  • Crooked spring/camera head

    My full size seesnake has developed a bend in the spring that causes the camera head to focus on one side the pipe. My mini which is much older doesn't have this bend. I use the star guides with the full size.

    The retaining cable and sonde wires inside seem to be alright inside and not bound up.

    Any ideas?

    None. But then again, three people have posted here that have kinks develop in their Micro without actually kinking them.

      Just order another spring from coleman, it is real easy to do and when they get hung up they bend sometimes.

        not uncommon for the spring to get a set in it.
        how many times have you had your camera flip in a cleanout and double back at itself.

                Kink the kinked spring below where it's kinked so it's kinked in the opposite direction of the said Kink. Two Kinks kinked in exact opposite directions should allow for straight shot. Lol. Smile.

                  That spring was designed for south of the equater obviously. Where gravity is way differnt, I propose you flop the spring the other direction LOL

                    If i only have the mini, do you think using that through a toilet trap would be to harsh on the spring? If so, i didnt want to risk that as i have found some toilets are tough to work in the toilet wire auger as it is.

                    Have folks here successfully slide the mini through toilets without harm to the spring?

                      the only camera that was designed for pushing through toilets is the micro drain. it's no so much the spring, it's the rod that will suffer in a toilet trap.
