The Government’s 100 per cent Tax Depreciation scheme caused a huge surge of drain cleaning jetter sales in June as plumbers moved to maximise their tax rebates.

The good news is that the Government has extended the program and not only is it running for another year but companies with turnovers of up to $10M can all benefit. There’s no wonder product innovators Aussie Pumps, Australia’s biggest manufacturer of jetting
equipment experienced record sales of jetters over the last twelve months.

“It was a big year and we predict that the extended tax depreciation rules will mean that even more plumbers will take the opportunity to invest in jetting gear,” said Aussie Pumps’ Mal Patel. “You don’t need to wait to the end of the year to get the benefit of using a jetter. The increase in productivity means you can clear more chokes in a day and that directly affects profitability,” he said.

The company has doubled production of its drain cleaning jetters to keep up with continuing growth in demand. The machines, built on the big production line at Australian Pump’s Castle Hill based two and half acre factory, are manufactured to ISO9001 Quality Standards and use “Big Berty” super heavy duty triplex pumps to provide loads of pressure and flow.

“Bertolini is a boutique Italian pump manufacturer that shares our passion for quality,” said Patel. “We have paired these triplex pumps with engines from the world’s leading manufacturers to develop the Aussie Cobra range of jetters,” he said.

One of the reasons for the huge success of the Aussie Cobras is the ease at which they can be set up to become a ute mounted jetter. The self-contained trolley mounted units that can be secured onto a ute with the use of a simple fixing bracket. This bracket, called the Cobra Loc, not only secures the unit in transit, but enables the jetter to be operated in situ without damage to the frame.
