The jet nozzle is pressed on to the hose so you would not be able to connect two drain cleaning hoses together.

Probably not. It is not a roto rooter, but has the head drilled to allow water jets to 'wash' the pipe.

This pressure washer drain cleaning hose would not be recommended for use with your home drains. A pressure washer would put out too much pressure for this application. You would want to look at drain cleaning eels for the home drain lines. See below.

I would only use it from the outside clean out to the sewage line or septic tank. I wouldn't take the chance of breaking any pipes inside your home.

The NorthStar drain cleaning hose is flexible so that it will be able to work in a 4" drain tile at a 90 degree angle.

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.

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...

I have used this on a 2" PVC pipe system and it makes the turns through Elbows and with some joggling it will go through a Tee. I don't know how to tell which way it comes out of the Tee though. After a some length of hose pushes on you may be able to tell by the way the water is flowing.

The outside diameter is 22 MM on the hose/end fitting. It requires a minimum pipe size of 1". It would not fit inside a 1/2" hose/pipe.

It might fit into a 1/2 pipe, but it will not make a turn through a fitting like a Tee or Elbow.
I have used it on 2" pipe and it makes the turn at a Tee and Elbow with a little joggling.

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.
