    Gies a shout if it works, be handy in the van if it does, I generally use a drain cleaning bomb attachment on the powerwasher if they are blocked below the swan neck, take 2 minutes but can get messy lol

    Will do donny but is not going to be as quick using a bomb for sure:D
    After saying that the time it would take me to setup my portable pressure washer that's buried in the back of me van somewhere that thing would have probably cleared the blockage by then. For less than £16 it's got to be worth a punt;)

    This is the blocked downpipe in question to the right of the bay by my ladder that so should be fun to do.:D

    It's blocked from the top all of the way down to the junction hopper so I can easily get to it from the bottom and work it up the pipe to the top as a test and see if it works or not.

    Tried it on this one today and to be totally honest was as much use as a chocolate fireguard. :D

    Got me rods out in the end to clear the blocked pavement gully as that thing was useless.

    It didn't even go around the bottom bend which was clear when I fed it down from the hopper:rolleyes:

    So in the end I dismantled the downpipe to the pavement gully to check it was all clear also to rod the gull through easier.

    Mind you to be fare that pavement gully had not been cleared out ever:confused:

    Then to finish the job off I cleared the blocked gutter run & blocked swan neck to boot by hand. Also put in a gutter ballon too. Job done. Ching ching :D

    I'm going to have to get a drain jetter hose perferably on a portable hand reel and a high pressure tap for my 3600 psi 15 lpm pressure washer.

    Does anyone know the best place to get one from?

    This is the sort of thing I'm looking for
