Most residential sink drain, floor drain, toilet drain plumbing issues are the result of a buildup of grease, food particles and foreign objects like feminine hygiene products, paper towels, utensils or toys. For older homes, in the greater Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley area in particular, the most frequent cause of sewer line obstructions are tree and plant roots. Typically old sewer clay pipes are invaded by organic intrusions like roots seeking water. Once a root ball permanently blocks these pipes, a simple rooter or even a hydro-jetter may not be effective. In these instances, Flood Brothers’ trenchless pipe replacement and repair technology provides a holistic solution without causing any significant, material damage to driveways, front yards or landscaping.

One of the most effective ways to determine the source of any blockage is seeing the obstruction with your own eyes. For this Flood Brothers’ Drain Cleaning & Repair technicians use a digital imaging system. A camera line inspection is the state-of-the-art tool professional plumbers use to quickly and accurately determine the source of any problem in your drainpipes. We feed a flexible, fiber optic cable through your pipe with a small, high-resolution waterproof camera attached on the end of it. During the entire exploratory viewing through your pipes, our camera transmits the live video feed to our operator, who can also record the video for your examination.
Flood Brothers’ Drain Cleaning & Repair Video Camera Line Inspection can determine the following:
Identification of any bulky waste or debris, including hair, grease, foreign objects like feminine hygiene products, paper towels, utensils or toys as well as the most common culprit tree roots.
Obstructions are not always the result of buildup or foreign objects. Sometimes a broken pipe, a collapsed or cracked line, can also cause the flow obstruction. Often a shift in the ground that surrounds the pipe has offset the drain lines or the weight of the soil on top of a drainpipe has caused it to collapse.
Wear and tear is inevitable on older 50 year plus plumbing systems. The clay or cast iron materials may have deteriorated or corroded. A camera line inspection enables us to rule out any form of speculation or conjecture as both the technician and yourself are able to see the condition of your lines in real time or later on your computer or tablet.

Cable snakes are generally the first line of defense against tree roots and breaking through solid blockages. However, they are generally less effective in removing grease, scale and other softer buildup. Cable machines do bore holes through sludge but they can’t clean and push the debris out of pipes as effectively as a water jet machine. Also when root intrusions are so extensive and firmly compacted, a cable snake is unable to bite into the root ball. In those scenarios Flood Brothers’ Drain Cleaning & Repair technicians use high-pressure hydro jetting with state-of-the-art pumps and highly specialized tips mounted on the end of a heavy-duty flexible hoses. An array of forward and reverse water jets BLAST water at over 3000 lbs. of pressure per square inch which slice through immovable root intrusions, grease, sludge, sand and debris like a laser beam.
