Snake-Oil™ - General Pipe Cleaners

Snake-Oil™ preserves and protects 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 sewer machine, including the drum, bearings and power cable feed rollers. Snake Oil also includes a deodorizer to give equipment a fresh, clean smell. Available in quarts or gallons.

 

Snake-Oil Classic

Preserves & Protects Sewer Cables & Equipment

Experienced professionals call it the dependable way to preserve and protect sewer cables from rust.

General’s Snake-Oil Classic™ is better than common lubricants. Its special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture and replaces it with a rust resistant coating.

Sewer cables and machines, including drums, bearings and power cable feeds, enjoy significantly extended life. And the lemon scented deodorant gives everything a fresh, clean smell.

It’s easy to use, too. Just pour a quantity of the Snake-Oil Classic into the drum and rotate the container, letting the oil contact as much of the cable as possible. Then drain off excess Snake-Oil Classic and allow the cable to air-dry.

Snake-Oil Classic is available in either quart or gallon containers
