Blocked Drain

Blocked Drains Perth

There’s nothing worse than blocked drains.  A blockage in your kitchen, bathroom or outdoor drains can not only be unhygienic but also a costly and disruptive experience.

We are experts in blocked drains, pipe relining and trenchless plumbing so you can rely on us to solve any drainage issue you might encounter. 

A blocked drain requires immediate attention, if not it could end up costing you a lot of money, so if you suspect you might have one it’s best to get onto it straight away.  Some signs you might have a blocked drain include:

  • Bad smell coming from your drains
  • A significant drop in your water pressure
  • A change in toilet water level (higher or lower)
  • Drains that are slow to drain
  • Strange gurgling noises

If you are experiencing any of the above issues it’s best to call a professional.  Here at Tunnel Vision we are on hand any time of the day or night to eliminate your drainage issue.

Clear Your Blocked Drain in 3 Easy Steps

  • 1

    Source & Locate the Problem

    There are many different reasons for blocked drains in the home or business which mostly depends on where in the property you have the drainage issue.  The most common causes of drain blockages can be:

    • Hair
    • Grease
    • Plants
    • Toiletries
    • Breakages

    We can determine the issue using our high tech CCTV drain cameras.  AT Tunnel Vision we use Mainline Tractor Cameras and Rigid Push Cameras to conduct drain inspections.  This gives us an understanding of what is causing the blockage so we can come up with the best strategy to unblock your drain.

    Clear the Blocked Drain

    Once we’ve discovered the root of the drainage problem we focus on unblocking and clearing the drain.  This can be done in a number of ways depending on the type of blockage.   

    The most effective way to release the blockage is to use a drain jetter. The high pressure hydrojetting equipment allows us to break up and blast out a blockage using high pressure and high velocity water. It’s certainly a mess free way to clear the blocked drain.

    If the blockage is caused by tree roots, after clearing we can return to use special equipment that sends a foaming solution down the pipes and inhibits the offending roots from growing back for a period of approx. 12 months, and it won’t hurt the tree or shrub.

    Our advanced and proven Hydrojetting technology includes:

    Jet Drain Cleaning - Equipment used for high pressure drain cleaning.

    Vaporooter - Equipment used for the safe application of inhibiting root growth using a foam. (Note: relining and drain rehabilitation does not harm trees or shrubs).

    With the blockage gone, the drain cameras are back. Our technician will conduct a drain inspection on the pipe that was blocked or damaged. We record a clear view and assessment to DVD. With the removal of the blockage we’ll be able to see if its damaged the pipes in any way.
