Protective Sleeve Without Flexible Shaft

Made from a special blend of PEX to withstand heat and provide chemical resistance.

Protective sleeve to use with your flexi shaft for drain cleaning, blockage removal, drain descaling and tree roots in pipes


The protective sleeve allows you to hold the flexible shaft whilst it is rotating. It is made from a special blend of PEX to withstand heat and provide chemical resistance. This is not an ordinary PEX pipe. Ordinarily PEX pipe will quickly melt when exposed to high temperature and the chemicals found in a sewer.

We make these protective sleeves with weight and rigidity in mind. A light weight sleeve allows you to get better reach into a line, and is more efficient when you have to work vertically against gravity. The flexibility of the shaft plays an important role when navigating through junctions. The correct blend of rigidity and flexibility makes our protective sleeves the perfect tool for cleaning pipes, and removing blockages.

Use in combination with our sleeve friction rings to prevent dirt from getting between the flex shaft and the sleeve. This gives the sleeve longevity and improves the performance of your shaft.
