Drain Inspections: What We Check

One of the reasons to call on a plumber in Scottsdale, AZ from Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix is to find out what's causing drains to clog, overflow, drain slowly, or emit foul odors. We provide clear answers by conducting an inspection. Below, we go over what we typically look for:

Possible Leak Sources

While conducting sewer camera inspection services in Scottsdale, AZ, one of the things we check for is any likely leak sources. These could include visible cracks, places where intrusive shrub or tree roots are coming near, gaps in the pipe, or places where part of the pipe has collapsed. If you are noticing your driveway pad is starting to buckle, this is a very common large tree root issue that will not get any better on its own. Damage and breakage under slabs can be the most costly but when Mr. Rooter comes out to give you a free inspection or second opinion- they will talk to you about a trenchless repair or replacement that helps us offer an option not to replace the driveway.

Accumulated Debris and Other Clog Culprits

From soap, hair, and food particles to things not meant to be flushed and debris that was pushed down far into pipes, there are many possible clog culprits. This is why another thing we look for during a plumbing inspection is anything that could either be causing existing clogs or be a potential clog source later.


With a sewer inspection, we also check pipes for signs of corrosion. While it's natural for some degree of corrosion to happen over time, if it's widespread, the line could become unstable over time. By catching issues with corrosion early, we can recommend the most appropriate solutions to minimize the need for full replacement.

Whether you're already seeing signs of problems or you prefer to find out what's going on with proactively, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Phoenix is at your service. We'll conduct a thorough drain inspection, discuss the results with you, and let you know if any additional services are worth considering.
