  • How it works

    During operation, a feeder gun controls shaft rotation, shaft feed, and the water flow. By just pressing the top of the trigger, you will rotate the shaft clockwise, start water flow, and feed the Shaft & Casing into the tube. By pressing the bottom of the trigger, you will reverse the shaft rotation and pull out the Shaft & Casing from the inside of the tube. The distance to be cleaned is set by an adjustable Shaft & Casing length stop unit, and the shaft feed stops when it reaches the set distance.
