This sooteater system consists of a bunch of flexible rods that connect together and then are inserted into a drill.
The drill is powered on and the brush is directed up the chimney.
Brush turns, the whips knock creosote off the walls of the chimney. There are several rods. We have enough to go 32 feet into our chimney.
Creosote sometimes is dry and crispy. It almost has a bacon aroma. It's not edible however. Our creosote is a slimely wet goop. Our chimney apparently doesn't heat correctly.
