The Drain Cleaner’s Holiday Gift Guide

With all the cooking and subsequent grease clogs, there’s no better time than the holidays to show the plumber in your life how much you care. And we’d like to help with the “Drain Cleaner’s Holiday Gift Guide.” These gifts might not fit in a stocking, but they will be sure to fill any drain cleaning and plumbing professional with cheer. Plus, who wants to deal with all that crazy mall traffic?

The newest technologies and shiny new toys top everyone’s wish lists, and drain cleaning pros are no exception. Here are six ideas … that no one will mind if you don’t wrap.


Unlike traditional plungers, General’s VersaPlunge features a patented VerseFlange at the end of it that creates a tight seal and prevents splashback. A built-in relief valve in the handle lets you easily purge the air from the cone before thrusting. Other features include an easy grip handle for more control and accordion-style bellows that make it easier to apply extra force to clear the stoppage.

JM-1000 Mini-Jet

JM-1000 Mini-Jet weighs just 23 pounds, yet it clears grease, sand and ice with 1,500 psi of power. General now offers high-performance stainless steel hoses for its JM-1000. Available in 30-foot and 50-foot lengths, these flexible hoses feature a stainless steel braid and Teflon core for enhanced cleaning power.

Gen-Eye X-POD

The Gen-Eye X-POD features a powerful new command module with USB port to record video inspections on flash drives. Always easy on your back and your budget, the lightweight X-POD combines camera, reel and monitor into one compact package.

Sewerooter T-4

Need a mid-size machine with muscle? Check out the new Sewerooter T-4. It does a better job of clearing inside drainlines up to 100 feet long with tough 9/16-inch Flexicore cable. The T-4 also has stair climbers and a folding handle so you can easily move it around from job to job.

Kinetic Water Ram

This compact, lightweight tool clears clogged sinks, toilets and tubs fast. It can handle rust, grease, sediment and scale in lines up to 4 inches. The Kinetic Water Ram uses a burst of compressed air that drives a shock wave (kinetic energy) through water to break up stoppage. It’s particularly useful when the stoppage is on the far side of a drum trap or series of tight bends, since the shock wave can travel around bends without losing its force.


This multifunction cutting tool will rip through tough stoppages. Its six self-sharpening blades dig into debris and root masses as well as grind up the worst stoppages without damaging pipes.

They can’t do much about a bearded fat man stuck in a chimney, but these tools are well-equipped to clear clogs in most other scenarios. Regardless of what Santa brings this year, General Pipe Cleaners wishes you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season.
