RIDGID 238-P Powered
Soil Pipe Cutter
The 238-P is the newest addition to RIDGID's soil-pipe cutting product line. Its light weight — 13-1/2 pounds — and size — 11-1/2 inches long — makes it easier for plumbers and mechanical contractors to quickly cut in those hard-to-reach spaces. It is designed for use with a half-inch impact driver and incorporates a chain that can cut no-hub and service-weight cast iron and clay pipe up to 8 inches in diameter and concrete pipe up to 6 inches in diameter. Its two-directional operation allows users to score pipe before cutting, making for a cleaner cut, and the tool’s torque limit (patent pending) protects it from overloading.

New ClogChopper™ Cutters
Revolutionize Drain Cleaning
The multi-function cutting tools from General Pipe Cleaners feature six self-sharpening blades that dig into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale, and crystallized urine without risking pipe damage. The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic, and clay pipes. The cutters are available in 1-, 1-1/2-, 2-, 2-1/2-, 3-, and 4-inch sizes, and they are excellent for clearing stacks, downspouts, and mains, as well as for drain-lining jobs.

Aquatherm PEX Transition
Aquatherm recently introduced a new polypropylene-random (PP-R) to PEX transition. The transitions, which come in 1/2-inch, 3/4-inch, and 1-inch sizes, are made from PP-R and brass. The fittings are heat-fused to Aquatherm pipe on one side of the connection and crimped to PEX pipe on the other side. The transitions were designed similarly to fittings Aquatherm has used in Europe with its raised temperature polyethylene (PE-RT) line for years, while the brass portion of the transition has been reenergized to meet ASTM F1807 and connect seamlessly to standard Imperial PEX sizes.

Goodway CoilPro CC-400HF —
HiFlow Coil Cleaner
Thick evaporator and condenser coils have always been a challenge to clean. Either there's too much pressure that damages coils and fins or too little water volume that can't get through the thick coils. The new CoilPro CC-400HF is the answer to those situations. It combines the best of both worlds. 400 psi cleaning power with patented tip technology is safe on coil fins, while the 3 gpm+ flow rate powers through even the thickest, dirtiest coils.
