Power sweeping is faster and more efficient cleaning process than traditional methods, you will get a cleaner chimney in half the time.

Double Lock rods are faster to assemble and disassemble than screwing rods together, push and lock, press and release.

You will clean rectangular chimneys.

Clean Faster, can take less then half the time and far less effort in cleaning.
Double Lock fittings have two stainless drive keys that drive the rods and stainless buttons that locks the rods together. The keys and keyways of the male & female do the driving giving the locking mechanism a longer life in just securing the rods together and not driving the rotation of the rods.

All our rods with Double Lock connections can connect to each other and the same goes with the brush heads and attachments, no need to buy a brush head for each rod diameter just use a head on a 16mm or 14mm or 12mm rods, or even mix and match your rods to suit 14mm with a 12mm leader.

With power sweeping you don’t need lots of brush heads the heads will clean from 4″ – 12″ 12″ – 25″ 25″ – 50″ creating a saving in its self and less carrying around a number of brushes.

    Very Useful Guide

    Looking at all the power sweeping products on the market this guide helped with answering questions i needed to know , For chimney sweeping for many years now i decided to make the change to power sweeping from my traditional hand sweeping method that has worked well for 15 years. Using the 12mm kit and the 20mm kit for 3 months now without any issues they are paying dividends in how many sweeps i can do in a day and getting a bit longer in the tooth they certainly take the back breaking work out sweeping, i am sure i get more soot out and a cleaner chimney for the customer thumbs up guys and see you again soon .
