    The local plumbers say it's "too hard" to maneuver their 300 lb machines into my basement, or never show up.

    I have Milwaukee's 100ft drum machine but a note on the wall says 118ft to the manhole. I have an additional drum on the way which will give me 150 ft reach (though Milwaukee doesn't recommend it) - but I want to see what's going on in there (roots, roots, and more roots I suspect, but I have an excavator to fix the foundation and want to know if I should replace the clay pipe at the same time).

    I found this camera from Amazon:
    https://smile.amazon.com/Inspection-Anysun-Waterproof-Industrial-Endoscope/dp/B087BCLBLL (and various other obviously all direct from China equivalents) at about $550 shipped.

    Home Depot has something from a bit more of a brand name (FORBEST) for $700 shipped https://www.homedepot.com/p/FORBEST...pe-Inspection-Camera-FBPIC3188SD130/302621154

    Since I'm not going to be doing this professionally going up to the Rigid or similar cameras at $3k+ don't seem worthwhile - has anyone had experience with either of those?

    With Home Depot I'd probably have a bit of a better chance taking it back if it's an absolute piece of #$%#$ ...
