“I don’t want competitors to know I use this tool. Some customers think I have super powers.”
That’s Omar Taylor talking about the lightweight, compact Kinetic Water Ram® from General Pipe Cleaners.
The innovative tool safely, quickly and cleanly clears clogged sinks and showers, toilets and tubs with Kinetic Energy. And it’s given the young, Indiana-based plumber a clear competitive edge.
Taylor comes from three generations of professionals. In business for over six years, he routinely subcontracts for a major national plumbing and drain cleaning company specializing in franchise services.
“Jobs that take guys an hour with cable machines, I do in just 5 minutes,” he says. “It’s like they say in the movie, ‘Who you gonna call?’ With my Kinetic Water Ram, I handle emergencies super quick!”
Fast, Clean Work
That’s why Taylor prefers General’s pioneering tool for rapidly clearing many common residential and commercial clogs. Call it his “secret identity”!
“I’ve earned a reputation for prompt, clean service with minimal disruption,” he says. “Most customers can’t believe how fast I handle their problems.”
Kinetic Water Ram unleashes a powerful burst of compressed air that drives a shock wave (kinetic energy) through water at 4,700 ft./second – instantly breaking up the stoppage. There’s no pressure build-up within the system, either. The shock wave bypasses stacks and vents. 98% of the force is directed down the line and only 2% against pipe walls.
The Kinetic Water Ram easily clears hair, rust, grease, sediment, and scale from lines from 1-1/4″ up to 4″ in diameter. It’s especially effective clearing slow draining tubs when the stoppage is on the far side of a drum trap – or through narrow lines in trailer homes that can be hard on a snake.
Taylor first learned of the Kinetic Water Ram when a training supervisor watched him struggle snaking the old trap of a clogged basement shower drain.
“After a while he said, ‘Let me show you how to really do it, son’,” Taylor recalls. “The supervisor got his Kinetic Water Ram, pumped it up, and immediately cleared the clog.”
That’s when Taylor became a true believer.
“The Kinetic Water Ram is perfect for all kinds of drain cleaning problems,” he claims. “It’s amazing on grease in kitchen sinks, hair and scum in bathtubs, and toilet paper and disposable wipes in commodes.”
An optional toilet attachment screws onto the front of the Kinetic Water Ram – permitting firmer positioning in the bowl and acting like a powerful plunger.
The Pro’s Favorite
And Omar Taylor’s not the only “true believer.”
“It takes longer to write-up the bill than to unclog a drain with that tool.” says Dale Smith, owner of D. Smith Plumbing Services in Jayess, Mississippi.
“When several people call you early in the morning or late at night, you can’t afford to spend 3 or 4 hours at each place,” Smith adds. “The Kinetic Water Ram lets me do multiple jobs daily – with time to spare.”
Dale Smith calls it “amazing” on bathtubs. “I’ve cleared hundreds – many with old-fashioned lever-actuated stoppers that prevent me from using a cable machine,” he notes. “Kinetic Water Ram handles them all.”
Compact Design Scores Points
Smith also values the tool’s portability.
“In the past, I’ve snaked through roof vents to clear clogs,” he says. That meant dragging a heavy, awkward cable machine to the roof. “Now I can handle most jobs with my lightweight Kinetic Water Ram.”
General’s tool comes standard with flexible cone seals from 1-1/4″ to 4″ in diameter, caulking hose, and five tapered valves for sealing openings from 1-1/4″ through 4”. A Schraeder valve for use with an external air compressor when clearing difficult blockages is also provided.
Boosting Professionalism & Productivity
“It’s super-simple to use,” Omar Taylor concludes.
Simply pump the Kinetic Water Ram to the desired pressure, plug overflows to prevent splash back, and firmly position the flexible cone over the drain opening. One snap of the trigger unleashes a powerful shock wave, instantly clearing clogs.
That’s especially important when customers see Taylor clearing clogged drains with such amazing speed and cleanliness.
“They think I’m a ‘Super Hero’ of Indiana plumbers,” Taylor jokes. “That’s why I like keeping my Kinetic Water Ram secret from competitors!”
