The Cold-Shot Pipe Freezing Tool is a product that has proven to be a time and money-saving solution for plumbers like AlphaPlumbingpiping&Heating, a plumbing firm based in Brooklyn, New York.
This year AlphaPlumbingpiping&Heating encountered a repair problem in one apartment building in Bushwick that we manage. We realized that the shut-off valves for the bathroom sink and kitchen were not working at all. As a plumber who values prompt and professional service, we were concerned about the delay in getting the water shut off by the building managers.
To avoid further delays, we decided to use the Cold-Shot Pipe Freezing Kit. This innovative tool eliminates the need to drain water lines, sprinkler systems, or hot-water systems before cutting pipes or tubing. It uses carbon dioxide in dip tube-type cylinders to freeze liquids in various types of pipes, ranging from 1/8 inch to 2 inches in diameter, including steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum, and plastic pipes.
With the Cold-Shot keeping the system fully pressurized, we were able to replace all the valves in under 30 minutes without closing the main water supply or draining any lines. We simply placed the freeze head around the pipe, attached the hose, and opened the cylinder valve. The liquid carbon dioxide flowed into the freeze heads, forming dry ice at a temperature of -110 degrees F, which effectively froze the pipe without causing any damage.
The Cold-Shot Pipe Freezing Kit comes with 10 sets of freeze heads, high-pressure spiral hoses with injectors, a T-distributor, locking nut, hex head screwdriver, rubber gloves, goggles, and a carrying case. Management found that using Cold-Shot not only saved him time but also saved his company money. We estimated that without the tool, conventional valve repair charges would have been expensive and time-consuming; therefore, by adding Cold-Shot to our list of services, we make everyone happy in the building.
Management was impressed with the speed and efficiency of the job with the help of the Cold-Shot tool, which allowed us to perform spot repairs without disrupting the water supply in the entire building.
A month later after experiencing success with the Cold-Shot Pipe Freezing Kit, Management also encountered problems with faulty water main valves, and he was able to efficiently and safely handle those repairs using the tool as well.
Impressed with the performance of the Cold-Shot, Management wrote a testimonial to our company expressing their gratitude. We will continue to rely on the Cold-Shot kit for all company’s repair needs and attests to its durability and effectiveness.
