Success Stories

Plumbing runs in John Comerford Jr’s blood. His grandfather and father were plumbers. So were two brothers. Now one of his sons is, too. “Our name is on our businesses,” Comerford says. “No one in my family has disgraced it yet – and I’m not going to be the first!” The key to success, he claims, is simple: “don’t do anything you wouldn’t do in your own home – and choose the right tools for the job.” That’s why four generations of Comerford plumbing professionals have trusted tough, reliable drain cleaners from General Pipe Cleaners.

Grease clogged pipes produce problems.  But the right drain cleaning equipment, Chris Fantauzzo contends, turns those problems into profits. “Health inspectors, for instance, want restaurants to clean grease traps regularly – often every six months,” the owner of Mercer Drain Cleaning Service says.  Bar owners, municipal authorities, and homeowners, he adds, also suffer grease, sediment, sand, and ice. And every problem, he says, is a business opportunity. That’s why Fantauzzo’s company near Trenton, NJ added the popular, reliable JM-2900™ gas-powered water jet from General Pipe Cleaners to Mercer’s extensive mix of drain-cleaning and inspection solutions.
