Cast iron pipes can be cleaned with Original and Premium chains, but PVC pipes require a different approach. In PVC and fragile pipes, great care must be taken; Picote recommends reaching out for advice from its product specialists. If appropriate, use PVC Original Chains and the correct size of special drill head (with CCTV in every case).

Picote offers a wide range of unique tools — including cleaning chains and special drill heads — that can be used for cutting through blockages, scale, tuberculation, tree roots and wipes in all types of pipes. Of course, it’s important to select the correct tools for the job.

In some 3- to 6-inch pipes, a special drill head and an Original Chain combined on a 1/2-inch leader with the Super Midi Miller or Maxi Miller can drive through compacted wipes and disperse them. The chain is designed to center the drill head inside the pipe. 

Cast iron pipes can be further cleaned with Original and Premium chains, but PVC pipes require a different approach. In PVC and fragile pipes, great care must be taken; Picote recommends reaching out for advice from its employees if you are unsure. If appropriate, use PVC Original Chains and the correct size of special drill head (with CCTV in every case).

Picote recommends positioning the tool close to the blockage before starting the rotation, beginning on a lower speed setting and monitoring with the camera at each stage. Picote chains or the Smart Cutter can then be used to clean and descale the pipe to help prevent future buildup — and get the job done!
