General Pipe Cleaners’ JM-1000 Mini-Jet now offers optional stainless steel braid supply and jetter hoses.

General’s JM-1000 Mini-Jet braid hoses
General Pipe Cleaners’ JM-1000 Mini-Jet now offers optional stainless steel braid supply and jetter hoses. The upgraded supply hose sports a durable, 10- by 3/8-inch stainless steel braid design with a compression fitting for attachment directly to angle stops beneath sinks. The abrasion-resistant, stainless steel braid jetter hoses smoothly traverse 1 1/2- to 3-inch drainlines and easily navigate tight bends. Available in 30- and 50-foot lengths, the 3/16-inch Teflon core also reduces water flow resistance, improving small-line cleaning power. 800-245-6200; www.drainbrain.com.

Brass Knuckle SmartCut BKCR303 gloves
Brass Knuckle’s SmartCut BKCR303 gloves succeed on three fronts by providing dexterity, grip and ANSI cut level A2 protection. This is accomplished with a glass fiber and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene shell, a composite yarn that has a strength-to-weight ratio eight to 15 times greater than steel, and polyurethane coating. The thinner, 13-gauge material delivers deftness without trading away its inherent cut-resistance. The nonsticky polyurethane coating on the palm and fingers features excellent grip, even against oils, fats and greases, and can deliver enhanced puncture protection and abrasion resistance, all without adding bulk or reducing touch sensitivity. The glove’s uncoated back and wrist improves ventilation, and a seamless and stretchable full-knit wrist provides a snug fit and prevents dirt, debris and cold from getting inside glove. 770-674-8930; www.brassknuckleprotection.com.

Perma-Liner LightRay LR3 UV repair system
Waterline Renewal Technologies' new LightRay LR3, from Perma-Liner Industries, incorporates the latest in UV trenchless technology, reducing curing time during installations. A modular design and enhanced electrical connections for rapid packer attachment and removal are among the key highlights. Transitions, cast iron and vertical stacks can all be serviced by LightRay LR3 which easily navigates 45- and 90-degree bends. Its non-VOC resin is pre-impregnated into the high-performance fiberglass liner and shipped ready to install for no-dig small-diameter pipe infrastructure repairs. Once the install site is prepped, casting times in under 10 minutes can be achieved eliminating the risk of premature or prolonged curing times due to temperature variations. 866-336-2568; www.perma-liner.com.
