In the plumbing and septic services industry, clogged drainlines can lead to significant disruptions and potential damage. That's why high-quality, reliable cable drain cleaning machines are so important. These machines can efficiently clear obstructions, from tree roots to everyday buildups, restoring the flow and function of the drain. Check out a couple distinguished drain cleaners below.

Duracable DM30
The DM30 cable drain cleaning machine from Duracable can be used to clean residential main lines running from the house to the septic tank or from the tank to the distribution box. Suited to 2-to-6-inch lines in residential and light commercial settings, the durable machine provides flexibility with cable diameter and length. Machine packages come with 100 feet of DuraFlex 5/8-inch hollow-core cable, and it is easy to swap between 19- and 21-inch reels. It is a mid-range sled-style drain machine, powered by a 1/2 hp 200 rpm motor and onboard power cable feed and return. Getting it on site is no problem with its telescoping handle and wide wheels, which give it extra ground clearance and mobility to fit through a narrow 26-inch doorway. 800-247-4081;

General Pipe Cleaners Flexi-Rooter 100 
The Flexi-Rooter 100 high-speed, flexible-shaft drain cleaner from General Pipe Cleaners has a shaft that spins more than 10 times faster than cable drum machines to quickly grind up stoppages and scour pipe walls. Its strong, stiff shaft is flexible enough to navigate 2-inch pipes, yet cuts roots in 4-inch drainlines up to 75 feet long. The variable-speed motor has adjustable shaft speed from 0 to 2,200 rpm. Foot pedal control frees hands to guide the flexible shaft into the line. It can be used simultaneously with a sewer camera system to pinpoint pipe troubles and instantly inspect results. Its cleaning array features ClogChopper cutters combined with carbide chain cutters. The shaft is field-repairable. 800-245-6200;
