  • Seesnake Micro good or just OK?

    Now that some of you have a Micro by now what do you think?
    Ferguson's finally has them in stock so next week I get mine. Saw the demo video Ridgid has up and wondered why none included a view down a pipe? It is water proof so how well does it do when it's poked down say a floor drain to see if the trap is broken

    Re: Seesnake Micro good or just OK?

    I just finished a project in Reno with 60 + college housing units. One of the complaints is sewer gas at the floor drains in the equipment rooms of the units. Although they have trap primers it appears the positive pressure in the equipment room is evacuating the p-traps.

    Before the micro I would have to use my flashlight and try to look for the trap-seal. If it was dry I would note it but could not take pictures of it. Now with the micro I get a clear view within seconds and I can take a picture of the micro screen. The only thing which would make it nicer for me is if I could capture the video.

    BTW: After a few weeks of using the micro I realized the picture quality is greatly enhanced if you remove the protective film from over the monitor.

        LOL-At least I am not alone. Of course Ridgid could have added some text on the film which read "REMOVE PROTECTIVE FILM".

          WOW..There are others like me. I kept complaining about the crappy picture until my helper recommended removing the protective film. Of course I had to bark at him and remind him that I knew it was there. CMA technique.

                  It would be nice if there were some way to store the video or just basic photos on some kind of memory card.

                    Yes there is a thumb wheel to turn the light on and to what power you want.

                      This seems to be one of the standard comments regarding the micro.

                            it`s a big design flaw!


                            I may have to try something like that "IF" they fix mine?

                              So glad I started this thread before I went out and bought one.

                              Was really excited about having one too

                              Looks like I'll be waiting til next model comes out.
