A sewer drain camera is an essential piece of plumbing equipment when dealing with whole-house blockages and backups. With this camera, you can see down into the drains and all of the interconnected channels in order to identify blockages and other problems. This is the perfect tool to use if plunging appliances, snaking drains, and taking other troubleshooting measures have not helped. Not only will it make it easier to identify the problem directly at its source, but it can additionally prevent plumbing system damages by eliminating the need for forceful measures. In instances in which pipes have burst or collapsed, these tools can also save time and prevent secondary damages. They are especially helpful in instances in which older homes have outdated clay pipes at their exterior. These clay-based piping systems are prone to being entered by invasive roots and weed species that create massive clogs.
