Smart Sweep is a Rotary Chimney Cleaning Kit designed to be used in any type of flue above most combustion appliances, with a power drill (which is not supplied).
It is obviously easier to use the device through a traditional fire opening, but Smart Sweep can also be used through stoves and other heating appliances connected with flue pipes of 125mm, (5 inches) diameter and above. SmartSweep is supplied in cardboard box as shown in the image.above.
8 x 1.25 metre POM rods There are eight rods supplied with this kit – providing sufficient assembly to remove soot products from a ten metre, (33 feet) high chimney. If a longer flue or chimney requires cleaning, additional rods are also available.
1 Flail Head with 8 Flails The Flail Head is designed to remove loose soot particles and fly ash from the walls of the flue.
1 Drill Adaptor The Drill Adaptor should be used in a conventional drill chuck. Drills should be set without hammer action.
Spare Rods If a longer flue or chimney requires cleaning, additional rods are also available.
Spare Drill Adaptor The Drill Adaptor is suitable for any conventional drill chuck. If the Kit is to be used with an SDS power drill, reasonably priced SDS chuck adaptors and chucks are available for the purpose. Either type of drill should be set without any hammer action.
Spare Flail Head with Flails The spare Sweeping Kit Head is supplied with flails and is ready to be used. As well we supply a full set of Replacement Flails. For replacement of the Flails, please read the Flails Replacement Section from the bottom of this page.
Replacing the flails
When all of the flails are withdrawn, the two halves of the head will separate. Loosening the grub screw in the top of the dome will enable the withdrawal of the existing flails. Four new hexagonal flails can be "bounched" and then inserted from each direction. Once in position, fully tighten the grub screw. This action forces the two section apart and locks the flails in position.
Connecting the rods, heads or drill adaptor Push the male connector at the upper end of a rod into the female connector at the lower end of another rod until the button A engages to lock the two sections together.
Separating the rods, heads or drill adaptor Fully push in the button A in the female connector and simply pull the components apart.
