Just one of the tools in out arsenal is the Picote Smart Spider. The Smart Spider is a highly efficient tool for descaling pipes and is very effective when it comes to pipes which are damaged or where there may be holes in the pipe.

The Smart Spider easily navigates 90° bends and is even safe to use in PVC pipes.
