  • Main Line camera system

    So I might be needing a mainline camera system soon. Any recommendations on a decent portable crawler system?

    I've heard good things about Insight Vision's systems. There are out of Wisconsin. I have never used one, but watched one being used.

        The first year DeepSee came to the Waste haulers show with a camera system, they had this SeeSnake reel that was twice the size of the current full size system. 500' of duel pushrod. The camera head was just big enough to do straight shots in 3" but was able to do multiple turns in 4" A year later they came out with the what we know now. I sure do wish I bought that bigger reel now. It would be perfect for the inspections I need to do. Or I wish there was a way to mount a SeeSnake camera head to a crawler this way I can use the CS1000 to do the recording. I want to keep it inexpensive as possible. I was looking in the back of the Cleaner at used systems, found a 1996 van for 12K out in Florida. *sighs* its always true, it takes money to make money.

          How big is this main line you're going to be servicing? I think I would be intimidated by it...but that's because I never did any camera or jetting work before, but I hope to change that because of this forum.

          I just got my free sample issue of cleaner magazine, and I'm going to buy a subscription now. Lot's of interesting things to learn and read in that magazine for new guys like me.

            Get you one of them RC 4x4's and some duct tape. Or you could hook to one of Rick's copters and do fly up close inspections up high.

              Wait till next month. A lot of times when you ask for the free trail, they will send you issues for a whole year. Or you can read it online for free.

                I was amazed at the equipment available for camera work in that magazine. I'll wait and see if they send another issue, no biggie if they don't cause the price is worth the knowledge I'll gain from buying it.

                    Here is another good magazine to subscribe to. Home | Municipal Sewer & Water Magazine Municipal Sewer & Water. Granted I am not a municipal, but the articles and the equipment in there can help us contractors. It is a free subscription.
