Gen-Eye inspection camera saves big bucks It all started with a clogged sewer line at a Tulsa, Okla., residential property. The frantic renter immediately called a local plumber, who demanded $1,500 to dig up and repair the problem. But the landlord had other ideas, and instead contacted Chris Wade, owner of Precision Plumbing. For 20 years, Precision has jealously guarded an outstanding reputation for professionalism, dependability and honesty throughout Tulsa’s metro area. “We’re not fly-by-night, ‘schoolhouse’ plumbers,” Wade says. “We get 100% of our business by word of mouth. So our six crews always make superior service and customer satisfaction our priorities.” That’s why Wade places a premium on the equipment Precision uses. “When you’re safeguarding a reputation for quality work, you choose tough, reliable tools for the job,” he adds. “And we only trust equipment from General Pipe Cleaners.” THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT MIX Using one of its Gen-Eye® video inspection systems, Wade’s crew instantly spots the true trouble – tree roots. Using a 4-in. Cutter on its Speedrooter® power drain cleaner with automatic feed from General, Precision’s pros quickly clear the line. “We saved the customer around $1,300 – and didn’t dig up a darn thing,” Wade says with a laugh. Gen-Eye® systems offer plumbing and drain cleaning professionals everything necessary to trouble-shoot 2” through 10” lines. For instance, the lightweight, popular “SD” family includes a larger 10.4-in. LCD screen, a built-in waterproof keyboard, an integral SD recorder and a heavy-duty Pelican case. General’s new Gen-Eye SDP® version also adds Wi-ficapability, a 4-hour rechargeable battery and a sunlight-readable screen. The self-leveling color camera automatically keeps the picture right-side-up as the camera glides though the line, making it easier for customers to follow the Action. Versatile, rugged Gen-Eye® SD systems also sport standard features such as an onscreen distance counter, date and time stamp, voiceover unit, camera test port, and DC power option. SUPERIOR ACCURACY AND VERSATILITY For matchless accuracy in tracking trouble, Precision Plumbing also counts on its new Hot Spot® Pipe Locator from General Pipe Cleaners. The easy-to-use Hot Spot offers durability and reliability. General’s pipe locator lets plumbing and drain-cleaning professionals precisely pinpoint problems – without unnecessarily digging up costly pavement or expensive landscaping to find breaks or blockages. Superb for all commercial and residential needs, the versatile Hot Spot eliminates guesswork when inspecting and tracing sewer and drain lines, septic tanks, active power lines and buried utilities. “It saves us so much time on water lines, gas lines, power lines – you name it,” Wade states. “It’s always right — dead on the nose — and still works with our older Gen-Eye equipment.” Common workplace abuse can’t compromise General’s tough tool, either. Hot Spot also offers superior battery life – more than twice that of competitive locators. The automatic shutdown feature saves power. And the USB port lets users upgrade software or grab screen captures. DRAIN-CLEANING POWER FOR ALL TASKS Once they locate blockages, Precision’s pros count on reliable drain-cleaning machines from General. Great for long, tough jobs, the latest Speedrooter 92® blends rugged reliability with optimal control and ease of use. The field-proven machine, ideal on tree roots, features a braced frame at key stress points, drum design for longer bearing wear and Flexicore® cable – the industry standard for toughness. Heavy-duty Flexicore cable blends superior strength and kinking resistance with just the right flexibility. It carries the best warranty in the business – one-year protection against breakage. Precision Plumbing’s equipment array also includes General standards such as the Mini- Rooter® and Super-Vee® cable drain cleaners. Easy to transport and maintain, Mini-Rooter unclogs drains from rooftop to basement – including kitchen, bath and laundry lines. It carries 75 ft. Of 3/8-in. Or 1/2-in. Flexicore cable – yet weighs around 60 lb. The handheld Super-Vee easily unclogs sink, shower, toilet and laundry drain lines up to 3 in. Diameter. With a dependable motor, durable aluminum drum and tough Flexicore cable, it withstands the most demanding small-line jobs – and keeps working year after year. CONSUMER SERVICE BOOSTS BOTTOM LINE Wade learned his trade – and personal ethics – from his dad, also a plumber. “I refuse to let unreliable equipment leave us in bad spots,” he concludes. “Your reputation stays with you – and you don’t want to mar that.” That’s why he trusts General. “It’s great equipment. I won’t buy anything else!” For more information, contact the Drain Brains® at General Pipe Cleaners at 800/245-6200 or 412/771- 6300, or visit www.drainbrain.com/geneye.
