Bailey-Chimset - Bailey Drain Rod & Chimney Set In Carry Bag - £28.58 Delivery Included

Bailey-Chimset - Bailey Drain Rod & Chimney Set In Carry Bag - £28.58 Delivery Included

Found 11th Mar 2010
Just chasing best deal on the quite renowned "bailey bros" (Birmingham) blue drain & chimney cleaning rods.. so cheap price for a premium brand in it's field.
(don't vote cold just because you've not got a chimney to sweep)!
stumbled upon this set which is around 1/2 the price of buying from the manufacturers recommended seller.
They take paypal & google checkout

to the door (including a quick 10% discount code "thankyou" I was able to purchase the set for £28.58
I should explain we use our multi-fuel stove in the living room as our main source of heat, I generally clean my chimney 3-4 times per year as we use it around 18 hrs per day..
Was overdue for a clean, didn't have a set to hand (cheap b&q type set snapped in chimney) ..then several nights ago had a small chimney fire (due to using our emergency supply of poor quality coal, long story)
I sorted the fire out, however the fire brigade checked it out regardless, ..not much debris up there either.
However if my old set (used ONCE) had'nt snapped then I wouldn't have forgotton during the season as life got in the way.
coal is often a sluggish burner at the best of times & can therefore choke your chimney.
Bailey bros are a pro choice, this deal gets you enough rods for most chimneys (other shorter sets available) +bag, + delivery + a head that on another site is £11.50

Limited to only us with fires, however you've all got drains on your properties & these rods are no different whether going up a chimney or down blocked drains..
Good price that I felt I ought to share, & hopefully prevent a fire outbreak to someones home.

(incidentally theres a discount on Bamford till midnight tonight for orders over £50, though that's a fiver off)
consider trying applying the "thankyou" without quotes when checking out (bamfords own discount box NOT paypals) ..that was originally issued xmas last year on twitter but worked for me & is theoretically 10% on anything currently.
hopefully its not often you will need a set of these but when you need em your gonna need em big time " because if you ever get a drain blockage etc , its going to cost you tens times this to get it fixed .
Well said, another thing, if you buy these individually (ie 1x 1 metre) theyre typically £4.60 - £4.90 each, so the math really works out favourably.
IF you are lucky & have no problems with your chimney a single sweep costs £25 upward, bearing in mind sweeping should happen several times over & after the burning season..
just received this morning, very impressed, good quality, fits together much better than last set, lighter(possibly) proper brass screw fittings, heavy duty bag, good quality drain attatchments.
Just to give peeps an idea.. the cost from another merchant for this kit is...

With a fully integrated manufacturing facility the company is able to carefully control the quality standards of each component prior to final assembly.

Having compared to my old set these feel far more substantial, smooth to screw together, (even the rod fittings seem to align when pieced together, drain attatchments it came with feel alot more robust than a cheap set ..less reliant upon luck to get the job done!
(commendations to Bamford trading for both price, delivery & despatch times)
I am a professional chimney sweep and yes, I use Bailey rods. But, the 16" brush that you receive is not really man enough to sweep the chimney properly. The bristles are too thin, plus you need the correct size brush for the job. Professionally made brushes cost a lot more than the whole set and are the only way forward.. I recommend you use a professionally qualified sweep and get the job done properly, plus a certificate.
