Thawing Frozen Pipes Faster

Company News
Almanacs say we’re in for a tough, cold winter. And that means frozen pipes.


Almanacs say we’re in for a tough, cold winter. And that means frozen pipes. 


Be prepared withGeneral Pipe Cleaners’ Hot-Shot 320® and Hot-Shot 400® pipe thawing machines. They thaw pipes in minutes without tearing up floors, breaking through walls, or digging around pipes in frozen ground! 


The Hot-Shot 320 generates 320 amps of thawing power to thaw up to 100 ft. of 1-1/2" pipe – yet weighs just 30 lbs. With dual level output and 400 amps of thawing power, the powerful Hot-Shot 400 can thaw frozen lines up to 175 ft. long in 1-1/2" diameter lines. And if you're stuck on a job with only a 15 amp breaker, you can switch the Hot-Shot 400 down to 320 amps – and pull just 14 amps. 


They're easy to use too. Just attach the pipe clamps to the frozen pipe section – and plug the machine into any convenient 115 volt receptacle. In a few minutes, the frozen pipe is thawed out. Both machines are compact, feature a heavy gauge steel case, and carry a two year warranty.
