In this article, you will learn about what differentiates Murdock water coolers from other water cooler brands, how easy it is to service Murdock Maintenance Advantage Water Coolers, the different options now available, and why you should order your Murdock units from Equiparts. We also have an informative video of Bob Murdock during his most recent visit at Equiparts that shows you how easy it is to service Murdock units.

Why Choose Murdock Manufacturing Fountains

Easy to Maintain

Murdock water coolers are designed to make life easier for the maintenance people who service them. The simple configuration of their drinking fountains, water coolers, and bottle fillers allows for easy access to the parts that need attention most often. In addition, there are less moving parts to potentially repair, making maintenance calls less frequent. For example, instead of three push buttons on a water cooler, Murdock fountains have only one.

Service tasks like turning off the water, cleaning the strainer, changing the filter, adjusting water stream height, and replacing the cartridge can be completed easily and without disassembling the unit. See how easy it is to complete these tasks on a popular Murdock Water Cooler model in the video below.


Many Murdock units that were installed over a century ago are still fully functional today. They are a testament to the high-quality craftsmanship and durability of Murdock units.

Murdock offers lots of customization options. They can add your logo or mascot onto your fountain, cooler, or bottle filler as a vinyl sticker. They can also leave an area of your unit uncovered during powder coating which will leave the shape of your logo or mascot in stainless steel on your unit.


Every Murdock unit is tested for leaks and other potential problems before it is approved for shipping. In many situations when a Murdock unit in the field needs repair, the company will send a service team to inspect the unit or units and perform any necessary repairs.

ClogChopper™ Drain Cleaning Tool

The ClogChopper™ from General Pipe Cleaners is a powerful drain cleaner that cuts through debris without damaging pipes. Unlike snakes or drain cleaning tool heads that go around tough clogs, the ClogChopper cuts right through them. Clogs caused by roots, scale, and crystallized urine are easily ground up and released by using this tool. The ClogChopper can safely be used in metal, plastic, & clay pipes.

How the ClogChopper™ Works

The ClogChopper has a spherical head with six self-sharpening blades that cut through a large variety of substances that clog a drain. As the snake spins, the blades work together to slice through blockages and safely scrape the walls of pipes to remove built up substances. One of the best features of the tool is that it is specifically designed to safely maneuver around bends and traps while maintaining a central line position. Maintaining that central line position greatly reduces the chance of damaging pipe walls, elbows, connections, and joints. The tool’s “all surface” cutting blades not only clear major blockages, but they also scrape the debris that is coated on the walls of the pipe. This helps stop more debris from collecting and causing another clogged pipe down the line.


The tool connects to the head of General Pipe and Ridgid drain cleaning machines. When in use, the tool glides smoothly through the pipe without rattling or jumping. It filters all debris into and out of the tool in one smooth operation. It attaches to the coupling of the snake, and works on everything from handheld snake tools to mini-rooters and maxi-rooters. The combination of the ClogChopper’s cutting power, smooth maneuverability, and safe wall scraping feature make this a much more effective tool than augers, spiral saws, spade cutters, or similar instruments.

*Order Tip: Standard models connect to General Pipe Products. If you need a ClogChopper that connects to Ridgid snakes or drain cleaning machines, be sure to note that when ordering so we give you the right model for your needs.) 

Rip Through Tough Stoppages with Ease!

General Pipe Cleaners manufacturers high-quality drain cleaning products and tools. All General Pipe Cleaner products are manufactured in the United States. Equiparts has a strong relationship with General Pipe Cleaners. We have been a distributor of their drain equipment for over 40 years. According to the manufacturer, since parts like cutters are subject to severe wear, they will be replaced or repaired  only if a flaw in the material causes the breakage, and if it’s within a year since the purchase.
