Kansas City Contractor Finds an Easier Way to Locate Pipe and Sewer Cameras

Category: Diagnostic Tools

“We have a great name to protect,” says Tim Rogers, in charge of sewer and drain-cleaning operations for R-Mech Heating Cooling & Plumbing. “That’s why we carefully research and choose all our equipment!”

A multiple Angie’s List “Super Service Award” winner, R-Mech forged a 10-year reputation for professional excellence throughout the Kansas City, MO area. That’s because they focus on expert service for every residential and commercial customer.

“People don’t want lawns and driveways needlessly torn-up trying to find problems,” Rogers adds. “Quickly locating troubles is ‘Job Number 1’.”

And that’s why R-Mech’s video-inspection services count on the Hot Spot® Pipe Locator from General Pipe Cleaners.

Superior Accuracy & Versatility

Hot Spot offers matchless durability, accuracy and reliability. General’s pipe locator lets plumbing and drain cleaning professionals precisely pinpoint problems – without unnecessarily destroying costly pavement or expensive landscaping to find breaks or blockages.

“I use Hot Spot 10 times a week,” Rogers notes. “And it’s dead-on-the-money – 100% of the time!”

Superb for all plumbing and facility-maintenance needs, the versatile Hot Spot™ pipe & utilities locator eliminates guess work when inspecting and tracing sewer & drain lines, septic tanks, active power lines and buried utilities.

“I’ve used Hot Spot on gas and water lines with excellent accuracy,” Rogers adds. “No problems, ‘ghosts’ or guessing.”

Precision like that helps buttress R-Mech’s professional image. “With competitive locators, I’d have to walk a complicated pattern, spending 10-15 minutes just to find a problem,” he says. “But Hot Spot takes me right to customer troubles. I simply follow on-screen arrows!”

Quick, Simple, Intuitive Operation

With Hot Spot, even novice operators can enjoy rapid results.

“I watched the General video that came with our Hot Spot,” Rogers reveals. “And I use it right from the get-go. I was very pleased!”

No deciphering numbers and bar graphs. No juggling multiple tracking screens. The easy, menu-based interface makes Hot-Spot simpler to use than other locators.

Workplace abuse can’t compromise General’s tough tool, either. Rated at IP65, Hot-Spot is dust-proof, and dirt and water-resistant. It aced the one-meter drop test. And its screen passed the 18-inch steel ball drop test.

Hot-Spot also offers superior battery life – more than twice that of competitive pipe locators. The automatic shutdown feature saves power. And the USB port lets users upgrade software – or grab screen captures.

Part Of A Total General Product Solution

Hot Spot perfectly augments General’s rugged, all-in-one Gen-Eye USB ® video inspection system.

With everything necessary to trouble-shoot 2” through 10” lines, the Gen-Eye sewer inspection camera system sports a self-leveling color camera, USB recording capabilities, 11 lb. case, 10.4” LCD color monitor, keyboard for titling, AC/DC power – and more.

Versatile, Rugged Performer

Hot-Spot has helped R-Mech maintain its matchless reputation for excellent sewer and drain-cleaning service.

It would have been easy for Rodgers to go with the pipe inspection equipment he was used to. But he was so impressed with the Hot Spot pipe locator and decided to give it a try. And he’s glad he did.

“Since getting Hot-Spot, we’ve never had to make a second dig or cut multiple holes. It’s been dead-on every time,” he concludes. “It’s a highly impressive addition to our professional equipment arsenal!”
