good quality product, although a bit expensive for what you get. Perfect for clearing soft blockages in small bore pipework, but isn't man enough for clearing root blockages and large items such as bricks. Small diameter allows cleaning round bends down to around 100mm radius, but allows head to penetrate narrow spaces and get stuck. Mine is now stuck in a major root blockage, so I have no option but to dig it out! However, this isn't a complaint, I didn't really expect a miracle, I was just hoping for one. Even the professionals would have had trouble with my blockage.

      Hi Desmond, Karcher part number 4.762-062 is available on our website here: http://www.espares.co.uk/part/pressure-washers/karcher/p/1315/877/0/0/955221/pressure-washer-adaptor-b.html

      I have been using this adaptor for my Karcher machine and this drain clearing accessory for clearing drains. It is amazing to watch it fly UP a drain pipe! The part Karcher No.4.762-062 is readily available in Europe and the US but, not apparently in the UK.

      I bought one of these kits many years ago and, as my Karcher machine was an older one with screw fitting I bought an adaptor at the same time. I shall add a photograph later on for information.

      Hi Morr, unfortunately HD series washers are commercial units and therefore to powerful for domestic accessories such as the drain cleaning kit.

  • Q Clearing guttering 2 Answers

    Might the Drain Cleaning Kit (pipe) be fed horozontally along my guttering to blow out acculumateed moss and blockages?? (Or would it blow itself out of the guttering because of the high pressure??).

    By Decklo - Maidenhead - 18 February 2010

    • A
      I would not use this for cleaning out the guttering as it would blow itself out of it due to the high pressure. This is intended for drain cleaning only

      Hi, the kit wouldn't be suitable for use in a horizontal half-pipe - it would start snaking and not move forwards. It can be used in horizontal pipes that are 360 degrees.

  • Q What if the blockage is further than 15m? 2 Answers

    We have a communal drain which is blocked but the blocakage is futher than 15m from the manhole, could be upto 50m but uncertain. Does the 15m cable have to reach the blockage to unclear it.

    By Singh - Cardiff, Wales - 05 July 2009

    • A
      The answer given already is correct in that the hose does have to reach the blockage but the following may be of interest. My drain problem area is just about 15m from the access. The jetter has worked brilliantly but there is a risk that in future the blockage could be a bit further back and unreachable. I went to a local high pressure hose specialist and got him to cut my hose about 18 inches from the pressure washer end and insert a high pressure connector in it. Then I got him to make me up a 5 metre length of hose with a connector at each end so that if I need to, I can extend it to 20 metres. The extra weight of the extension and connectors will put a limit on how long you can make it, because at some point the drag of the weight will stop the hose going up the drain. 50 metres overall sounds as though it would be a bit much to me and in any case the cost would be quite significant. It cost me £20 and was done while I waited.

      Hi Singh, the drain cleaning kit can only remove blockages it that the end of it coems in to physical contact with. The kit is jet powered, with backward streaming jets of water propelling the nub forward at a high pace, removing any debris in the pipe.

      I had an older model and it fitted perfectly into the gun. I just removed the lance fitting and in it went.

      Hi Stodge09, I'll need your model's seven digit product number to make sure this kit is suitable for your washer. For help finding it, use this page: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/pressure-washers/a/8/1172/how-to-find-a-karcher-pressure-washer-model-n.html

  • Q does it cope with bends? 2 Answers

    I have a blocked shower drain, the pipe is only 22mm. It runs for about 1.5m under the shower tray, then bends downwards through almost 90 degrees into the main drain. If this kit can cope with this bend I'll order it right now from espares. thanks!

    By hopmah - Buckinghamshire, UK - 03 February 2009

      Hi Hopmah, although the pipe would fit in to the drain, I think it would probably just come to a halt at the 90 degree bend. If the bend was closer to the entry point you could have manually entered the pipe and it would've fit round due to the natural curvature of the pipe, however I think because it has to travel 1.5m, it'll just crash in to the wall of the pipe.

      By Rory eSpares Staff - 22 February 2010

      The hose is heavy duty pressure hose and has a metal part on the end with the holes for the jets to come out. I do not personally think it will bend 90 degrees in only 22mm pipe. The hose itself is a good 10-15mm with the end piece.
