  • Drain cleaning truck

    If you were going to set up a truck to just do drain cleaning, what would you put on it?

    i was thinking

    Closet Auger

    K39 Auto feed

    K 400

    k750

    K 60 ( cant forget that or yall will never let me live it down :-p)

    also water closet stuff like wax rings and bolts so u can pull and rest, maybe fernco and some pipe fittings,

    So are you a 'plumber in training' or drain cleaner?

        That would make a good start.

          Commercial grade water hoses.
          Is a cart jetter an option?
          Tarps & runners. Shop Vac. Bucket, mop, cleaner to make the area look good when finished.
          Everything you can think of that will break-P-traps, closet flanges, bolts, tank to bowl bolts & gaskets etc.

            if u want to keep ur boss happy along with customers, get drum machines---no mess left and no cleanup--get a k6200, or k7500 --

            if u like mess, go with sectional-----

            if you like clean and easywork, get drum

            sectional is lots of work and lots of mess and p.i.a

                      General 6' toilet auger, k39af, k60, k50, and a big drum machine, either a 7500 or spartan. 13' little giant ladder, 24' extention ladder, wax rings w/ bolts, plenty of cleanout plugs and everything else JC said.

                        Re: Drain cleaning truck

                        Good thread. I currently have a K-39 for small stuff, K-380(400) for medium stuff. K-60 for large stuff. I may eventually get a K-7500 or other drum machine to round out my arsenal. Also I can hardly wait to outfit my truck with a Seesnake and Scout Locator. As you can see, I think Ridgid's drain-cleaning equipment is the best out there, bar none. The only thing I use that is not Ridgid is a General toilet auger.

                          A lot of little tools that you can only come up with by doing the job. Like a 3-5 ft pipe for breaking clean outs open, a torch for that as well. More garden hose than you brought with you (lol) lONG Grabbing tool for fishing things out that you loose down the pipe, hose clamps of different sizes, a large selection of plastic and metal style nuts and washers and hose washers for those garden hoses. Gloves gloves gloves!
