3 Features To Look For In A Quality Pipe Inspection Camera

Whether you are just a regular, everyday handyman around the house or you have your own plumbing business, having access to a good pipe inspection camera can totally erase some of the woes of plumbing and sewer work. These nifty cameras have a feeder line with a small camera on the end that captures visuals and transmits the data back to a screen you can watch, while you navigate through things like clogged drains and jammed pipes. However, there are MANY different pipe inspection cameras out there, so finding a good one can be tough. Here is a short list of a few features you should be looking for to help you track down a decent model. 

There are several feet of premium-grade video cable included. 

It is not at all uncommon for some drainage and plumbing lines to be extremely long, which means you could potentially be pushing a lot of cable into a line to get to the point of the problem and capture an image. Because of this, you will need to be using premium-grade video transmission cable to connect the camera to the viewing monitor. If you don't, the imagery you get sent back to the viewing monitor will likely be choppy and constantly interrupted because of a poor connection. 

The monitor is encased in a shock-proof protective case. 

Plumbing of any level is a dirty job, and sometimes, things can get slippery, dirty, and dropped, especially the tools you are using to do the work. You don't want to invest a lot of money in a good camera system, only to damage your monitor because it slips out of your hands during the first job. Go for a camera system that has a monitor that is fully protected in a nice, waterproof case that is capable of handling some shock if it something slips from your hands. 

The system has a built-in, rechargeable battery. 

When you are feeding the video line, you need as much mobility as possible around the house or work site. If you have to stay plugged into a socket while you work, it can really hinder your ability to move freely. Therefore, pipe inspection camera kits that come with an integrated battery that can be recharged is preferable. Likewise, go for battery systems that are known to give long-lasting power with less charging time, like a good lithium-ion battery. This leaves you free to move around the property while you work.

About Me

Becoming More Familiar With Technology

Do you remember the last time you really started thinking about technology? I began focusing more and more on state-of-the-art improvements a few months ago, and it was really amazing to me to see just how far different things had come along. For example, the solar panels I looked at ten years ago or so are nothing compared to the versions of today, and cell phones now are an incredible asset to everyone who owns them. I started thinking about different things that could help me out, and I realized that putting together a blog for everyone might be helpful. Check out this blog for more information on technology.
