Can anybody recommend a good plumber in this area?

I seem to have a main drain clog, not sure if it is tree roots or some things my visiting sister flushed down the toilet or both. It seems to be a partial clog for now, as things do drain. But when the washing machine drains, the water in the toilet bowl goes down and starts gargling and seems to seep out from the bottom of the toilet (and when I do any plunging in the tub/toilet), and then water (with lint and whatever else) starts coming up through the drain in the bathtub. And more water if I flush the toilet during that time. Anyway, so I'm sure it's a main drain clog. And I may have to install a new wax ring for the toilet (but I will likely do that myself).

Anyway, does anybody know of a good plumber that can clear a main drain line efficiently, who doesn't charge an arm and a leg for it? Seems like I paid an awful lot to have RR come out when we first moved in a couple of months ago, as the prior owners had seemingly dumped the entire contents of their refrigerator down the drain and caused some issues with everything except the toilet and the bathroom sink.

ALSO, does anyone know if the city will come out and run a camera through my main drain line? Some cities will do that, free of charge, and I'm not sure if Groton does or not. Anybody know?

Thank you for any help anyone can give me. Advice or what have you. I may end up trying to tackle the main drain myself, as I can access it in the crawlspace, it seems. But if anybody knows of somebody who can do it for me at an agreeable price, I wouldn't mind hiring somebody.

I think that all of the plumbers are into politics now. Perhaps, you can find some politician to help you with the clogged drain problem

Haha, maybe I'd have better luck tackling it myself then?
