Most home owners don’t want to spend money on professional services thinking that they can fix problems themselves. Although there are simple plumbing repairs that will do as a DIY project, some repair problems can be complicated and require professional help.

Many times we experience having our toilets clogged and the drain being slow. Sometimes these problems can easily be fixed with the tools you have at home. Clogs in your pipes can also be broken down with specialized chemicals that you can purchase in stores. These chemicals are only good for short-term fixes and not long term. There may be a deeper issue with chronic clogs and it should be inspected and diagnosed by a professional plumber.
Sometimes clogs are caused by something which are lodged deep within the pipes of our homes. These clogs make our drains run slow and repeated backups and they cannot be solved with the products we buy in the store. Professional plumbers can actually see inside the pipes since they have specialized equipment to do so. With camera line inspection, the plumber is able to see the clog and determine the best method for clearing it. With the special camera the clog can easily be seen so there is no need to dig up your yard to find it. The method used by plumbers is hydro jetting where high pressure water is sent through the pipes to remove any sludge or grime build up or foreign objects that may be blocking the flow. Although drain snakes can be used for a temporary solution, the best method is using hydro jetting to clear the pipes completely.
