Q. "The Rothenberger Roscope 500 only has a 4 foot cable. Who would find this drain inspection camera useful?"
A. Handymen, home inspectors, plumbers and even homeowners could find this tool useful as a quick check tool for garbage disposals, toilet traps, sink traps, laundry machine traps, shower traps or other areas that you may not want to or can't reach your hand into. We've even heard that some people use these for inspecting ducting! It allows you to quickly inspect problems that could be within four feet of the fixture or opening. If the camera can't see or reach the problem then you will know for sure the problem is further down the line.
Q. "The Gen-Eye Micro-Scope comes with three probe attachments. How do they attach to the probe?"
A. To use the attacments you simply unscrew the chrome tip from the end of the probe rod and thread the desired attachment on to the end of the probe rod. Make sure to tighten securely before use.
