Steerable, Jet-Powered Drain Inspection Comes to MyTana with DrainSteer
Aug 19, 2019
MyTana, a manufacturer and distributor of equipment for the plumbing and drain cleaning markets, has released DrainSteer. This patent-pending product combines the functionality of a high-pressure jetter and push camera to create the first steerable, jetting drain camera in the industry. DrainSteer provides drain professionals, municipalities and municipal contractors with an affordable tool for inspecting and cleaning in challenging pipe geometries.
DrainSteer cleans while inspecting 2-12” lines, traversing bends and junctions as tight as 90 degrees in 4-inch lines. This steerable design can be used to locate failed pipes, cross-bores and blockages, as well as perform cleaning.
DrainSteer inspects up to 200 feet of pipe, including vertical stacks that would otherwise require dangerous rooftop vent access. DrainSteer streams footage directly to a tablet for instant, wireless viewing and recording.
Through the SewerLink app, which is available for iOS, Android and Windows, operators and their clients can view and record live footage, overlay text, control illumination intensity, toggle the locating sonde on or off, adjust the distance counter and monitor battery power.
“DrainSteer brings a new level of versatility to the plumber market,” says Brent Hill, general manager for MyTana. “Push cameras often struggle in long laterals and stacks. The DrainSteer’s agile maneuvering, powerful thrust and portable form allow it to access more lateral lines and inspect farther. Best of all, it’s affordable enough for even single-operator companies.”
Manufacturing St. Paul, Minnesota-based MyTana is a full-service manufacturer of drain cleaning and inspection equipment, including cable machines, drain jetters and plumber cameras. The company also offers cables, blades, nozzles and other accessories for plumbers and drain cleaners. By selling direct, MyTana is able to maintain competitive pricing while offering a high level of personalized service and support. All MyTana equipment is factory-direct and American made.
