Uses and benefits
All of Picote's new and redesigned tools make the installing process easier, faster and more efficient. The tools are simple, light-weight and have good ergonomics.
  • The Picote Welding Rig revolutionises Sliplining. Only use what you need. Picote Flexi-Pipe can be cut to size and also comes in 6m (19.6ft) lengths which can be easily welded together using couplings. Easy to transport and store.
  • The Pipe Cutter is used to trim the pipe to correct profile to commence welding.
  • The Welding Ball is used to prevent the weld migrating to inside of pipe during the welding process.
  • The Picote Upper Pipe Guide directs the flexible liner pipe from ground level to existing manhole chamber.
  • The Picote Lower Pipe Guide changes the direction from down the manhole chamber through the invert and into the host pipe that is being sliplined.


Technical spec



How to use

As with all sliplining systems there is a slight loss of inner diameter once the installation is completed, which does not affect flow. The ring stiffness class of the pipe is SN8 (DN 270 Flexi-Pipe is SN4). Whilst an ideal solution for main line sewers, in the diameter range, the system is also particularly applicable to the rehabilitation of house connections.
