Portland Plumber: Inspections Make Drain Cleaning Much Easier

Drain clog problems are an especially pesky plumbing issue that if not correctly eliminated, will continue to return, and again…and again worse each time. We’re sure you just LOVE standing in a foot of dirty shower water while waiting for that drain to unclog itself, but never fear we have an even better solution!

What is Camera Pipe Inspection?

Camera, or video, pipe inspection is the process by which a camera is safely slipped into your home’s piping system. The purpose is to find and determine the precise cause and location of drain clogs. In real-time, our licensed professionals can look at the video and quickly determine how to best take action to eliminate the clog. Video pipe inspections may be used in any piping system other than those with pressurized water lines.
