The PowerClear Drain Cleaning Machine by Ridgid is a Great Machine. We were testing this machine in a residential setting. This is a “sink machine” and is good for up to 1-1/2” drains. We are happy to report that it performed very well. It it runs pretty smoothly. Since you do not have to switch the motor back and forth, you just depress the forward and backward auto feed leaver on the guide hose.
We have used the old hand crank style drain augers and this is so different. The PowerClear Machine takes a little time to learn how to use the foot pedal and feed the auger into the pipe. After that short learning curve you are in business.
There is a guide hose that will hep keep the cable from twisting and if you are using it around a bath or cabinet it should protect what is around you.
For the price, you cannot go wrong. It really appears to make tight turns so it is great for 1-1/4” lines. Go easy when approaching the blockage. No need to force, just go easy so that the cable continues to spin. Great for tubs, showers and sink blockages.

Do you clean your air conditioning coils ? Sometimes your evaporator coil needs to become cleaned because they will get clogged and that will wreck the efficiency of the operations. Do not fret. You only need to do a couple of steps and this chore can be easily accomplished.
When your air conditioning unit is working, a bunch of different components are working together. The evaporator coil is at the top of the air exchanger and this is where ht main flow fro the exchanger directly travels through.
What dirt is not collected from the air filter usually ends up on the fins of the evaporator. Check your unit out. You should see an access panel that can be removed. You should see the evaporator coil. Always take a look at your machine’s handbook.
Always turn the power off to the unit by heading to your circuit breaker. Hopefully your breakers are labeled, else turn all your power off !
Remover the screws and put them in a safe place. There is nothing so frustrating as losing screws after finishing a job. You should now see the coils. Do you have access to an air compressor ? You can use one to blow the dirt off the coils. Use an air nozzle to blow a steady stream of air across the fins of he evaporator. Be careful that you do not damage the fins! Blow down, and then blow up.
If you do not have a compressor — you can still spray the coils with a solution that soaks them for a while. Make it with warm water and some dish detergent. Let is soak in. You may have to do it a couple of times but that is ok. Take an old soft cloth and brush away the debris. Keep spraying and keep wiping. Again, your goal is to make your mechanical efficient.
Sheridan Supply always suggests that you consider hiring a HVAC service professional. They are worth their weight in gold. They can change the filter, look at dirt in the condensate drain, check your line set covers and more.
Cover Guard has really created a new and improved adjustable line set cover.
When you are up the ladder the last thing you want is to have a hard time installing a device. Old line covers were hard to close up with multiple lines or pumps inside. Cover guard line set covers are not only stronger, but they hold more than any other system in the market today.
We hope that you will take a look at the video below. It really demonstrates the benefits to the system. We also love the peel off film which really helps make the homeowner very happy.
We hear that some installations now use graphic shrink wrap ( like on automobiles) to blend the line sets into brick walls or match the siding of historic homes !!!
The surface is paintable. Do follow paint manufacturer’s instructions.
There is the wall duct kit which includes 14 pieces and 14 specialty screws. Additional lenths of duct, couplers, wall inlets, elbows, tees, end caps, wall flanges, sweeps adapters are available.
It is a great product.
Condensate Pipe Device by ALL-ACCESS attaches to the air conditioning condensate line. It allows easy access to clear and maintain the drain line. It automatically blocks the flow in the opposite direction of the cleanout. Then you can vacuum out the line or blow out the line using any method. You can add a drain line cleaner. It installs horizontally or vertically on 3/4″ and 1″ PVC.
Once installed you will never have to cut the pipe again. So it will save you money and your customers some heart ache.
As about all the models: AA1, AA1-INS, AA1-FS, AA2-FS, AA3, AA-TOOLS.

Spiral pipe is now available at Sheridan Supply. Spiral pipe has become very popular. You can see it in expensive restaurants and in retail locations. It gives buildings old and new a very unique look. Here are some of the reasons why it is so popular.
Spiral pipe does not have sharp edges, so there is less noise than when rectangular duct is used. There is no reverberation because there is no pressure differential like in rectangular duct.
Spiral pipe can be cleaned and it is effective and economical. It even takes up much less space than rectangular duct.
Spiral pipe is pretty much eliminated and studies have shown that air tight systems can lead to good annual energy savings.
The spiral design provides equal pressure internally and allows the air to flow evenly and efficiently, also leading to lower energy use. The pressure drop of air leaving an air-handler is usually lower in a typical spiral system.
Air tight ducts are better for indoor air quality because they are more economical. They are less prone to leakage. There are less joints. Quality spiral pipe systems have less energy loss so systems are more efficient.
Spiral pipe make it easier for a technician to do periodic testing of air flow. Monitoring devices are now specifically made for spiral duct. Air Technicians appear to be able to obtain better air movement readings with pipe that does not have sharp corners.
In many cases, spiral pipe is more affordable than rectangular duct. This includes the product, the shipping, packaging, waste, parts, and labor. Check out our lengths of American made spiral pipe sheetmetal at Sheridan Supply. Call us with your job needs. 888-458-8743
