History of Sewer Machines in the Plumbing Industry
It shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that sewer drum machines are very heavy. This essential piece of equipment often pushes over 200lbs, requiring two people to get set up and operate. If you're a one-person show: that’s a call to your buddy every time you need help getting it in place. They’re corded, and feature foot-actuated air pumps that are not durable and offer little, if any, control. To make adjustments, they feature an unintuitive twist knob feed that leads to a long reaction time to stop the cable once it hits the blockage. These machines also require high amounts of power, often leading to tripping breakers.
