Creatively blend proven technologies with intimate market knowledge and innovative thinking – and business can really grow!
That’s how 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. He then used video inspection equipment to confirm his worst fears.
Conventional chemical cleaning failed to remove the appalling risks of dangerous disease contamination. “Our cameras proved that chemicals don’t do the job,” he says, “What we saw of typical RV holding tank sanitation was absolutely horrid!”
So Hall marshaled his professional and technical experience to devise a safer, more thorough solution.
Working with General Pipe Cleaners, Hall incorporated General’s proven Jet Set® technologies with his proprietary equipment to found All Pro Water-Flow.
General’s gas and electric powered water jets – with on-demand Vibra-Pulse® for greater nozzle thrust around tight bends and down long lines – have long offered professional drain cleaners indispensable weapons against grease, sediment, ice and other soft blockages.
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.
Hall had used General equipment for over 15 years. So he says “it’s natural for us to pick products we already trusted. In fact, our very first JM-2900 is still going strong!”
An economical alternative to larger gas-powered jets, the JM-2900 is lighter and more maneuverable – yet maintains the same pressure and flow rate as competitive jets.
Power comes from a proven 13 hp Honda engine connected directly to a 3000 psi, 4 gpm triplex pump. The 200 ft. capacity hose reel with reel brake and brass swivel is mounted on a rugged, heavy duty frame with two ten inch “Flat-Free” foam core tires for maximum stability and easy handling.
Hall then developed a dozen custom adapters and, in close concert with General, adapted the JM-2900 for All Pro’s proprietary cleaning system.
“The JM-2900 is the power behind the technology we developed,” Hall says. “And General helped us plan and streamline equipment packages at the core of our business.”
With All Pro, RV owners needn’t rely on chemicals to rid holding tanks of odors and disease-causing waste material. “Friction from water flow, through our custom nozzle designs and General jets, thoroughly cleans holding tanks,” Hall says.
He also notes that harsh chemical cleansers eventually enter municipal sewage treatment plants. So All Pro’s proprietary approach makes environmental sense, too.
With millions of “RV’ers”, Hall sees plenty of expansion potential. “But we couldn’t have done this without General – specifically their JM-2900 – behind us,” he says. “Their equipment offered the best bang for our buck – superb durability, reliability, appearance and economy!”
