The Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool is designed to temporarily stop the flow of water from a fire sprinkler. We highly recommend having this tool on hand in facilities with emergency fire sprinklers. The Talon Fire Sprinkler Tool is a must-have for hotels, classrooms, and commercial buildings.
It can take a long time to shut off the water, especially in larger facilities. Having this tool on hand can save a building from costly water damage. If you want your facility to have the tool it needs to shut off an emergency fire sprinkler, this is the tool you need. It’s reusable, adjustable, and easy to use.
How does the Quickstop Talon Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool work?
The upper arm slides around the threaded area of the fire sprinkler. The lower arm has a round rubber gasket that seals the opening of the sprinkler head. The gasket fits over the entire opening of the sprinkler which stops the flow of water. The Quickstop Talon is designed to stay out of the direct flow of water so it should be easy to attach to the sprinkler. Then you simply squeeze the clamp to put the tool in place.
On the back of the tool, there is an adjustable screw and nut that can be raised or lowered, enabling the Fire Sprinkler Shut-Off tool to fit various fire sprinkler sizes. Every unit comes preset with the correct settings for the standard fire sprinkler size. There is also a red ‘quick release’ arm that enables the user to release the tool from a sprinkler system with one hand. Inside is a black rubber piece that when heated, expands and causes the tool to release the pressure, which allows the tool to function as a temporary sprinkler in the event of a second fire.
It is made of zinc and chrome plated steel, which protects the tool against rust. The Quickstop Talon has been tested to be 100% water tight up to 350 pounds per square inch (PSI).
Plumbing Fact: According to the International Plumbing Code, a building with water pressure that exceeds 80 PSI requires a pressure reducing valve. This means that this fire sprinkler tool is functional well over the maximum water flow rate.
What Types of Fire Sprinklers does it work on?
• Conventional Fire Sprinklers
• Upright Fire Sprinklers
• Pendant Fire Sprinklers
• Horizontal Sidewall Fire Sprinklers
• Vertical Sidewall Fire Sprinklers
• Recessed Pendent Fire Sprinklers
This tool works on 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch fire sprinkler heads. Not only does this tool work for various sprinkler head sizes, but it also works on damaged and sheared units as well. The dimensions of the tool are 8 in × 3 in × 2 in.
Share the Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool PDF with your facility director, maintenance team, or purchasing department to keep your facility prepared in case an activated fire sprinkler needs to be turned off.
How would you like to service your drinking fountain without disassembling the unit? With Murdock water coolers, you can! 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.

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.

The ClogChopper™ from General Pipe Cleanersis 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!
The ClogChopper drain cleaning tool is available in many different sizes. We have the following sizes available on our website, and can get other sizes for our customers:
• 1″ ClogChopper – for 5/16″ and 3/8″ cables. Part #36505 (Part #36505R for Ridgid snakes)

• 4″ ClogChopper – for 5/8″ and 3/4″ cables. Part #37740

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.
The Benefits of Oxygenics Shower Heads make them a no-brainer for all situations, in both residential and commercial applications. These high-performance showerheads are water efficient and also improve user shower experience.
• Supercharging Water with oxygen gets the absolute most out of each drop, making the most efficient use of available resources.
• Adding Oxygen to water is like filling up a balloon with air. It makes the water droplets expand so they come out of the shower heads larger and wider, covering more of you when you shower.
• The Mixture of oxygen and water that occurs in an Oxygenics shower head creates an effect like a jet engine, blasting away dirt and odor with incredible strength.
• Anti-Clog properties like Delrin nonstick internal components and the single flow design helps stop clogs like calcium build up from occurring, a common problem in areas with hard, mineral-rich water.
New Showerhead Technology Delivers Power AND Efficiency
Oxygenics showerheads bring you great water pressure while saving water at the same time. They use only 1.5 gallons of water per minute, a whopping 1 GPM less than the maximum the US government mandates (2.5 GPM). Oxygenics showerheads do this without sacrificing pressure. Here’s how:
The Oxygenics Engine: It’s what drives these shower heads. Originally developed in 1981, it has been perfected over three decades to make the most of the available water resources and give you a powerful, water saving shower experience at any pressure.
1.Pressure Chamber: Water is introduced into a pressure chamber that works like a mini-turbine jet, increasing water velocity.
2. Air Vacuum: Water passes through an air vacuum at high speed, infusing oxygen into each drop.
3. Spray Head: The pressurized combination of water and oxygen is released through an expanding nozzle, widening coverage and greatly increasing water power.

Congratulations to Pittsburgh International Airport for being the very first United States airport to be named Airport of the Year by Air Transport World Magazine! We are thrilled to have such a first-class facility in Pittsburgh, and we are proud to have contributed to their success by providing them with modern plumbing fixtures and upgraded drinking water solutions.
Equiparts has facilitated many updates to the Pittsburgh International Airport to increase traveler comfort and improve airport ambiance. Major updates included selecting and procuring new drinking fountains, bottle filler units, and new restroom fixtures. With support from our vendors such as Sloan and Elkay, we helped the airport choose the best solutions for their facility.
One of our knowledgeable representatives, Joe Ferraro, worked directly with the head of plumbing, as well as other key maintenance personnel at PIT Airport to implement these upgrades. As an outside sales rep at Equiparts, Joe frequently works with our Pittsburgh area customers on site to provide hands-on support. Joe continues to work with the maintenance department at PIT airport as a knowledgeable source for all of their plumbing and maintenance needs.
Additional Drinking Fountains and Bottle Filling Stations
Patrons of the airport cannot bring opened containers through checkpoint locations. That is one of the reasons why it is important that an airport has water coolers placed directly before and after security checkpoints, as well as throughout the airport, to make drinking water easily accessible. So far, Equiparts has added over 30 new water coolers throughout the airport. We have also added over a dozen bottle filler water cooler units to the Airside concourses where the majority of the shops and restaurants are located. The water cooler and bottle filler units we supplied are made by Elkay Manufacturing. These stainless steel units include the Vandal Resistant Bi-Level Water Cooler and EZH2O Bottle Filling Stations (View on our website). These multi-level units accommodate children and adults and allow two people to drink simultaneously, which is ideal for an airport, given the heavy traffic and the need for ADA compliance.
Joe used his experience and expertise to help Airport personnel select the best new fixtures for the airport’s needs. Fixtures such as new faucets, flush valves, urinals, as well as American Standard sinks and soap dispensers were provided to upgrade the airport’s restrooms. Most of the new units chosen for these updates were from Sloan, for which Equiparts is a master distributor. PIT Airport updated their restrooms with top of the line Royal flushometers for urinals and closets, as well as electronic sensor faucets. All of these fixtures provide the highest quality in terms of functionality, appearance, and longevity.
The PIT International Airport is constantly striving to improve the user experience for all of its travelers. We will be there to support them in any way we can, as their #1 source for plumbing and maintenance repair parts and fixtures!
