    Question for market techs.

    A friend of mine just told me about this.

    Has anybody here ever use one? I would like to pull the trigger on one, but, wanted to here some input first.

    It looks cool...and no dragging in the nitrogen.

    I use a gallo gun.

    Hard to find a page that isn't a direct purchase link to post, but if you google it, you'll see it and like it.

    Does a heck of a job

    Holly smokes man! They want $253 for that thing? For that much it better clean the case out too.

    I started using my 18v Milwaukee wet/dry vac. Blow or suck that drain opens up quick.

    Bulky I use air compressor with the line flush tip or nitro tank with line set flush tip but the gallo gun is great small cheap but the refills I find to be a lil pricey. My old boss used to blow on em put his mouth on anything

    Sold!

    I figure I'll give it a try, and if it works out, I'll save some coin.

    My company will buy the cartridges, and it seems a lot less cumbersome.

    It fits in a Veto bag pocket and, if needed, fits in your pocket when you're climbing a ladder to clear a drain.

    DO NOT try to use BB gun type cylinders. It will ruin the tool

    I usualy use an old school toilet plunger to clear out the drain in glass cases open case. If that does not work nitrogen or co2. But i would not pay 250 bucks for that lol.

    I would think these would work well if the blockage is in a trap or condensate line with no vent and no other evap coils attached to it, but...in a regular DWV plumbing sytem wouldn't most of the pressure used to "force the clog free" just get sent up a vent? And if it was used on a condensate line, what if there's another pipe connected to the line upstream of the blockage? All your pressure would just release out of that coolers' condensate drain.

    I use a wet/dry vac. You can get one of those bucket head vacs at HD for 20 bucks, that is plenty strong for drains.
