Mini-Rooter Pro® - General Pipe Cleaners

This inexpensive, light weight machine has lots of time-saving features. For instance, you can remove the drum in seconds for more portability or to switch to a different diameter cable – with no mess and no lost time. A distributor tube inside the drum allows you to feed cable in and out without chucking and releasing the cable every few feet – so you finish quicker. An optional Power Cable Feed drives and retracts the cable at up to 16 feet per minute.

The drum carries up to 75 ft of 3/8” cable to clear 2” to 3” lines, or 1/2” cable for heavier work in 4” lines. For small drain work, you can order your Mini-Rooter Pro with a J-Drum for handling smaller, more flexible cables.

Some Mini-Rooter Pro safety features: A foot pedal that uses air pressure to start and stop the machines, with no electrical wiring between the pedal and motor, a ground fault circuit interrupter, and a high impact plastic guard covering the motor pulley.

Snake-Oil Plus

Snake-Oil Plus™ preserves and protects your sewer cables against rust and corrosion. It’s better than common lubricants because its special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture and replaces it with a rust-resistant coating. You’ll significantly extend the life of your cables and your sewer machine, including the drum, bearings, and power cable feed rollers. In addition, Snake Oil includes a deodorizer that gives your equipment a fresh, clean smell. Available in quarts (Cat # SOQ-S) or gallons (Cat # SOG-S).

Quick-Fix™

General Pipe Cleaners’ Quick-Fix™ let’s you quickly repair broken drain snakes in the field. The unique Quick-Fix let’s you continue working and finish the job without having to go back to your shop to repair or replace a broken cable. The Quick-Fix is available in 1/2”, 9/16”, 5/8”, and 3/4” sizes with female or male connectors.

The specially designed spring with a pre-welded female connecter is easy to attach in the field. Prepare your broken snake by cutting off the damaged or kinked end of the cable with bolt cutters or a hack saw. Then simply thread the Quick-Fix over the broken snake. No welder is required! All you need are vice-grips or a pair of pliers. Once it’s on, the Quick-Fix holds on so tightly that it simply cannot be removed, even if you wanted to.

ClogChopper®

Rip through tough stoppages with the unique ClogChopper® multi-function cutting tools. Six self-sharpening blades dig into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale, and crystallized urine, without risking pipe damage.

The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic, and clay pipes. As it spins it also self-sharpens as it scrapes along the pipe walls. It’s excellent for clearing stacks, downspouts, mains, as well as for drain lining jobs.
