Pipe-Freezing Tool Saves Contractor Time and Money
ONE PARTICULAR repair problem got personal for Austin Montanti, owner of Montanti Mechanical, a commercial and residential renovation firm based on Staten Island, New York.
“I purchased an apartment on Staten Island for myself – and quickly realized that the shut-off valves for the kitchen and bathroom sinks didn’t work,” he says.
Time is money for guys like Montanti. “We insist on prompt, professional service. And over 10 years, we’ve built a pretty solid network of satisfied customers in the New York City area – with 100 percent of our business coming from word-of-mouth.”
That’s why he grew concerned when building managers wouldn’t quickly shut off apartment water. So facing an unacceptable delay of several more hours, Montanti acted fast – and “outside the box.”
Pipe freezing kit provides the solution
He grabbed his new Cold-Shot Pipe Freezing Kit from General Pipe Cleaners.
General’s innovative, time-saving tool eliminates the need to drain waterlines, sprinkler systems or hot water systems before cutting pipe or tubing.
Using carbon dioxide in dip tube-type cylinders, Cold-Shot quickly and safely freezes liquids in steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum and plastic pipes, 1/8 inch through 2 inches in diameter.
With Cold-Shot keeping the system fully pressurized, Montanti replaced all the valves in just 30 minutes – without closing the main supply or draining any lines before making repairs.
