These Rods are generally acknowledged as the best quality cleaning rods available which are specified on a world wide basis and are the preferred choice of professionals. Blue Rods® have earned an international reputation for their reliability, strength, rigidity and the right amount of flexibility.
They have been developed through many years of constant research and development, the rods are manufactured from the highest grade of polypropylene whilst the joints are manufactured from solid brass. To ensure strength and durability during use the brass joints are securely fitted to the rods by brass rivets.
All rods are offered with two types of joints, either Universal or Lockfast:
Lockfast drain rods are some of the best on the market. All you need to do is a quick search on the Internet, and you will notice that these rods have an outstanding reputation in the industry. Most customers have given them a five-star rating. With that being said, read on to discover more about them.
Lockfast drainage rods are manufactured by Bailey Products. They lead the way when it comes to chimney and drain cleaning rods, duct rods and accessories, and they have an outstanding reputation in the industry. When you purchase a Bailey product, you know you are going to get quality every time. But what is it about the Lockfast drain rods that makes them so popular? Well, the name itself gives a hint: lock-fast. The connection secures quickly and easily. At the end of each length, there is a square brass peg, and this will engage in a rectangular-shape socket at the end of the next rod piece. It is as simple as that: the connection is secure. Because of the way these rods are put together, you do not need to remember to rotate in a clockwise direction all of the time, which can be the case with other types of rods. Unlike cheaper versions, the rods will not come apart underground if you rotate them anticlockwise due to the square peg. This is a great insurance policy against creating more problems than you solve when attempting to remove a blockage. It is not hard to see why so many people are so satisfied.

Bailey’s rods, produced to British Telecom specification, are made from PVC in lengths up to 3 metres, fitted with brass joints. The joints can be either Ferret type as supplied to British Telecom. In addition a 250 metre
PVC coil is available.
Type Of Joint
Ferret joints operate on the principle of a spring loaded pin engaging into a mating hole when the joints are screwed together. The trigger, which is flush with the body of the joint, is pressed for quick release. This ensures total security of the joint.This type of joint is favored as there are no sharp edges to damage existing cable in the duct, or the duct itself.Ferret joints are made in two sizes (for 15⁄16" and 1⁄2" diameter rods). To couple the different sizes together an adapter is used.
Rods are supplied in yellow.
Glass Fibre Rods
We offer 10mm diameter white solid glass fibre rods. These are more rigid than the 1⁄2" PVC rods. They are fitted with non-locking joints which will not couple with any other type of joint. These rods must be rotated clockwise in use to help prevent them becoming unscrewed.
