answer 2
I would sure think so. It is a small hose unless your obstruction is such that you can not get thru it I do believe you would have plenty of room to make the 90 degree bend.

answer 3
Likely no problem. The hose is 3/8" OD and quite flexible, though stiff enough to push it along a pipe as well without folding it over on itself. I got into a Y cleanout, 90 degree 2 feet in, two unions, a joining Y, and through a tee 35 feet away. The pressure does need to be on though to help feed itself in...

The cleaning hose is rated at 3000 PS I. I actually have a 4000 PSI / 4GPM pressure washer. (I understand this manufacturer does not offer a higher PS I rated hose). I simply reduce the pressure to accommodate the limits of the cleaning hose. Be very careful not to exceed these limits ! ( I SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE ) used properly the drain cleaning hose is a wonderful device ! I am not sure of the minimum PSI or volume required. According to my pressure gauge I am operating mine at approximately 2500 PSI. I hope this helps !

it seemed to take less water then most spray tips, the spray holes are super fine so it does not use much water. I have a larger power washer and it kept wanting to idle back down because it was not using that much water.

Question

Does the cleaning hose have a on/off valve?

Typically when a pressure washer is started the pump's internal relief valve bypass the flow. When the nozzled trigger is pressed the water then comes out of the spray nozzle. Is this drain cleaning hose have a valve or does the flow come out of the cleaning nozzle as soon as the pressure washer is started.

answer 2
22 MM on the hose. But what you can do is either put together a ball valve with fittings between your hose from your pressure washer and the end of the Drain Cleaning hose. What I did was I bought a new gun from Norther Tool Part Number 31915 and the end of the gun screws on to the Drain Cleaning Hose and than I had to take the quick connect off of the Drain Cleaning Hose and install a 3/8" male fitting to to the gun to connect to my hose from my pressure washer. So you need a 3/8" male fitting and a gun. The gun from Northern Tool was $30.09 and can be used for washing your cars and houses. Or you could spend money on a ball cock and fittings that would no doubt cost you over $20.00 and would not be able to be used for any thing else but would be more conveniant than the gun but the gun has other uses so for me that was a better deal even thou it cost a little more.

This NorthStar Drain Cleaning Hose does not have a minimal pipe recommendation. As long as the pipe is at least 1" it will work. Keep in mind the water has to go someplace and as long a the pipe is clogged is it going to come back along the hose.
