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,” he recalls. “So the sink was receiving discharges from 5 floors above.”
That allowed waste to fill the sink every time a fixture above was used. “It looked like a soft stoppage, and a cable machine probably wouldn’t have worked,” Tieger adds.
Powerful Tool Clears Tough “FOG” Clogs
The lightweight, compact Kinetic Water Ram from General Pipe Cleaners safely, quickly and cleanly clears clogged sinks and showers, toilets and tubs with Kinetic Energy.
Kinetic Water Ram unleashes a powerful burst of compressed air that drives a clog-busting shock wave through water at 4,700 ft./second. It effectively clears hair, rust, grease, sediment and scale from lines from 1-1/4” to 4” in diameter.
“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!”
Versatile & Easy To Use
General’s pioneering product is especially effective clearing slow draining tubs when the stoppage is on the far side of a drum trap – or through narrow lines in trailer homes that can be hard on a snake.
“I use it for all my tub stoppages,” he adds. “Plus on all sorts of sinks, basins, and floor and roof drains.”
The compact, hand-held tool is easy to transport and use. It weighs just 10 lbs.
Simply pump the Kinetic Water Ram to the desired pressure, firmly position the flexible cone over the drain opening, and snap the trigger. A powerful shock wave is unleashed, clearing most clogs with amazing speed.
There’s no pressure build-up within the system, either. The shock wave bypasses stacks and vents. 98% of the force is directed down the line and only 2% against pipe walls.
The Kinetic Water Ram comes standard with a 4” flexible cone, caulking hose, and five tapered rubber plugs for sealing openings from 1-1/4” through 4” in diameter. A Schraeder valve is included for use with an external air compressor when clearing difficult blockages.
An optional toilet attachment screws onto the front of the Kinetic Water Ram – permitting firmer positioning in the bowl to act like a powerful plunger.
The Bottom Line
“I judge how good a tool is by how fast it pays for itself,” Tieger concludes. “With Kinetic Water Ram, General has one hell of a great product!”
