A drain inspection camera is probably one of the most useful tools to have in your truck as it lets you see exactly what's going on in that drain and virtually eliminates guesswork. But considering most clogs are found within four feet of a drain, why break out the unwieldy, expensive camera system to simply peek around a bend? This terrific battery-powered camera brings this capability in a lightweight and compact package perfect for many residential jobs.
This drain inspection camera is designed to fit nicely in one hand, allowing you to manipulate the four-foot-long cable with the other hand for the best view of the problem. The cable is stiff enough to push toward the problem, but flexible enough to easily navigate a 1-1/2" p-trap. The 2.45" color LCD screen, water and chemical resistant camera with LED lighting allows you to clearly see any potential problems within the piping. As if great video isn't enough, this model allows you to capture still images, which can be useful for before-and-after comparisons or to show to customers.
Equipped with enough internal memory for thousands of images, this drain inspection kit also includes a USB cable so you can display the video on your laptop or download your still images to your office computer. Better yet, this camera runs on just four AA batteries, so there's no cords to trip over while you do your job. There's even two integral wall magnets and an optional hang hook so you can wall mount it if you wish. For even greater convenience and flexibility, the included hook, magnet, and mirror accessories may be attached to the optical cable head. To top it off, this great kit includes a durable carrying case with enough room to store extra batteries.
