General Pipe Cleaners, a division of General Wire Spring Co., is a leading manufacturer of high quality American-made drain cleaning equipment. In business since 1930, our third generation family-owned company is celebrating 85 years of service to drain cleaning professionals and plumbing contractors, as well as facilities managers, the rental industry and the hardware/home center market.
Reliability and innovation forged General’s reputation for generations of customers. We are continually introducing innovative new products – like the ClogChopper® cutter and easy-to-use Hot Spot® pipe locator. And these join our trusted industry standards – like the long lasting Super-Vee®, best selling Speedrooter 92®, and unique Kinetic Water Ram™ drain cleaners.
Automatic cable feeds followed, offering operators enhanced productivity and profitability. And later Jet-Set® water jets – with Vibra-Pulse® for greater nozzle thrust around tight bends and down long lines – gave professionals vital weapons against grease, sediment, ice and other soft blockages.
Twenty-first century technologies let professionals see and diagnose blockages – before actually clearing clogs. Gen-Eye® video inspection systems pioneered Digital Locators – like today’s super-easy Hot Spot® – for precise problem spotting. And Gen-Ear™ introduced easier and more economical water leak location.
