The M12 lithium-ion-battery powered electric drain snake enables users to clean drain lines up to 25 feet long without using cables.

The rM200 camera system is a compact, portable inspection camera system with interchangeable camera drums for job site compatibility. The rM200 comes with a choice of the D2A or the new D2B drum. Either drum can be purchased separately. The drums feature different push-cable lengths, diameters, stiffness, and springs, creating an inspection-system platform users can set up to meet specific job requirements.
The FB-DIR duct inspection crawler system allows users to inspect air ducts with the motorized, dual-caterpillar-driven crawler. It comes with a crawler and a handheld 7-inch LCD high-resolution color monitor in an aluminium case with built-in 500 gigabyte hard drive.
The crawler can cross obstacles wider than 45 millimeters, climb surfaces steeper than 40 degrees, and rotate 360 degrees.
The RS-360 can detect unseen plumbing leaks in near-freezing temperatures and automatically takes action to minimize potential property damage. Standard valve sizes are available from ¾ inch to 2 inches to fit any application. The unit requires no electrical wiring.
