Make Money Fast Thawing Frozen Pipes

When the weather turns really cold, pipe thawing season turns red hot!  When the inevitable flood of service calls for frozen pipes comes, be sure you have a pipe thawing machine on hand. No matter how well homeowners think they have their pipes insulated, we all know that when the arctic blast hits, pipes are going to freeze. And then the homeowners call you.

Don’t risk burning down the house with a blow torch. And don’t wait for hours for a space heater to thaw the pipes. Instead, use General’s Hot-Shot™ Pipe Thawing Machine. 

With the Hot-Shot, all you need to do is plug into a 115 volt outlet and clamp the cables on either side of the frozen section of pipe.  The pipe thawing machine sends low voltage (about 5 volts) but high amperage current (between 300 and 400 amps) though the metal pipe. It’s safe to touch, and doesn’t get the pipe red hot so there’s no danger of fire. Instead, it heats the pipe just a few degrees above freezing. Once the outer layer of water thaws, water pressure melts the rest. In minutes the water will be flowing again.

The Hot-Shot 320, weighing in at just 30 lbs., generates 320 amps of thawing power, yet draws just 14 amps. This little unit can quickly thaw 1-1/2″ diameter lines up to 100 ft. long. The Hot-Shot 400 clears longer and larger lines with 400 amps of power. It’s powerful enough to clear1-1/2″ diameter lines up to 175 feet long, yet weighs just 31 lbs.

No more tearing up floors, breaking through walls, or digging up pipes in frozen ground!

With the safe Hot-Shot pipe thawer, you can accomplish the job faster and easier – and save time and money.
