Snakes in the Bathroom!

Imagine this: You walk into the restroom only to find a snake peeking its head out of the toilet! That’s what happened at a commercial office building recently. Luckily for the building owner, they called James Capelli, a plumbing contractor, and his Gen-Eye™ video inspection equipment.

“My Gen-Eye camera has spotted trouble in sewer lines many time before—diapers, cell phones, toys—you name it,” said Capelli. “But a boa constrictor tops them all!” The snake somehow migrated to the women’s restroom—“It kept poking its head up through toilets—and scaring all the ladies!”

Gen-Eye POD


With our Gen-Eye video pipe inspection system, Capelli was able to locate the exact spot the snake was in and remove it from the bathroom drain. The company was so grateful for Capelli’s quick work, they keep asking him back for more. He has also continued to grow his business as a valued General customer—he now owns a Gen-Eye POD™, an integral video inspection system that combines a mini color camera, reel, and monitor into an easy-to-transport and all-in-one package.

How well does the Gen-Eye POD™ work? Ask a happy customer himself! “It’s really rugged and reliable,” Capelli said. “I use it at least two or three times a week.”

“In tight spots, I can easily adjust the monitor for others to see what I’m doing,” he continued. “Customers don’t risk injury by getting too close to the action. And the sunshade makes viewing easier on outdoor jobs.”

So, before you find a surprise in your drain, take the advice of one of our successful customers when choosing your next drain cleaning tool. “General drain cleaning and pipe inspection tools have always been reliable – and exceeded expectations,” James said. “They’re the best out there!”
