    shower drains have traps and traps are hit or miss. most of the time miss.

    i avoid traps 99.9% of the time. especially old cast iron traps.

    about the only trap that is safe is a modern day plastic p-trap. usually 2'' and larger.

    of course it also depends on the camera unit you purchased.

    next time try the roof vent if it's a straight shot or doesn't have vent 90's

    phoebe it is

        I have a new camera myself. Forget even trying a cast trap with a sewer cam. At least with plastic, it shouldn't be scratched or ground too bad. At this point, I don't even want to put my camera in cast without a skid. If it doesn't fit with the skid, it doesn't go. I'm actually working on some smaller skids, but still no way would I attempt a cast P trap or U bend as you call it. Without the skid, cast really takes a toll on the camera head.
