  • What is a good drain cleaning Machine to buy?

    I have a 4in 125 feet of sewer line that I would like to clean out at least once a year. I am looking to buy a drain clean out machine to be used at home. I am not a professional.
    I would like to have a professional advice on a good machine to buy. Can any one in this forum give me some advice on what machine and size cable to buy.

    When it comes to anything that needs to be done aground the house and I have the tools I do it myself. I do my own electric, plumbing, woodworking and auto work. I am a jack of all trades and master of none. If I need a tool to do the job I buy it. I don’t always buy the best but I will buy what will do the job right.

    Sure go get you a K-7500 with 150' of 3/4" cable. I think that will run you around 2800.00. Have a great day

      I would say just call a pro it maybe cheaper?
      125 foot sewer is going to require an expencive machine.
      Talk to a plumbing or drain company many offer discounts after the first cleaning for yearly maintenance

      Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

        It really will take a lot of years of calling a plumber out annually to pay for a sewer machine. If you're dead set on doing it yourself you might consider renting one.
        No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

            unless you find a good used machine, i too would suggest you rent one. sometimes home depot sells off their used rental machines. but i doubt those are auto fed units.

            once a year is still a long payback time.

            normally i would say a k-60, but not in your case
