A two-building Aberdeen, SD office complex suffered constant sewer line back-ups.
Local topography forced the facility’s new 300’ sewer line into an “essentially flat” connection to city services. Authorities would not pay for a pump. And stoppages simply worsened with time.
Enter Aberdeen Plumbing & Heating Services, Inc. – with their brawny JM-3055 water jet from General Pipe Cleaners.
“We’ve done service, remodeling, and new construction plumbing work for that customer’s properties over 40 years,” Aberdeen co-owner Bob Rux reports. “And you do things right to keep a relationship that long.”
Slicing Through Long-Time, Long-Line Problems
That’s exactly what Aberdeen did.
The JM-3055 water jet quickly cleared the line. And Aberdeen won the preventive maintenance contract to clean the conduit every spring and fall.
“JM-3055 turned day-long work into a few-hour job,” Rux smiles. “That’s the sort of equipment efficiency and reliability that lets us do more business in a day!”
Part of the broad range of popular, award-winning Jet-Set® electric, gas and trailer water jets, General’s powerful JM-3055 packs the punch to slice through tough debris, grease, sludge, sand, and ice blockages in long, large drain lines.
Stubborn stoppages like those can prove troublesome for cable drain cleaners. But “the JM-3055 cleans out those kinds of clogs in pipes so much better than cable machines do,” Aberdeen co-owner Kyle Price adds. “That’s why it worked so well on our customer’s sewer-line.”
In fact, General’s muscular machine boasts the highest flow rate of any water jet without a holding tank. A 3000-psi, 5.5 gpm pump driven by a 16 hp (480 cc) Briggs Vanguard engine creates a high-pressure water stream that pulverizes problems in large lines up to 8” in diameter and long runs up to 600 ft long.
Price calls that a “big advantage”. Nozzle thrust drives the hose down long, large-diameter lines – and gives wall-to-wall pipe cleaning action.
Versatile Business Builder
The JM-3055 gas jet can be used to clear clogs from inside lines as well when it’s connected to the optional Cart-Reel™. It lets you use the power of gas jets in buildings and confined spaces where exhaust fumes can be dangerous.
Rux and Price agree.
“We regularly use our JM-3055 to clean sewer lines at the county courthouse and county jail,” Rux remarks. “And we’ll shortly use it on drains at a large machining facility” – a regular Aberdeen drain cleaning customer.
“They use lots of soaps with pumice – which, over time, builds up,” Price adds. “The JM-3055 gives us the reach and power to clean those long lines.”
Designed For Durability
General’s machine rides on four, 13-inch “flat-free” foam core tires for rugged reliability in the field. And a wheel brake securely positions the whole unit during work.
Potent Professional Arsenal
“Trust is very important,” Bob Rux stresses. “To maintain our professional reputation, we got to rely on our tools.”
“From customer service through technical support to the equipment performance on the job,” Kyle Price concludes, “General Pipe Cleaners has earned our trust!”
