Plumb­ing made eas­ier

The Covington News - - Showcase Of Homes -

Many home­own­ers re­al­ize the ad­van­tage to hav­ing some plumb­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Know­ing your way around a pipe can save money and head­off emer­gency calls when some­thing goes awry. Hav­ing tools on hand that make the job eas­ier can be a dou­ble­bonus.

Now do-it-your­self plumbers can for­get banged knuck­les and wasted ef­fort cut­ting cop­per tub­ing in re­ally cramped ar­eas. An in­no­va­tive ratchet-ac­tion tool called Au­toCutTM quickly and cleanly slices pipe in snug spots — even in sites with less than one inch of wall clear­ance.

The light­weight, com­pact de­vice com­fort­ably fits in the palm of a hand. Just snap it onto the tube, close the gate and turn. The hard­ened steel cut­ting wheel au­to­mat­i­cally tight­ens with each twist — for true “one-hand” op­er­a­tion. And be­cause the spring-loaded cut­ting wheel pro­vides con­stant pres­sure, crimp dam­age is also elim­i­nated.

Ideal for both pro­fes­sional plumbers and “ week­end war­riors,” the break­through de­sign from Gen­eral Pipe Clean­ers com­pletely elim­i­nates the ex­ces­sive swing room, awk­ward ad­just­ing knobs and clumsy ma­neu­ver­ing of bulky, old-fash­ioned cop­per-tube cut­ters.

Avail­able in 1/ 2- inch, 3/4-inch and 1-inch mod­els, Au­toCut sports a rugged cas­ing for en­hanced dura­bil­ity. And in spots with re­stricted room around pipes for nor­mal hand op­er­a­tion, sim­ply use the op­tional ratchet turn­ing han­dle for ex­tra lever­age.

The Au­toCut is avail­able at area hard­ware stores and home cen­ters. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­sumers can visit www.drain­
