    So I understand you're a cs6 man. Great choice. Now all you need is a mini or rm200. We'll dig 1 up for you. All new members get a sign up prize. Who knows it might just be that.

    Welcome to the forum and looking forward to your plumbing stories.

    Rick.

                    Avalon, so close, yet so far.

                    joey said if you need a hand with those inspections, we can make a weekend out of it. I can bring lots of toys to sample out. Compact is only 100' so that is out. My suggestion is the seesnake mini or the rm 200 max. paired with a cs6 monitor and you'll be the king of the island.

                      Rick.

                      I'm still trying to work this out. Still have questions. If I was to get the mini should I get self leveling head? Or does it require to much maintenance? Is it more expensive too maintain? The price difference between the Mini with self leveling head and RM200 Max is only a couple of hundred bucks, what is the real difference between the two? I dont mind spending a couple hundred bucks more if there is a good benefit. Or should I just flip a coin?

                      Thanks again for your help

                        I was told that the self leveling units were problematic, so I did not get one, easy enough to tell bottom of pipe so not worth the extra cost. I lived on the island for 2 years back in the 70's, but not plumbing. Had a great time there. I must have been sitting right next to you at lunch at the show, but don't remember you, will be there next year for sure, never miss one

                          I'd get a mini non level head over the RM200 because of better lighting and picture quality. I agree with the real Rick about the self leveling being troublematic.

                          However the monitor choice is easy.....CS6.
                          Buy cheap, buy twice.
