General Pipe Cleaners’ popular Sewerooter T-4™ mid-size drain cleaner packs the performance, punch, and portability to unclog 3” to 6” diameter lines up to 100 feet long.
Plumbing, drain cleaning, and maintenance pros love it. With more cleaning power than its T-3 predecessor, Sewerooter T-4 carries 100 feet of 9/16” Flexicore® cable to clear stubborn stoppages in 3” to 4” inside lines. Heavy duty 9/16” cable provides more torque than traditional 1/2” cables offer, yet can clean the same size drain lines.
Need to clear tree roots and other tough clogs from 3” to 6” lines? Simply switch drums to 75 feet of 5/8” Flexicore cable. To adjust to different cable sizes, just turn a knob atop the feed. No screwdriver required!
General’s labor saving, variable speed Power Cable Feed also offer enhanced safety and control through blockages. Users easily guide the cable in and out of the line at up to 20 feet per minute – yet keep hands clean and off spinning cable.
Sewerooter T-4 features a fold-down handle, stair climbers, and truck loading wheel for easy transport, maneuvering, and storage. Its robust, reinforced frame smoothly rides on big 10” semi-pneumatic wheels.
The powder coated metal drum includes General’s unique, self-aligning Flexitube™ distributor tube to reduce cable tangling. And a heavy-duty 1/3 hp capacitor-type motor with thermal overload protection powers Sewerooter T-4.
Flexicore cable offers superior kinking resistance and unequalled strength with the right amount of flexibility. It’s so tough that it carries the best warranty in the business with a one-year protection against defect and breakage.

“I grab two things when I leave my truck: my flashlight and my VersaPlunge”.

“I grab two things when I leave my truck: my flashlight and my VersaPlunge”.

That’s Michael Williams, Field Manager for Just Drains LLC – the “the Number 1 drain cleaning company in Philadelphia” – on the revolutionary new plunger from General Pipe Cleaners.

“It’s what pros use,” he quickly adds. “And it’s what we recommend!”

Williams knows what he’s talking about. With six expert crews, Just Drains LLC serves Southeastern Pennsylvania from the Delaware River to Harrisburg. And their seasoned professionals demand maximum performance from all the tools they have.

Innovative New Plunger Design

With its patented, extremely pliable VersaFlange™ cone, the VersaPlunge® plunger easily conforms to nearly any shaped toilet bowl opening, creating a tight seal in virtually any toilet design.

Williams pulls no punches: “It works better than any other plunger on the market. Period.”

Traditional plungers, by contrast, have hard rubber round cones – incompletely and loosely sealing the bowl drain, risking messy, germ-laden splash-back.

“VersaPlunge gives both the suction and tight seal you need,” Williams notes. “Where you put it, VersaPlunge stays.”

Extra Performance When It Counts

“Its remarkable,” he continues. “You don’t get any back-pressure – and no blow-back. If you push down on a conventional plunger, it can actually collapse on you – and you gotta fight to bring it back up.”

Not with VersaPlunge, he declares.

General’s innovative tool sports a convenient relief valve in the handle to minimize overflow. And its super-compressible, accordion-style bellows lets users apply extra force on stubborn stoppages.

“VersaPlunge comes back up – and actually ‘breathes’,” Williams contends. “As you push down, it stays in place – gives what you need to get the full plunge each time.”

For More Than Just Toilets

VersaPlunge is extremely versatile, too.

Roll up the VersaFlange end – and make a flat bottom to clear sinks, tubs, and other drain openings.

“You can use in floor drain traps to make sure the trap doesn’t have debris in it,” said Williams. “If it still holding water you can plunge it to get it open without using the big machine.”

That’s why many professionals carry extra VersaPlunge plungers to handle a range of problems.

“The flexibility of the handle and bellows lets you precisely position VersaPlunge for maximum performance,” he explains. “It’s good in sinks with a fixed faucet. If you can’t move the spout, the accordion style bellows let you flex the handle to the side and plunge effectively from an angle. You can’t do that with conventional plungers.”

The Bottom Line

Michael Williams thinks “every drain cleaning and plumbing professional” should carry a few VersaPlunge plungers for a range of stoppages.

He says that VersaPlunge helps clear clogs faster than old-fashioned plungers do – and keeps surroundings cleaner.

“With VersaPlunge, you’re not just getting a plunger – you’re getting the plunger!” he smiles. “VersaPlunge is like a plunger on steroids!”

It’s also easy to use with its built-in measuring guide and 13/16-inch, 1-5/8-inch or combo quick- change dies. It’s also TRISTAND® mountable. With StrutSlayr, contractors get enhanced cut quality and safety—critical benefits on today’s jobsites.

“In the past, when contractors were working with strut in the field, they have either had to make cuts with tools not designed for strut or make additional trips to the fab shop for more cut strut. Either way, pros had to choose between quality cuts or getting the job done quickly,” said Mitch Barton, Director of Marketing for Global Press Connections at RIDGID. “With RIDGID StrutSlayr, contractors get both quality and efficiency. They don’t have to sacrifice a thing.”

The Rodrunner® sectional drain cleaner from General Pipe Cleaners offers great features contractors like – light weight, high speed cable rotation, and short quick-coupling cables.

Best of all, General’s versatile machine can handle the toughest clogs in 3”-10” lines – as far as 200 feet away. And it can be used in almost any location!

In tight spots, Rodrunner can be placed close to the drain opening. The guide hose safely contains cable to prevent damage to people and property.

On jobs with working room, save your back! Simply slide the cable into the chuck – and lock the jaws into place. Then walk Rodrunner, “lawn-mover” fashion, towards the drain – one cable section at a time.

A heavy-duty 3/4 hp motor with capacitor and overload protection spins the cable at 700 rpm – the ideal speed for self-feeding cables into lines and protecting against sudden torque build-ups. For additional safety, Rodrunner includes an adjustable slip clutch.

Sectional cables snap together in seconds – and disassemble quickly with a coupling wrench or coupling key. The open cable coils automatically screw into lines, helping clear stubborn stoppages with less effort.

Cables are also available in a variety of lengths and connectors for General and competing brands. With the recently developed “G” connector, no torque is put on the locking pin when running the machine in reverse, making it a more durable coupling.

Reformulated Snake Oil Plus™ from General Pipe Cleaners offers enhanced protection of drain cleaning cables and machines – and can extend the life of your other equipment, as well.

It features the same rust-inhibiting properties and pleasant lemon scent of original Snake-Oil. But General’s improved non-toxic, eco-friendly, biodegradable formula also creates virtually non-stick surfaces – keeping mud and debris from sticking to cables, drums, and machines, significantly extending your drain cleaning equipment life.

Better than common lubricants, its special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture, replacing it with a rust-resistant coating. Bearings, feeds, and moving parts last longer. And its deodorizer keeps drain cleaning tools smelling fresh and clean.

Snake Oil Plus can also preserve and protect:

  • concrete & construction equipment,
  • paint & plumbing tools,
  • lawn & garden machinery,
  • and more

It’s easy to use on drain cleaning machines. Just pour a quantity of Snake-Oil Plus into the drum – and rotate the container to let the oil contact as much cable as possible. Then drain off the excess Snake-Oil Plus – and let the cable air-dry.

Snake-Oil Plus is available in either quart or gallon sizes. The quart size includes a sprayer to make it easier to apply just the right amount to all your other tools. The sprayer is optional on the gallon containers.
