How Tunnel Vision Clears Blocked Drains
1. Identifying & Locating the Drainage Problem With Our CCTV Drain Cameras
There can be multiple reasons as to why you're experiencing drain blockages within your home or business. The most common causes of drain blockages are:
- Hair build-up
- Grease build-up in the drain
- Food scraps and cooking oil being disposed of down the drain
- Plants and tree roots entering the drain pipe
- Cat litter, baby wipes or toiletries are being flushed down the toilet
- Pipe breakages
Before we are able to clear blocked drains, we need to first determine the location and diagnose the cause of the drain blockage.
Our state-of-the-art, multi-directional camera equipment provides us with real-time visual data so we can identify plumbing issues with greater accuracy.
Tunnel Vision's CCTV drain cameras greatly streamline the inspection process, resulting in time and cost savings for our residential and commercial customers.
2. Clearing the Blocked Drain With Our Drain Jetting Equipment
Once the root cause of exactly what is causing your clogged drain has been identified, Tunnel Vision will begin focusing on unblocking and cleaning the drain.
Whilst more traditional DIY methods such as a drain auger, caustic cleaners, boiling water, and baking soda and vinegar can help dislodge a loose blockage, nothing can clear drains quite as effectively as Tunnel Visions' high-pressure water jetters.
Using high-velocity water, our hydro-jetting equipment allows us to break up and blast out even the most severe blockages. Tunnel Vision's drain cleaning services are quick and non-invasive, meaning that we pass the savings that you would normally pay for costly excavation work on to you.
If we identify that the blockage is caused by tree root ingress, Tunnel Vision can utilise RootX, a chemical foam treatment that can control fibrous root systems to inhibit the return of root growth for approximately 12 months. RootX is a non-caustic and non-fumigating aquatic herbicide, meaning that it won't harm the tree and has minimal impact on the environment.
With the drain unblocked, Tunnel Vision will then conduct a second drain inspection by inserting our advanced CCTV drain cameras through the drain opening in order to assess the now cleared pipe for any additional plumbing problems, damage or debris.
3. Repairing Any Drainage Problems Caused by the Blockage
If we identify that your pipes are damaged whilst unblocking your drains, don't panic!
Tunnel Vision has partnered with Nuflow Australia to deliver Western Australia with a trenchless, no-dig solution to pipe repairs. Nuflow is an environmentally-friendly, scientifically-tested epoxy resin technology that involves placing a liner within an existing pipe and curing it to become effectively a 'pipe within a pipe'.
Nuflow’s epoxy relining technology can structurally reline multiple angle bends, junctions and changes in pipe size, as well as complete start-stop pipe relining and sectional repairs. This provides significant cost savings and flexibility as the need to reline entire lengths of pipe from point of entry to point of repair is not necessarily required.
Nuflow is also compatible with any pipe material, so it doesn't matter if you have PVC, metal or ceramic pipes, Tunnel Vision has a solution for you!
