Apex CIPP Becomes A Picote Dealer and Certified Service Center 

Industry-Leading Pipe Rehab Machines & Tools Making A Splash At The WWETT Show 

Sarasota, FL: January 16, 2024 – Apex CIPP, a leader in pipe rehabilitation equipment, service, and training, announces they are now a Picote® dealer and certified service center. The company sells plumbing, pipelining, and drain cleaning tools throughout North America. 

“We have always wanted to carry Picote products,” says Craig Underwood, general manager of Apex CIPP. “We used and recommended Picote equipment long before we started selling it.” He goes on to explain that the Picote brand is highly regarded by pipe rehab contractors, especially for performing backend reinstatements. 

  • Pipe miller/cutting machines 
  • Drain cleaning tools & grabber attachments 
  • Smart, multi-function tools 
  • Failed liner or concrete removal 
  • Brush coating systems 
  • CIPP lining equipment 

“More often than not, there’s a Picote Miller on a trenchless pipe repair jobsite,” Walter McMillan estimates. He’s the training manager for Apex CIPP. “Picote is known for their milling machines that can do anything from drain cleaning to grabbing items lodged inside pipes. The value is in their versatility and durability.” The Millers are available in a range of sizes and power types, some having a rechargeable battery option.  

In addition to the milling machines, Picote products include a full catalog of pipe repair and maintenace tools. Apex CIPP will service and repair the equipment from their Sarasota, FL headquarters. They promise fast turnaround since they know the importance of keeping plumbing jobs on schedule. 

“Our Picote debut will be at The WWETT Show at The Indianapolis Convention Center January 25-27.” The WWETT Show is the world’s largest annual trade show for the wastewater industry, now valued at USD 295 billion. The show had over 12,000 participants in 2023. Apex will display Picote and other rehab equipment while showcasing digital and live product demonstrations. 

“We’re excited to see new and familiar faces at The WWETT Show,” states Underwood. “We’ll have demos of UV LED light curing and a hands-on station where attendees can try robotic pipe cutting.” 

The company ships nationwide from their online store and also accepts phone orders. They offer expert consultations and free training at their headquarters. Underwood suggests that those considering new equipment or having questions about their existing machines give them a call or visit them in booth #6340 during the WWETT Show. 

Apex CIPP is an independently owned and operated pipe repair equipment, materials and training company. They bring together some of the world’s finest industry products and place customer service as their first priority. To learn more visit or call 941-300-0441.
