  • Ridgid Sonde on Mini SeeSnake Camera

    We have had 2 of the new style sonde's break right on 12 months old in the last week. The new style sonde (been out for a couple of years now) has a 40mm black rod sticking out of each end. I don't know if it is for increasing the signal strength or for protecting the cable connections at either end that used to become damaged when the wires were kinked continually?

    There is a seal at either end joining the rod to the sonde. This seal is not flexible therefore cracks and allows water into the sonde. We have to push the camera around gully traps, similar to a 180 degree bend. This puts pressure on the rod and cracks the seal.

    Ridgid techs, if you are listening, please use a flexible sealant or shorter rods so we can keep our sondes working longer, please!
    Regards, Bill

    bill, those rods are actually the antennas that broadcast the signal.

    are you sure that the safety wires are not cutting into the sondes?

    i avoid traps a 100%. i'll use a vent pipe or pull the trap at the wall.

      I told my guys to dig before going through a gully. Thanks for the tip.

      I'd still like to be able to camera a gully.
