A perfect lining process doesn’t always happen everytime. Sometimes a liner could fail, or it could collapse. It could cure, but not in the position you wanted it to.
The good thing is that it can still be mended and repaired. Contractors are now able to remove collapsed liners quickly and with better efficiency, thanks to helpful Picote tools that were made specifically for these types of difficult tasks.
Carrying out the perfect lining process isn’t always an easy affair. Sometimes challenges come along and cause headaches for both drain cleaning contractor and homeowners alike. Here are some sample occurrences:
- The resin was successfully brushed in the pipe but it looks like the liner wasn’t able to bond correctly. Now, the liner has collapsed and is now blocking the drain pipe.
- Household waste water has flooded the lower rooms of a residential property due to a collapsed liner.
- Drain cleaning contractors try to solve the problem and remove the liner using a variety of unproven methods such as chiseling in along the pipe’s length. This makes fixing the collapsed liner a more challenging process.
Our PrimeLine Products, in line with Picote partnership ensure only the best tools are available for you on any lateral lining project you may have. Liner wrinkles, collapsed pipe sections and long lining can now be remedied in a much faster manner.

Change the front head to get the best results. The Front Drill Head can eliminate stubborn wrinkles while the Smart Crusher Head can be utilized to fix collapsed sections found in the middle area of the pipe.
Use the Smart Sweeper in conjunction with the Maxi Miller exclusively.
