• Watch Multi-Function Cutting Tools Rip Through Tough Stoppages

    March 9, 2017 | Videos

    Tough clogs are no match for ClogChopper multi-function cutting tools. Tune in as Dave Dunbar of General Pipe Cleaners explains how the unique tools have revolutionized drain cleaning.

    “The main problem we have at the factory is just shipping them fast enough,” Dunbar says. “Once somebody tries them they never want to go back to other types of cutters.”

    Six self-sharpening blades dig into encrusted debris and root masses, easily grinding up stoppages, scale and crystallized urine, without risking pipe damage.

    The spherical design maneuvers around tight bends and traps, thoroughly and safely cleaning metal, plastic and clay pipes. As it spins it also self-sharpens as it scrapes along the pipe walls. It’s excellent for clearing stacks, downspouts and mains, as well as for drainlining jobs.

  • Pinpoint Hard-to-Find Leaks With the Gen-Ear LE Locator

    April 6, 2017 | Videos

    The General Pipe Cleaners Gen-Ear LE water leak locator is a simplified, more economical tool with stronger sound amplification than other systems. Use it to pinpoint water leaks in residential and commercial waterlines, whether they are under concrete slabs, under carpets or in open fields.

    The compact amplifier fits easily in the palm of your hand. It provides noise-free amplification with built-in preset audio filters, so you don’t have to guess what settings to use. And the high-performance headphones with noise cancellation features block out interference from surrounding ambient noise.

    The ground sensor listens for the gurgling or hammering of water escaping from a cracked pipe under concrete, asphalt or tile. For soft surfaces like grass or carpet, use the probe rods. Or, for above-ground pipes or hydrants, you can use both the probe rods or the magnet attachment.
