Designed for any type of flue of 125mm / 5 diameter or moreKit includes Rods x 8, Drill Adaptor x 1 and Flail Head with 8 Flails x 11.25m nylon rods connect together for overall chimney height 10mFlail Head with 8 Flails removes soot particles and ash from flue wallsDrill Adaptor x 1 for use with power drill (drill not supplied)
It is easier to use the device through a traditional fire opening, but Smart Sweep can also be used through stoves and other heating appliances connected with flue pipes of 125mm, (5 inches) diameter and above.
Insert and secure the Drill Adaptor into the drill chuck.
Connect a Rod to the drill adaptor and the Flail head to the top end of the rod.
Pass the assembly into the chimney or flue to be cleaned and THEN start the drill. The Flail can be rotated in either direction.
As the Flail is passed up the chimney add Rods as needed, reversing the direction from time to time to maximize the flail impact.
Move the rods and flail head up and down as progress is made upwards towards the chimney flue termination.
Note that whilst the nylon rods are very flexible, there is a limit to which they can be effectively distorted. Any change of direction which forces one or more of the rods to be "bent" in excess of 45 degrees will impose a strain on the drill and could even stop the rotation. As the user becomes accustomed to the performance parameters of the kit and the drill with which it is used, any usage and site peculiarities and limitations will become apparent.
NOTE. During use, the flails adopt a determined pattern as the drill applies rotational force to the head. The flails will fly out to a horizontal position as the speed of rotation is increased. They will deform as they encounter both the flue surface and any adhering soot and accumulations. As the Flail Head is passed up into the flue, it may be necessary to reduce the rotational speed as the head meets bends and changes in direction. No two chimney configurations are the same so experience will be gained as the equipment is used.
