np3General Pipe Cleaners, a division of General Wire Spring Company, offers a Kinetic Water Ram that clears clogged drains with green power. Just pump it up, insert in the drain, and snap the trigger. The environmentally safe Water Ram uses compressed air to generate a shock wave that pulverizes the stoppage instantly. The shock wave bypasses vents and goes around bends to reach the stoppage with only a two percent loss of power. The built in pump and pressure gauge lets the operator select the right amount of force for each job.  It is cleaner than using snakes, safer than chemicals, and does not use electrical power or CO2 gas.

An optional toilet attachment screws onto the front of the Ram to turn it into a powerful plunger. The specially designed attachment enables the operator to position the cone in the bowl to get a tighter seal.  This allows the blockage to be struck with greater impact without splash back.

The tool has an attractive plated body and comes in a sturdy metal tool box with a variety of accessories, including tapered rubber cones and a set of expansion plugs to handle 1-1/4 inch to 4 inch lines.

The company has also introduced the economical Metro-Rooter which is the Mini-Rooter of root cutting machines.

np4Narrow profile

With a capacity of 75 feet of 5/8 inch Flexicore wire rope centre cable, the Metro-Rooter handles roots and other tough stoppages in three inch through to six inch lines.  Or it can switch to 100 foot of 1/2 inch cable for smaller jobs.

Lighter and more compact than other root machines, its narrow profile facilitates handling in tight places, on stairs, and during loading onto trucks making it an ideal rental item. The manoeuvrable Metro-Rooter features a fold-down handle, truck loading wheel and tough, lightweight frame on 10 inch semi-pneumatic wheels for easy transport.

Heavy-duty wire tightly coiled around 49 strand aircraft-type wire rope, Flexicore cable offers unequalled strength and the right amount of flexibility.  The company says it is so tough it backs it up with a one-year warranty against defect or breakage.
