We are all very excited to announce another fantastic piece of equipment recently added to our company. The Quadraplex SS2000+ Drain cleaning machine is an incredible piece of equipment for many reasons, and will help Harts make your life much easier and faster.
We all know how frustrating it can be to have a stoppage in your home. Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom or even the laundry room a small stoppage can be a big deal. The SS2000+ is not your ordinary store bought cable machine as it goes above and beyond the normal expectations of a drain “snake.” It can be used easily and quickly to take care of blockages wherever they may be, and certainly with the holidays coming up it’s important to make sure you have someone on your team with the means to take care of any current of possible future issues you may have.
The SS2000+ will clean lines up to 6 inches through 100 feet and 4-inch lines up to 200 feet! Its comes fully equipped with a ½ HP ball bearing, thermal protection, and a reversible motor. It is the only machine that can “snap” from a main line application to a sink line without any belt or guard change. That may not sound impressive to the layman, but it is. It’s convenience and speed makes it much easier for us to be “in and out” with your stoppage issues taken care of. The machine clocks in at about two square feet and can weigh up to 80lbs fully loaded. The motor is a 60 cycle, single phase, capacitor start, and is reversible with overload protection. Some of its features include but are not limited to: heavy-duty chromed steel frame, 8 inches solid core rubber wheels with ball bearing inserts, air actuated foot control and open cage/inner core cartridges for ease of cleaning and prevention of kinking and looping.
Whether it’s a stoppage happening in a toilet, sink, or main line, the solution is as simple as having one of our technicians come to your house and spend a few minutes assessing the issue before using the SS2000+, and letting it work it’s magic. This is a quick and easy process that can get your home or business back up and running in no time. Though snaking through a drain with a clog is a quick and generally reliable method for temporary clogs, sometimes your pipe may be backed up for other reasons that need further attention. Some home/business owners may think they just have a stoppage, when it could be something as serious a pipe breakage or collapse causing the issue. It’s very important to care for your home or businesses drain lines, and sewer line. Whether you are on city sewer or septic, problems such as roots and other debris may arise that need something more powerful to clear out blockages. That would require something like a hydro-jetter. It’s never too early to check out what’s happening in your lines with a camera inspection, and we would be happy to schedule for you.
If you have a blockage, there are a few things you can try at home before you call us. In sink drains, hair is the most common thing that creates stoppages. Any household metal hanger can be “untwisted” and used to try and clear the clog. A classic plunger is usually best for toilet stoppages, or smaller snakes can be rented or bought from local hardware stores. These are not generally as effective as the industrial sized one we have. Lastly, as a tip for kitchen sinks with disposals, make sure you’re not putting any pumpkin “guts” down there. This is a very common mistake people make around this time of the year, with the disposal being so clean and quick. The slimy goo that comes out of a pumpkin is actually very difficult for a disposal to process,and can cause rather serious buildups in the drain line below. If you have any issues with stoppages in drains within your home or business, please don’t hesitate to call us!
