Snake-Oil™

Snake-Oil™ preserves and protects your sewer cables against rust and corrosion. It’s better than common lubricants because its special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture and replaces it with a rust-resistant coating. You’ll significantly extend the life of your cables and your sewer machine, including the drum, bearings, and power cable feed rollers. In addition, Snake Oil includes a deodorizer that gives your equipment a fresh, clean smell. Available in quarts or gallons.

Quick-Fix™

General Pipe Cleaners’ Quick-Fix™ let’s you quickly repair broken drain snakes in the field. The unique Quick-Fix let’s you continue working and finish the job without having to go back to your shop to repair or replace a broken cable. The Quick-Fix is available in 1/2”, 9/16” 5/8” and 3/4” sizes with female or male connectors.

The specially designed spring with a pre-welded female connecter is easy to attach in the field. Prepare your broken snake by cutting off the damaged or kinked end of the cable with bolt cutters or a hack saw. Then simply thread the Quick-Fix over the broken snake. No welder is required! All you need are vice-grips or a pair of pliers. Once it’s on, the Quick-Fix holds on so tightly that it simply cannot be removed, even if you wanted to.

Keep a Quick-Fix in your tool box for emergencies and you’ll never lose time on the job because of a broken snake again.

Sectional Cables With General® Connectors

Flexichain "G Connector"

Sections for I-95, Root 66, Model 88, Hot-Rodder and Rodrunner come in the all purpose Flexichain which has a chain center, a stiffer Proflex which has a spring center, and a hollow style. Proflex is also available with a heavier duty 5/8″ spring center. Choose from three coupling styles. They snap together in a second and are taken apart quickly with a spanner wrench or uncoupling key. With the more recently developed “G” connector, no torque is put on the locking pin when running in reverse, making it a durable coupling.

Success Stories

“Drain cleaning can be pretty messy, and you expect to see some nasty stuff,” he admits, “But imagine my surprise when my Super-Vee™ once snaked a Batman toy from a line. I still don’t know how I did it!”

John Comerford Jr Cleveland, OH

I offer a 30-day warranty on every drain-cleaning job, but I can’t give a warranty if I don’t do the job right, and I can’t do the job right if I don’t have the right tools. That’s why I run my whole company with General products, they enhance our professional image!

Chris Fantauzzo Trenton, NJ

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!
