An Insight from the CEO:
I’ve spent years cleaning my own pipes, and like everyone else who’s tried, I’ve had mixed results. Between not ever getting my pipes as clean as new, and sometimes having tasted the soapy residues left behind—then having to deal with the mess—I knew there had to be a better way.
Working with my mentors and the unending patience of my wife Holly, we created, modified, improved and perfected what is now an integrated system to clean pipes correctly. It required extensive testing of solution formulae until it was exactly right, and fine tuning of the system that provides the cleaning action.
Now we’re ready to bring its benefits to smokers everywhere, for their favorite piece or for that drawer full of pieces we all have hidden away.
