    I believe SewerRatz is the only one that has praised this tool. I have seen people say it is very expensive and good on scale and thinned out concrete "slurry". I have also read it is aided best with a high rpm machine.

      The chain knocker is sized for the size of pipe you are cleaning. It is more of a finishing / descaling tool.

      I have 4" chain knockers and have had some PVC lines that where all mucked up with grease and such. Ran the chain knocker through with plenty of water, retelavised the line and it looked like new again.

      Also had a village tell a home owner that his 120' cast iron sewer had to be replaced, that the scale was to much and causing his blockages. I told them let me run the chain knocker through, and if they are not happy with the results all the have to pay me is my service call. When the line was done, the ran the camera though again and where amazed, and paid me my full rates. This village now recommends me to all the property owners that have scale build up.

      The chain knockers I use are an older design though.

        ron, once you knock off all the heavy scale, how do you wash the line clear?

            While running the knocker I run water, seems to work well since the drains are designed to carry waste away.

              That older design looks pretty efficient and possibly an easy DIY. Thanks for sharing the pic

                I have used the 4" chain knocker in a situation similar to Ron's story with good results.

                I would be careful on 2" CI. I have seen a lot of old 80-100 y/o 2" CI lines where the scale is the only thing keeping the pipe together. I don't think I'd use it on galvy.
