@gear junkie. For starters, I want to say that I understand that everybody's needs are different. For me, after my experience of a few months of using the Zip Zip flexible shaft cable laid out on the floor on drop cloths, it wasn't complicated to see that this was a superior way to clean drains/sewers. I'm now cleaning out drains 100%, using my cable in combination with my Ridgid camera. You are so right about flexible shaft cable, it does do everything you say it does.


I ordered the ZIP-ZIP Revolution model because it's the same thing like having the cable but now I have the benefit of a rotating drum. No more cables laid out on the floor and it will give me the professional look that matches the quality of the service that I offer. And it's a no-brainer to me that it will be a cleaner service that I will be providing to my clients. In my opinion, it looks so slick and clean. It almost looks like a Harley Davidson...lol And I can quick connect my 75' cable to the 66' from the machine for greater distances.

At the same time it's the best priced flexible shaft cable machine that I could find on the market. I do think that I could have continued without the machine but I felt the time was right for me to upgrade. But that doesn't stop other guys from just buying a flexible shaft cable length (and clutch) with some chains as I did and doing it this way. I tell all the guys here that can't afford the machine to do just that, as I did when I started. It works fine and the job gets done!

Renssi is my preferred chain knocker and makes alot of great products, but that clutch isn't one of them. I've gone through 3 and not one works as reliably as a cordless drill clutch.

Everything works the first time you use it but the design flaws that's obvious on the zip zip fleet and revolution leads me to believe that the drain rehab solutions guys don't know what they're doing. 2nd reason why I say this, is I met them at the show and based off their questions, they had little to no experience. 3rd reason why I say this is because they sell "pipe patch" kits....no they don't. They sell the raw components. Definitely not Source One Environmental pipe patch kits....so they're outright lying to plumbers who thought they were buying authentic S1E products. 4th reason is because they've even tried to get people to message me just to figure out the construction of the clog dog....if they want to see one....at least have the decency of buying one to copy. I mean heck...you're in Montreal....they're in Montreal....small world. You work at Drain Dancar?

If it works for you great but I'm going to pass. I work too hard for my money to buy products that don't last from people that don't know what they're doing. But you know what....maybe I'm all wrong.....who knows right. I'll get a better look at the WWETT show.

@gear junkie. As for your post, I'm sorry to hear. If you say so. Yes I'm in Montreal. I do like to try new different products, that's why I bought the flexible shaft cable. Up here in Montreal there is a Trenchless Technology equipment dealer called ASC Trenchless Technologies (they are a dealer for the UK Trenchless Technology leader RSM). They have been advertising Pipe Patch Repair kits to us. If RSM UK is infringing on Source One by referring to their product as the same name, maybe someone should tell them. But I do buy from many places and love to try new things as most of us do. I'll try anything once if it there is logic to it. And when I find something I like I can't help talking about it for a while. But it's ok... I won't bring up any company or product here if it seems to be different from the general trend. I guess I'll start discussing equipment with my wife from now on...lol. Take care.

ASC calls it "Nodig Patch", RSM calls it a "sectional repair"....says it right on their websites. I know the guys at RSM UK and they're a great bunch of guys.

So really Drain Rehab Solutions is the one infringing on Source One.

Excellent attempt at trying to deflect attention away from the shoddy business practices of Drain Rehab Solutions

You did this post back in july 2018.....Aug 2018 you said this

"Hi gear junkie,
I've been watching your Youtube videos over the last few months and they are really informative. Thanks for all the information you share. I went to read up on Clog Dog's website and saw a link to a tool manufacturer (Renssi) ans as I was browsing their site I came across a company named Drain Rehab Solutions that on there website it says they sell flexible shaft cables. What are your thoughts on this quality? I am considering buying some since they are local for me. Any feedback would be appreciated thanks"

Why would you ask me about Drain Rehab Solutions when you had one at least one month earlier? Because from my standpoint it sounds like you work for them and came here trying to sound a regular plumber....scandalous as all hell.

I'm getting the same impression that this thread has derailed more towards a sales ad in disguise.

Seriously it doesn't add up.
