If an underground pipe was to crack, burst or be damaged by tree root ingress, there used to only be one method to fix it - to get down and dirty with some digging. However, excavation and digging is not always a viable option. The burst water pipe may be located nearby an underground hazard, beneath a building, or within a heritage-listed area.
Fortunately, Tunnel Vision Perth has partnered with Nuflow Australia to provide Western Australia with quick, cost-effective drain repair and pipe relining services that reduce potential risks and hazards and won’t result in any major environmental disruption.
Using Nuflow’s advanced Blueline, Greenline and Redline epoxy resin technology, we can seamlessly reline and repair any leaking or broken pipes with minimal disruption to homes, businesses and assets. We can even perform sewer relining!
What is Pipe Relining?
Pipe relining, commonly referred to as ‘trenchless pipe repair’, ‘cured-in-place-pipe’ (CIPP), or ‘pull-in-place’ (PIP), involves placing a liner within an existing pipe and curing it to become effectively a ‘pipe within a pipe’.
This process uses environmentally friendly, scientifically-tested, epoxy resin technology to create a new seamless structural strength pipe, function or sectional repair within the host pipe.
Tunnel Vision Perth has partnered with Nuflow Australia to deliver Western Australia with a trenchless solution to pipeline repairs using the very latest in epoxy relining technology. Nuflow's epoxy resin material is highly flexible and can repair a pipe or drain of any shape or size.
How Does Our Perth Trenchless Pipe Relining Work?
- We utilise an advanced CCTV drain camera to determine what the problem at hand is and identify if there is a potential problem that could occur in the future.
- If there is a blocked drain, the pipework is cleared utilising our high-pressure drain cleaning water jets.
- A custom-made bladder is inserted into the pipe through an access point/inspection opening and positioned in the desired location.
- The epoxy liner is inflated using compressed air and it moulds to the host pipe, filling cracks, holes and spanning over any voids in the pipeline. The liner is then left to cure under an ultraviolet light as it moulds to the existing pipe.
- Once cured, the bladder is removed. The pipe has now been successfully repaired.

Where Can Pipe Relining Be Used?
Pipe relining can be used in any property, commercial or residential, that requires sectional pipe repairs or complete mainline repairs. This includes drains, sewer drains, stormwater drains, vertical stacks, downpipes and main pipelines.
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’s Blueline, Greenline and Redline are suitable for pipes with a diameter of 40mm to 1500mm and virtually any type of material. This includes PVC, cast-iron, concrete, roll groove, galvanised pipe, copper, HDPE, poly pipe, and ZINCALUME® steel. Nuflow’s pipe and drain relining technology can also be used to reline junctions, changes in pipe direction, and can be custom-made to length from one metre upwards.
