One particular repair problem got personal for Austin L. Montanti, owner of Montanti Mechanical – a commercial and residential renovation firm based on Staten Island, NY. “I purchased an apartment on Staten Island for myself – and quickly realized that the shut-off valves for the kitchen and bathroom sinks didn’t work,” he recalls. That’s why he grew concerned when building managers wouldn’t quickly shut off apartment water. So facing an unacceptable delay of several more hours, Montanti acted fast – and “outside the box”. He grabbed his new Cold-Shot® Pipe Freezing Kit from General Pipe Cleaners. “It was actually the first time I used it,” Montanti smiles. “Cold-Shot was really easy-to-use!”
“There’s nothing like it. It’s fantastic for clearing scale from inside lines. It flies around pipe bends!” That’s Sylvan Tieger on revolutionary ClogChopper® cutting tool from General Pipe Cleaners. “A registered master plumber like me can find lots of work in a city of eight million,” Tieger smiles. “My mechanic sometimes wonders why I put so little mileage on my truck; most of the time, I just travel a couple miles to jobs!” Much of that work is new construction. “That’s where ClogChopper really shines,” he says.
Plumbing runs in John Comerford Jr’s blood. His grandfather and father were plumbers. So were two brothers. Now one of his sons is, too. “Our name is on our businesses,” Comerford says. “No one in my family has disgraced it yet – and I’m not going to be the first!” The key to success, he claims, is simple: “don’t do anything you wouldn’t do in your own home – and choose the right tools for the job.” That’s why four generations of Comerford plumbing professionals have trusted tough, reliable drain cleaners from General Pipe Cleaners.
Grease clogged pipes produce problems. But the right drain cleaning equipment, Chris Fantauzzo contends, turns those problems into profits. “Health inspectors, for instance, want restaurants to clean grease traps regularly – often every six months,” the owner of Mercer Drain Cleaning Service says. Bar owners, municipal authorities, and homeowners, he adds, also suffer grease, sediment, sand, and ice. And every problem, he says, is a business opportunity. That’s why Fantauzzo’s company near Trenton, NJ added the popular, reliable JM-2900™ gas-powered water jet from General Pipe Cleaners to Mercer’s extensive mix of drain-cleaning and inspection solutions.
“General equipment is durable, and takes a beating,” says Michael Williams of Just Drains LLC. “We use our General tools 24/7 – 365 days a year, and they don’t fail us.” They last, too. “I bought my trusty old Sewermatic™ in 1980 – and it can still handle 30 to 40 root jobs a week!” Williams claims. “It’s got great torque, just like General’s line of Speedrooters®.” General equipment is durable, and takes a beating,” he says. “We use our General tools 24/7 – 365 days a year, and they don’t fail us. General equipment lets us power through tough problems that our competitors walk away from!
