Jetter Storms Through Big-Line Blockages, Helping Ohio Pro Boost Business

For the biggest, meanest drain cleaning jobs in Columbus, Ohio, locals trust Ron Zimmerman, owner of R&B Sewer & Drain.

R&B subcontracts drain cleaning services to nearly 30 plumbing professionals within 100 miles of Ohio’s capital. And they routinely tap R&B for their most challenging drain cleaning emergencies.

So Zimmerman counts on durable, reliable drain cleaning and inspection solutions from General Pipe Cleaners — especially the JM-2512 Typhoon trailer jet.

Storming through big jobs

The brawny gas-powered water jetter blasts grease, sediment, ice and other blockages from large lines or in remote locations — with more features than competitive designs offer.

With a 2,500 psi, 12 gpm pump for high water flow, the JM-2512 pulverizes clogs with wall-to-wall cleaning action from its hefty 200-gallon holding tank. Its powerful 24 hp (690 cc) Honda engine ensures extended performance on stubborn stoppages. On-demand Vibra-pulse helps slide the nozzle around tight bends and down long lines.

“It always works,” he says. “In one month alone, we used our Typhoon on at least 30 jobs.”

Typhoon saves the day

One of those jobs concerned an elderly woman. An unscrupulous competitor claimed she’d need a new clean-out for $5,000.

“Our Gen-Eye SD video camera spotted the real problem: roots,” Zimmerman says. “And our Typhoon with the Chain Saw Nozzle handled the job at a small fraction of the first company’s estimate.”

General’s Chain Saw Nozzle rips through roots and scrapes scale off the walls of the pipe in 4-, 6-, 8- and 10-inch lines. 

Reputation is vital

“Almost all our equipment is General,” says Zimmerman, who also owns a compact, portable J-1600 electric water jet — brother to the popular JM-1450 — for smaller jobs in 1.5- to 4-inch lines. His arsenal sports some of the most effective drain cleaning solutions available, including the versatile Maxi-Rooter, Mini-Rooter and Super-Vee.

R&B offers 30-day warranties on drain cleaning jobs. They never advertise. And 100 percent of their business comes from customer referrals.

“But I can’t give a warranty if I don’t do the job right,” he says. “And I can’t do the job right if I don’t have the right tools.”

That’s why Zimmerman built his business around tried-and-true drain cleaning and inspection equipment from General Pipe Cleaners.

“General products enhance our professional image.”
