    Is there some kind of flexible tube with a video camera on the end that will fit into a 2" drain pipe? I think I'll need to see 25 feet.

    The good ones have a transmitter on the camera. So that when you see the problem, you can walk around with the detector and find exactly where the camera is under the slab or ground.

    The transmitter will even give you a close approximation of the depth of your pipe.

    if you really want to see what is going on inside the pipe , hire a drain cleaning contractor. yes you can rent this type of camera, but the skill to send it down the pipe is another matter. most people do not have a clue how to get the thing around elbows, tees, and Y.
