  • Directional seesnake

    If going upstream in a reverse cleanout and come to a wye, how do you "turn" the camera to go into the branch you want? The string idea doesn't work well for me.

          ben, the string along with a loop in the seesnake cable should allow the head to be directed as needed.

          typically i won't snake a reverse c/o without camering the line in advance. the wye is where i typically will stop or know that the cutter will continue straight.

          anyway to run the camera from a vent and go downstream?

            In this house, no but I was in at 45' Cast iron. The string kept snagging on the sides of the pipe. There's gotta be a better way.

              ben, the nice thing about the camera is that you know how far you can safely snake. when you hit that wye at 45' that is how far you can safely snake.

              remember, your k-60 doesn't have eyes. at 45' it's not going to steer the direction you want it to go.

              either stop or install an end of line c/o.

              now maybe, i'll work on a set of eyes for my k-60

              that way i can take it to the movies and out to dinner. it will be my seeing eye snake
