A sickening stench had overpowered the San Bernadino-area outlet for a major California supermarket chain. Something had to be done — fast. That’s when store managers called drain cleaning professional Howard Baron, owner of Village Plumbing in the Big Bear Lake resort community. Conventional drain cleaning methods initially failed. Baron tried clearing the clog with a cable through the last remaining floor drain at the head of the 75-ft. line. That’s when Baron reached for his Kinetic Water Ram™ from General Pipe Cleaners. “I never used it before — and the store was really desperate!” he chuckles. “But I just read the package instructions, and it worked: it’s really easy to operate.”
A clogged church kitchen sink prompted a routine call for drain cleaning help. But New York City plumbing pro Sylvan Tieger discovered more serious trouble – total stoppage in a 4” stack. “The 4” soil line was blocked below the church’s kitchen sink on the main floor. This was a bad blockage”, Tieger notes. “And it frankly took me a couple dozen times before I finally heard the ‘whoosh’ that – believe it or not – cleared the entire 4” stack stoppage!” Results like that made him a believer. “This one job paid more than the tool cost me,” he reveals. “Now I got one Kinetic Water Ram for each of my three crews, my home and my daughter!” he laughs. “On ‘FOG’ – fats, oil and grease – it’s my favorite tool!”
“I don’t want competitors to know I use this tool. Some customers think I have super powers!” That’s Omar Taylor talking about the lightweight, compact Kinetic Water Ram™ from General Pipe Cleaners.

Kids do the darndest things – like stuff pea gravel into new underground conduit for residential outside lighting. That’s what Bob Shumway – owner of Shumway’s, a Rockford, IL maintenance & landscaping service – discovered when snaking electrical wiring through the buried pipe. “I tried fish tape – but couldn’t get past the pebbles!” he recalls. That’s when Shumway grabbed his lightweight, compact Kinetic Water Ram™ from General Pipe Cleaners.
Blockage of a critical 5” overflow pipe beneath a large artificial lake at Dospat Dam, Bulgaria, posed extreme danger to dam wall integrity – risking catastrophic failure. Over 50 years of hardened sediment and debris had accumulated. Drainage reduced to a trickle. And construction of a new removal conduit proved unfeasible. That’s when Double D Engineering Ltd, European specialists in industrial cleaning technologies and services, stepped in – with an “outside the box” idea. “Economics and facility condition forced us to work with the existing pipeline,” Dimiter Dimitrov, company manager, noted. “So we opted for a compact, portable water jet solution.” The JM-3080 gas water jet 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 want restaurants to clean grease traps regularly,” Mercer Drain Cleaning Service’s owner says. Bar owners, municipal authorities, and homeowners, he adds, also suffer grease, sediment, sand, and ice. That’s why Fantauzzo’s central New Jersey company added the popular, reliable JM-2900™ gas-powered water jet from General Pipe Cleaners to Mercer’s mix of drain-cleaning and inspection solutions.
Preston Hall of All Pro Water-Flow revolutionized how the world cleans RV, aircraft and boat holding tanks. Now the Colorado-based entrepreneur has launched “the biggest untouched service industry in the U.S. in 50 years.” An RV owner and professional plumber, Hall grew seriously concerned with inadequate, unsanitary chemical treatments for vehicle holding tanks. With a wide variety of Jet Set® models available, Hall admired the reliable, rugged technology, transportability and safety features. And he chose General’s JM-2900™ gas-powered water jet – the first jet he chose for his plumbing business – as All Pro’s “power” source.
“The compact size makes it great for one-man operation – and it’s perfect for much of the work I do!” That’s Craig Casteen on the lightweight JM-1000 Mini-Jet™ from General Pipe Cleaners. Owner of Casteen Plumbing & Repair in Rose Hill, NC, Casteen can find himself in some pretty tight spots. “There are lots of crawl spaces beneath homes in North Carolina,” he says. “And I’m often under someone’s house – by myself – doing plumbing and drain cleaning work.”
Serious kitchen drain stoppages at Southwest Medical Center menaced operations and sanitation. Worse, a parade of plumbers couldn’t cure the chronic quandary. Enter Linn’s Plumbing LLC of Chandler, Oklahoma. With a statewide reputation for outstanding service and professionalism, owner Larry Linn teamed trusted drain cleaners from General Pipe Cleaners to spot – and solve – the true trouble. Using one of his Gen-Eye® video pipe inspection systems, he first pinpointed the problem, a broken cast-iron pipe. “Six other competitors just snaked debris around, never fixing the underlying mess.” Then Linn cleared the line with a Speedrooter 92®.
