We were in a friends driveway and his sewer clean out was on the other side of the house in the back yard. It was up hill and 132 feet away from the bus. It did it with no problems through a 5/8 inch garden hose we had on board.  Shocked

ONe thing nice about the powered units is being able to use a smaller diameter hose. The bit slinky is a bit of an annoyance and one smaller and can be flattened would be much nicer for storing. Hard to imagine a 100' slinky in the bay
