How to use

Navigating 90° bends and diameter transitions effortlessly, it accurately opens and shapes lateral CIPP connections without accidental damage to the original pipe. It has successfully reinstated hundreds of thousands of connections inside cast iron, concrete, clay, and plastic pipes.

It is also a fantastic tool for removing roots, scale, CIPP fins, resin slugs, preparing pipes for brush coating, and removing failed CIPP linings - even in fragile pipes.
