Sickening stench had overpowered the San Bernadino outlet for a major California supermarket chain.
For years, employees dumped dairy products down the drains of two floor sinks in the store’s milk department. But after local health officials ordered removal of the basins, coagulated organic debris clogged the line, and a putrid stink of decay soon overwhelmed the store. Something had to be done — fast.
That’s when store managers called drain cleaning professional Howard Baron, owner of local Village Plumbing.
“There were no clean-outs, the vent was inaccessible, and the line was too flat,” he recalls. The danger of a “huge mess” during business hours also prevented Village Plumbing from pumping the line or using water jets.
So Baron reached for his Kinetic Water Ram™ from General Pipe Cleaners. “I never used it before — and the store was really desperate!” he chuckles. “But I just read the package instructions, and it worked: It’s really easy to operate.”
Baron simply pumped his Water Ram to the desired pressure. Then he firmly positioned the flexible cone over the drain opening and snapped the trigger. The second try instantly cleared the clog.
The Water Ram unleashes a powerful burst of compressed air that hammers through water — instantly breaking up the stoppage. It easily clears clogs from lines up to 4″ in diameter.
The shock wave bypasses stacks and vents, so there’s no pressure build-up. The General’s device directs 98% of the force down the line and only 2% against pipe walls. So the RAM effectively handles stoppages on the far side of drum traps or series of tight bends.
“Our Water Ram has proven fantastic for emergencies,” Baron says.
The quick, clean performance of Kinetic Water Ram enhances Village Plumbing’s professional reputation. “It gets you through bad situations — fast,” Baron notes. “Our customers really like that!”
