Snake-Oil Classic from General Pipe Cleaners Preserves & Protects Cables & Equipment


Savvy professionals call it the dependable way to preserve and protect sewer cables from rust. Now original Snake-Oil from General Pipe Cleaners is back!

Now called Snake-Oil Classic, it’s better than common lubricants. General’s special rust inhibitor cuts through moisture – and replaces it with a rust resistant coating.

Sewer cables and machines – including drums, bearings and power cable feeds – enjoy significantly extended life. And General’s deodorant gives everything a fresh, clean smell.

It’s easy to use, too. Just pour a quantity of Snake-Oil Classic into your machine’s cable drum – and rotate the container, letting the oil contact as much of the cable as possible. Then drain off excess Snake-Oil Classic – and allow the cable to air-dry.

Snake-Oil Classic joins Snake-Oil Plus, General’s new non-toxic, biodegradable addition to its Snake-Oil family. Snake-Oil Plus creates a virtually non-stick surface that keeps mud and debris from adhering to cables and equipment – extending the life of both.

Snake-Oil Classic is available in either quarts or gallons (New part # SOC-Q or SOC-G.)
