JM-3080 Water Jet from General Pipe Cleaners Solves a Dam Tough Problem

Jet-Set

Blockage of a critical 5-inch overflow pipe beneath a large, artificial lake at Dospat Dam, Bulgaria, posed extreme danger to dam wall integrity — risking catastrophic failure.

Over 50 years of hardened sediment and debris had accumulated. Drainage was reduced to a trickle. Construction of a new removal conduit proved unfeasible.

The remote setting also eliminated heavy cleaning equipment from consideration, and the 460-foot line descended over a 2.5-percent grade from 157 feet beneath the dam wall through four tight bends to its terminus, rendering clearout extremely difficult.

That’s when Double D Engineering Ltd., European specialists in industrial cleaning technologies and services, stepped in with an outside-the-box idea.

“Economics and facility condition forced us to work with the existing pipeline,” Dimiter Dimitrov, company manager, noted. “So, we opted for a compact, portable water jet solution.”

General’s Innovative Kinetic Water Ram Gives Plumber the Competitive Edge

A clogged kitchen sink at a church prompted a routine call for drain cleaning help.

That’s when local plumbing professional Sylvan Tieger rode to the rescue – with something different.

With nearly five decades as a plumber, including three years of US Navy service, Tieger offers a full range of plumbing, drain cleaning, fire suppression and emergency services to the New York City area’s commercial, residential and institutional markets.

He also prides himself on getting to the root of his customers’ problems. And he quickly discovered more serious trouble – the total stoppage of a 4-inch stack.

“The 4-inch soil line was blocked below the church’s kitchen sink on the main floor,” Tieger recalled. “So, the sink was receiving discharges from five floors above.”

That allowed waste to fill the sink every time a fixture above was used. “It looked like a soft stoppage, and a cable machine probably wouldn’t have worked,” he added. “That’s when I decided to test the power of my Kinetic Water Ram.”

The lightweight, compact Kinetic Water Ram™ safely, quickly and cleanly clears clogged sinks, toilets and tubs with the power of compressed air.

But when he first saw it, President Alain Breton branded the chrome plated device a “gadget.” “It looked like a science-fiction ray gun,” he recalls. “We never saw anything like it.”

Impressed by the reliability, durability and performance of all his other General equipment, Breton relented. “We always test drive equipment before purchasing,” he says. “So our distributor let us borrow one for our next couple jobs.”
