  • Which Cable for remote transmitter

    I recently purchased the scout locator with the remote transmitter, and I got a 1/4" fiberglass rod that screws right onto the transmitter that I push in by hand. I mainly use it to locate sewer lines before we sawcut for the tie ins. My problem is with the 1/4" rod it flexes to much in a 4" and bigger line and won't make it around the 1/4 bend on 3" and smaller. What is a good cable to use to be able to push it around 1/4 bends? I do not have a camera and I don't need one at this point just want to locate where to tie in. Do they make something you can push by hand or do I need a drum type machine?

    You can buy adapters which will adapt the remote transmitter to attach directly to Ridgid drain cleaning cables.

      i have an assortment of remote transmitters. i havn't used them in years as the camera with transmitter is the way to go.

      it allows you to pinpoint the best locaton for a tie in. not just locate the pipe.

      the spring head of the camera is the reason why you can make the turns.

      i have a few spring head carriers that i use to put my transmitters in and then push them out with the fiberglass rods.

      1/4'' and 5/16'' are good choices for 3-6''. my 3/8'' rod is too stiff for 1/4 bends, but great for large storm drains.
