      why would he show a 1 x 3/4 x 1/2'' tee and only demo the 1'' fitting cleaning?

      i don't think it will clean a 1/2'' fitting or 3/4'' fitting

      also it only cleans pipe for pre fabb. not pipe in place.

        Doesn't appear to save much time overall either.

        I believe I can clean a fitting or pipe just as fast with sandcloth
        or a fitting brush and not have to drag a drill around with me or
        have to worry about charging batteries, etc.

          i gut off the handle of a 3/4 wire brush and put it in my cordless drill and clean all sizes of fittings 3/4 and up .i can do a lot of fittings with one brush and the batteries last all day .
          i just did a job where i had about 75 1 1/4 and 2 fittings ,it helps a lot

          i do like the way it cleans the pipe but i will still use my open mesh sand paper in my hand

              It seems like a lot of work to use it..
              I do cut off a brush for my drill if i have a lot of fittings to clean

                It looks cool but those cheap brushes bernz-o-matic makes work pretty good too, even when the pipe is in place. I like the fact that it can take re-usable sandcloth though and do inside/outside diameters. Pretty cool.

                  Your fittings and pipe shouldn't be that dirty anyway.

                  I'm sure I can clean faster by hand. And I can carry the sandcloth in my pocket.

                  How does it clean up the rest of the pipe? Or does he just put it in dirty and leave it that way?

                  I did cut the end off about a 1-1/4" brush and stuck it in a cordless to clean bad Sloan valves . . . You can wrap some green pad around it and polish real nice.

                    While I agree with all the previous comments, I gotta admit it's nice to see people coming up with new ideas and putting them out there for manufacture. Though this invention may not be the end-all in pipe cleaning, it is clever and will probably spark someone else's imagination. Keep 'em coming, America!
