Black Rod is standard, the white rod is lead "indicator" rod to know when the whip is nearly to you. If you order 6 rods, 1 will be white. If you get 10, 2 will be white. Rod diameter is just under 1/2".
These highly flexible and hard wearing solid section rods are ideally suited for flues and ducting within a range of sizes from 125mm (5 inch) to 200mm (8 inch), such as lined appliances, usually stainless steel flexi liners. These rods can also be used in ducting shafts.
Designed for use with the 12" (300mm) Super Scrub or 12" (300mm) Euro Whip the 1/2"- (12mm) should be your go to chimney rod when cleaning lined appliances.
The rods are designed to be used with a cordless drill and purpose built drill driver, this rotates the rod and selected head using Centrifugal force. Simply fit the head to the leader rod and use the drill to drive it into the flue, add another rod and repeat until at the top. Once there reverse the rotation on the drill and go back down rod by rod. The co-polymer strands remove the deposits as the user controls the speed and direction with the drill. For ease of use we provide two colours of rod currently black and white this allows you to have a leader or marker rod, this way you don’t have to worry about keeping count when sweeping. Due to the click lock system you may rotate our rods clockwise or counter-clockwise depending on your preference, this is something you cannot do with a traditional chimney rod as it would unscrew within the flue. The head is designed to fit centrally inside the flue/liner comfortably gliding around bends, allowing the co-polymer strands to do the work and remove the deposits with ease, this avoids any unwanted surface tension that could cause unseen damage to the flue. Our power rotary heads can also clean a spark screen while sweeping from the bottom so you no longer have to climb on the roof when cleaning is required.
If you have restricted access it is always recommended that you add the chimney rod guide, this will insure that the rods are protected from any sharp or protruding obstacles, which could damage the rods before or upon entry into the flue/liner.
