RectorSeal Introduces LineShot Tool for Clearing Blocked HVAC/R Condensate Lines

September 30, 2019

RectorSeal®, Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality HVAC/R tools and accessories, introduces LineShot, the HVAC industry’s only CO2 pressurized condensate line flushing tool designed specifically for Safe-T-Switch®, All-Access and other brands of access cleanout fittings on air conditioning systems.

LineShot by RectorSealLineShot is a 5-1/2-inch-long (140-mm), lightweight hand-held reusable tool that dispenses a 250-psi (17.2-bar) pressurized burst from a recyclable CO2 cartridge (sold separately) to flush debris from blocked condensate drain lines. The ergonomic handle-shaped body features a non-slip, thumb-activated trigger that fires a steady air stream once the red safety lever is released.

Lineshot is designed as an easy, time-saving solution that, in most applications, circumvents more labor-intensive blockage clearing techniques, such as rodding or condensate drain line disassembly.

Connection is fast and easy with a 14-inch-long (355-mm) flexible PVC hose featuring 5/16-inch (8-mm) brass female fittings that connect the tool to cleanout models that have a built-in Schrader valve. LineShot also accommodates other cleanout brands, such as the Safe-T-Switch SS1, via an included conical rubber adaptor, which has an embedded Schrader valve for connecting to the hose/fitting. The tapered design allows service techs to hold the adaptor onto any 3/8 to 3/4-inch (9.5 to 19-mm) condensate pipe access openings for a tight, maximum pressurization and leak-proof seal.

Other LineShot benefits include:

  • 4-inch-long x 2-inch-diameter (102 x 51-mm) stainless steel CO2 cartridge holds 0.5-ounces (16-grams), enough to clear several condensate line blockages;
  • Zip-tied onto four color, illustrated paper board packaging with a cutout that accommodates peggable merchandising;
  • Hose fittings are securely attached with threaded connections;
  • Body and cartridge available separately at most HVAC wholesale distributors; replacement cartridges are also conveniently available at several major retailers;
  • One-year warranty.
