Frederico Milani showed off the portable Aussie Viper Mini Reel that gives him control while cleaning drains remotely.
Remote control jetting
IN drought conditions, trees seek moisture from drains and sewer lines.
The roots cause blockag- es in sometimes difficult- to-access locations.
The new Aussie Viper mini reel is a lightweight, portable reel with control lever and 60m of sewer- cleaning hose.
It is designed for use with any high-pressure water blaster or sewer-cleaning jetter up to 5000psi.
Aussie Pumps product manager Mal Patel said, “Most piggeries have a decent pressure cleaner for general cleaning.”
This portable reel ena- bles that blaster to be used to unblock drains effec- tively too.”
The Viper consists of a 5000psi-rated hose reel with stainless steel swivel mounted in a robust stain- less steel carry frame to make it portable.
An integrated control le- ver and on-board pressure gauge means the operator has remote control of the jetter or pressure cleaner.
The reel carries 60m of
3/16” 5000psi-rated high- pressure flexible sewer- cleaning hose.
It can be equipped with a wide range of drain- cleaning nozzles includ- ing the Aussie Turbo Root Mulcher.
The Mulcher is designed to chop its way through tree roots in record times.
“Drain cleaning has un- dergone a revolution, with plumbers opting for Aus- sie Pumps high-pressure jetters because of their ef- ficiently and ease of use,” Patel said.
“The Aussie Viper mini reel makes it convenient for a pressure cleaner to be used in the same way,” he said.
The Mini Reel also has connectors to hold up to three drain-cleaning noz- zles so the operator can select the right nozzle for the job.
Further information is available from aussie or through authorised plumbing sup- ply shops throughout Australia and the South Pacific.

Pet pigs part of the plan
EVERY pig in NSW must now be identi- fied as part of the National Livestock Identification Sys- tem.
In a bid to boost bio- security outcomes for NSW, new legislation now ensures every pig movement is recorded as part of the NLIS.
NSW Department of Primary Industries traceability leader Lisa Burrows said all pigs weighing less than 25kg must now be identified with an NLIS eartag to help improve traceability.
“From February 1 this year, movements of all pigs in NSW, from pets to commer- cial animals, must be recorded in PigPass, which automatically transfers records to the NLIS database,” Ms Burrows said.
“All pig movements, to or from farms, backyards, saleyards, showgrounds and ab- attoirs, will now be recorded using a Pig- Pass National Vendor Declaration.
“Traceability is a key part of a strong bio- security system and exporting PigPass data to the NLIS database delivers an effective system that can quick-
ly trace pigs if a food safety issue or exotic disease outbreak were to occur.”
“In the past, small pigs weighing less than 25kg were ex- empt, now new leg- islation brings pigs into line with NLIS requirements for cat- tle, sheep and goats.
“Pigs weighing more than 25kg must still be identified, preferably with a swine tattoo or brand, or an NLIS ear- tag may be used in place of brands.”
All pig owners in NSW must also have a Property Identifica- tion Code, which is used when trading or moving pigs.
Your PIC is a unique eight-character num- ber assigned by NSW Local Land Services to properties with live- stock.
Pig owners can get information about PICs, tattoos and NLIS tags for pigs from their Local Land Services office or by calling 1300 795 299.
Information, includ- ing registration details, about PigPass is avail- able on pigpass.austral and from the PigPass Help- desk, free call 1800 001 458.
