A true warning sign is when you keep having recurring drain clogs and blockages even after you’ve had a recent drain cleaning performed. Any build up or debris in the drain pipe gets removed after a thorough drain cleaning by a professional plumber. In this case, after the drain pipe is cleaned it shouldn’t get clogged or blocked any time soon. However, if the drain pipe has other problems such as bends, breaks, or invasive tree roots piercing through the pipe, the clogs and blockages will persists bringing new drain issues to the homeowner.
At this time, you have to order a drain inspection. The drain inspection will tell what the cause of the problem is. Is it invasive tree roots blocking your drain pipe?

The video recording is very detailed and it can point out many problems, such as bends, tree roots, bigger blockages, etc. Now having recorded the real cause of the drain clog, you will know the right solution for the drain issue.
If you find out that there are tree roots blocking or growing inside the drain pipe, you have several options to solve this problem. Depending on the severity, you can have the tree roots removed, or try to kill them with a special solution, designed to kill tree roots that grow inside the pipes.
If you find out that the drain pipe is broken or bended, you again have several options depending on the severity of the problem. Many drain and sewer repair methods today do not involve digging, such as the No Dig or Trenchless pipe relining or Pipe Patching.
