    Re: sewer camera

    If it works, you can use it just to verify if a line is cleaned properly and what distance it runs. Otherswise no sonde is useless for locating. Verify the condition and if it is repairable in the future. Get a ser # and call gatorcam or a service center for help.
    Not a bad start, but not as usefull as you will need. Theres a reason they're selling it cheap.

          You Gatorcam 1 ,2 ,3 Whatever the case may be should be the exact same thing as a Gen-eye 1,2,or3...just Blue instead of orange...

          I'd be pretty surprised if it does not have a sonde as depending on the age it's pretty much standard issue., and should transmit on 512.

          As far as putting a tape on sonde in the spring that is easy enough to do depending on the size of the sonde.

            Thanks gene and rick I have the unfortunate pleasure to say that I broke the damn thing the first day I used it.i was done rodding /camering a line and went to clean off some sludge of the head and I guess I gripped yhe head to hatd so as I wiped it off I loosened the csmera head and must of twisted all the wiring and now I have no picture the led'z worked bit no picture .I re soldered the loose wire but still no picture. Called a j colemon and he flat out said he wont even try to fix or replace the head just come in and buy a new/or used ridgid.after my atempt to fix now the ledz wont light up .I remember a post a while ago about a guy who used a car back up camera on his gator since no replacement parts are avaliable.any thoughts gentleman? ? Btw its a grey color reel wich I think is the gator one ...I know I know should of bought a ridgid!! But any advice instead of playing a rude trick and put it outside the van and wach and see if someone grabs it thinking they just stole a great tool.lol

              I'm sorry to see things like this happen. Sadly, those of us who have been on this forum for a while see these type of result all of the time.
