      Sludge whip is a big spring that kinda looks like a dumbell for doing grease but I have used it to clear muck before if all hard stoppages are cleared. I took off the warthog because this line scared me with all the problems and I didn't want to take a chance on losing it! It cost too much to lose. Also the flusher has bigger holes in it to really get the flow going and I figured I needed as many gallons per minute going as fast as possible to clear it so I chose the flusher. I do wonder how the warthog would have done but I was too chicken to use it. Video showed a nice clean line with some seperations near the end where roots got in and some bellies here and there, still a good usable line with maintance time will tell on how fast the roots grow back. I can say right now it is a very clean line lol.

        What kinda jetter do you have? How would you lose the warthog? Get stuck? Where do you get a sludge whip at?
        Buy cheap, buy twice.

          My Big jetter is a 24hp honda,300 gallon water tank, with a 10 gpm pump. All mounted in my warwagon (enclosed trailer)
          I don't know how I would actually lose the warthog but the job was becoming a nightmare and I figured it be my luck to get it stuck, not get it out and have to cut the jetter hose and push it into the sewer. Never has happened but I have heard stories from others. I am a jetter newbie with the warthog and until I make it pay for itself 4 x over I am treating it like gold. I snake first if it is a job I have never been to and don't know the line, I even do a quick camera first to look for offsets, then I use the warthog. Heck I have even ran it to get roots that I saw with the camera then pulled it back and videoed again before running it out further.
          As for the sludge whip I bought it at a rental store about 15 years ago because I had never seen one but I have only used it about 5 times.
