New RIDGID Pipe Patching Kits

We are excited to announce the new RIDGID Pipe Patching kits. Known for their ingenuity, the developers at RIDGID made their own systems for CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) patching. CIPP is a method used worldwide for repairing sections of broken or damaged pipes. This method is known for its quick return on investment, easy learning curve, effectiveness, and reliability, often lasting for decades. RIDGID provides everything needed to get started.

What is CIPP?

process for ridgid pipe patching

CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) patching is a practice of efficiently repairing damaged lines. It’s practical and cost-effective. CIPP is quickly becoming a frontrunner in trenchless pipe rehabilitation. Here is the process, more or less:

  1. Using a camera, inspect the damaged pipe, clear away any blockage and clean the line of debris.
  2. Navigate the Packer with the patch to the patch location, inflate the packer, and let the resin set for its set time.
  3. After the resin has cured, deflate the packer and remove it.

Work time can be as little as fifteen minutes but requires a minimum of 90 minutes for the resin to set. CIPP can be a profitable standalone business or a significant addition to businesses already offering trenchless rehabilitation.

What systems and kits does RIDGID offer?

RIDGID is offering four starter systems and four patch kits. The difference between a starter system and a patch kit is a starter kit has all the tools needed to perform the patch job, including the packer. While the patch kit includes the resin and the packer sleeves, they are sold separately, but each patch kit corresponds to a starter system based on pipe size. Ridgid’s smallest pipe patch system is for a 2-inch pipe with options up to 6 inches.

Starter System

There are four different options for starter kits:

Check Out the Milwaukee M18 Carry-On Power Supply

milwaukee m18 carry-on power supply in actionWe are excited to announce an amazing portable power supply solution. The new Milwaukee M18 carry-on power supply is a versatile 15 amp, hassle-free option. This is no surprise, given that Milwaukee has a strong reputation for intelligent engineering. With its compact and lightweight design, you can take it anywhere. It supports 15 amps output, which is crucial for working with a team that needs to be running multiple tools. This M18 Carry-on is expected to ship in October 2022.

Why portable power?

Even with the increased popularity (and effectiveness) of cordless power tools, we still rely on corded power supply on the job site. Battery packs die and frequently need recharge (obviously, you would only use this carry-on to charge non-M18 batteries). On top of that, not every tool has a cordless option. And with contractors going paperless, you’re seeing more laptops on job sites (or other sensitive electronic devices for viewing blueprints).

Introducing the Redback Pro 120V Cordless Power Tools

Last year, we added Redback to our catalog, and these tools have been flying off the shelves. In addition to the popular 40V Swift (brush motors) and Flex (brushless) series, Redback is the innovative manufacturer behind the MowRo robot lawnmower that automatically mows your grass for you. Well, it gets better. PlumbersStock now has the Redback Pro series, a line of 120V cordless power tools for lawn and garden care. These are also brushless motors, and the motor and the interchangeable Lithium-ion battery system offer a stunning amount of power.

Note: you’ll see the batteries have Ah ratings. This rating is called amp hours, and it signifies the power with which it can operate for an hour. So, for example, 3 Ah means that it can operate at 3 amps for an hour.

120V Leaf Blowers

A commercial-grade leaf blower makes clean-up easy. 120V batteries offer enough power to take care of quite a mess, and with multiple batteries (because you’ve bought numerous Redback tools), you can cover a large property. Choose between battery and kit combos. If you don’t need a battery, you can toggle to the tool only option from the product pages below:

Swift Cordless 40V Chainsaw Review

cutting with the swift 40v cordless chainsaw

by Nathan Baker

I live in Arizona, and I have a huge Honey Mesquite tree that is becoming a problem. During tsunami season, we experience incredibly strong winds. The tree is so big it’s getting close to covering the street and my neighbor’s driveway. A storm could potentially pull a limb right off and drop it on somebody’s nice truck or the roof of my house, and I want to avoid that.

I decided to buy a Swift EB212D2 chainsaw to take care of the problem. I’m very happy with the purchase, and I’ll cover exactly why in this Swift cordless 40v chainsaw review. PlumbersStock carries all Swift tools, and I’ve been very pleased with the mower and now the chainsaw that I’ve bought.

If you need a replacement 12″ blade, the specs are 3/8″ pitch – 43 Guage (Narrow Kerf) – 46 drive links.

21-Degree M18 FUEL Nailer

A 21-degree nailer is an excellent option for getting a lot of work done quickly. It will allow you to access corners, but not as tight of corners as 30-degree nailers.

30-Degree M18 FUEL Nailer

You’ll want this M18 FUEL nailer to get into tight spots because the angle allows you better access. Typically the steeper the degree, the smaller the magazine, but Milwaukee engineers have designed an extended clip that will enable more efficient use of your time with the tool.
