Q: What is the overall operating principle of the Kinetic Water Ram?
A: Unlike a drain cleaning snake and other drain cleaning equipment, the Water Ram uses a burst of compressed air, which strikes the column of water in a clogged drain. The resulting shock wave, called kinetic energy, hits the stoppage at a speed of approximately 4,700 feet per second, quickly clearing the blockage and flushing waste particles away.

Q: Will the Water Ram clear out partially plugged, "sluggish" pipes?
A: Yes. The Water Ram impact results not only in a clearing action, but in a cleaning action, as well. The Water Ram is highly effective in "clearing up" lines where drainage is slow due to partial clogging.
Q: Does the Water Ram work on all types of fixtures?
A: Yes, including urinals, toilets, wash basins, floor drains, sewers, fountains – up to 6' diameter pipes. The Water Ram can be used to service practically all clogged drains or pipes in any establishment.
Q: Has the Kinetic Water Ram been thoroughly field tested?
A: Yes. Our satisfied customers include:
|Fireman Creative||Clemson University||Delta Airlines|
|Embassy Suites||Federal Express||Ford|
|General Electric||General Motors||Goodyear|
|Hilton Hotels||Holiday Inn||J.C. Penney|
|Mariott Hotels||U.S. Army||U.S. Postal Service|
Q: Is the Water Ram impact effective around elbows or bends in pipe?
A: Yes. Remember that a water column, though solid, is perfectly flexible. Just as a dozen loops put in the oil line leading from a brake pedal on a car to the brake cylinder on the wheel would operate all the same, so the kinetic wave resulting from the Water Ram will travel through a 100 ft. coil as well as through a straight line. Fittings or connections need seldom, if ever, be disturbed.
Q: Is there any danger of damaged pipes or fixtures when the Water Ram is used?
A: None. 98% of the impact is forwarded against the obstruction. Only 2% of the impact is against pipe sidewalls.
Q: What is the life expectancy of the Water Ram?
A: The Water Ram is good for a lifetime. Charge and discharge is its only function, so there is relatively little or nothing to wear or get out of order.
Q: Is the Water Ram backed by a warranty?
A: Yes. The Kinetic Water Ram carries a one-year warranty against defect or breakage. Should any part break or fail to work properly in the year following purchase, it will be repaired or replaced at our discretion at no charge. We have been making this offer for over forty years and are proud of our list of satisfied customers. Click Here to view the Kinetic Water Ram Limited Warranty
