Gen-Eye Saves Landlord BIG BUCK$

Gen-Eye SDP video pipe inspection systemThe sewer line clogged at a Tulsa OK residential property. The frantic renter immediately called a local plumber – who demanded $1,500 for excavation and repair.

But the landlord contacted Chris Wade, owner of Precision Plumbing, instead.

For 20 years, Precision has guarded an outstanding reputation for professionalism, dependability and honesty throughout Tulsa’s metro area.

“We’re not fly-by-night plumbers,” Wade says. “We get 100% of our business by word-of-mouth. So our six crews always prioritize superior service and customer satisfaction.”

That’s why Wade carefully selects Precision’s equipment: “When you’re safeguarding a reputation for quality work, you choose tough, reliable tools. And we only trust equipment from General Pipe Cleaners!”

Right Equipment Mix Tackles The Task

Using one of their Gen-Eye® video inspection systems, Wade’s crew instantly spotted the trouble – tree roots.  Then using a 4” cutter on their Speedrooter® power drain cleaner with automatic feed from General, Precision’s pros quickly cleared the line.

“We saved the customer around $1,300 – and didn’t dig-up a thing!” Chris Wade laughs.

Versatile, rugged Gen-Eye® systems let plumbing and drain cleaning professionals trouble-shoot 2” through 10” lines.  The light-weight, popular “SD” family, for instance, includes a:

  • Larger, 10.4” LCD screen
  • Built-in waterproof keyboard
  • Integral SD recorder
  • Heavy-duty Pelican case

General’s new Gen-Eye SDP® version adds Wi-Fi capability, a 4 hour rechargeable battery and a sunlight readable screen.  It also includes a self-leveling color camera, on-screen distance counter, date & time stamp, voiceover unit, camera test port, and DC power option.

Superior Accuracy & Versatility

For matchless accuracy in tracking trouble, Precision Plumbing also trusts their new Hot Spot® Pipe Locator from General.

Rugged, easy-to-use Hot Spot® precisely pinpoints problems – without unnecessarily digging up costly pavement or landscaping to find breaks or blockages.  It also eliminates guesswork inspecting and tracing sewer and drain lines, septic tanks, active power lines and buried utilities.

“It saves so much time on water lines, gas lines, power lines – you name it,” Wade claims. “It’s always dead on the nose – and still works with older Gen-Eye® equipment!”

Drain Cleaning Power For All Tasks

Once they locate blockages, Precision’s pros count on reliable drain cleaning machines from General.

Great for long, tough jobs the latest Speedrooter 92® blends rugged reliability with optimal control and ease-of-use.  Great on tree roots, the field-proven machine features a braced frame at key stress points, drum design for longer bearing wear, and Flexicore® cable – the industry standard for toughness.

Heavy duty Flexicore® cable blends superior strength and kinking resistance with optimal flexibility.  It carries the industry’s best warranty – one-year protection against breakage.

Precision Plumbing’s equipment array also includes General standards like the Mini-Rooter® and Super-Vee® cable drain cleaners.

Consumer Service Boosts Bottom Line

Chris Wade learned his trade – and personal ethics – from his dad, also a plumber.

“I won’t let unreliable equipment leave us in bad spots,” Wade concludes. “Your reputation stays with you – and you don’t want to mar that.”

That’s why he trusts General.  “It’s great equipment: I won’t buy anything else!”
