How to use a Sanyipace Sewer Camera Self-Leveling, 328ft/100m 0.2in/5mm Harder Fiberglass Cable


What is going on, everybody. My name is David, I'm "Mechanicallyincleyend" Channel. Today, we're going to be reviewing a sewer camera that you could use actually in ductwork, crawl spaces, or different types of piping if you need to find something out. Sanyipace did provide a free sample, but the opinions in this video are my own. I'm very excited to get to start cameraing things. I don't actually have a large camera like this, or at least I didn't until this. So, I'm going to take a look at what you get in the box here.

Beautiful Suitcase with Hard Shell

All right, first of all, you've got a nice rigid case here. I hope that's going to help protect the screen. We have our battery, and that is going to power the screen and the camera. And you also get a little slot here where you're going to be able to plug a keyboard in, which is going to help you make notes for customers or your records.

Self-leveling Camera & Useful Accessories

Here we have the camera itself. I read somewhere that there's some self-leveling liquid or something in there that keeps the camera facing the correct direction all the time, which I'm really curious to test out.

We have some other accessories, including a little screwdriver here. These are the accessories, camera cover and USB keyboard. Kind of cool. The little roll-out keyboard just to be able to make some quick notes on the job full size, too. They also included a bag here, which contains a little guide with some caster roller wheels, that's going to help some of the larger diameter pipes to sort of keep things centered if you're going down a main large sewer line.

Lastly, we have a power supply now. I already charged this battery. It took about four hours or so. It has a red indication when it's charging in green when it is completely charging. All right, we are going to need to attach to the camera. Let's go ahead and get this threaded on.

USB Soft Keyboard for Convenient Recording

Here, we're going to fire up this guy and make sure it works. I've already connected everything. We have a little on and off switch so that we can turn on the power supply there. We've got our display coming on right now, and our camera is actually working on the display. It comes with a memory card, and you've got record, play, photo, zoom, and turn the power off. So pretty cool. Let's get the keyboard set up and start typing the keyboard. Hopefully, we'll be able to get it to start connecting. "My house," all right, enter. Okay, we've got it reading "my house" there, so the keyboard's working to type.

 Back all the way inside of these plants. We have our gym cap on our main sewer line I cleaned  out, which we need to remove with a little nut driver here. Oh, a bunch of flies are living in there. Disgusting, that's going to be our access into the drain testing things out in there. Take you up a little closer here so you can see all those flies in there. I've got my snake going down on inside.

Adjustable LED Light & IP68 Waterproof

Before we start, we have to figure out how to get the light on this thing. Let's turn on the camera's LED light. Look at the edge of the camera, and there is a circle of small LED bulbs. The button to adjust the LED is on the battery and can adjust the brightness in five levels. We turned it to the brightest and then put the camera deep into the sewer pipe.

Take a look and see what we can see. As the camera moves forward, some distance data appears on the screen, which should be the electronic meter function of the camera. So now we're in the horizontal section. We're going down, and we're at 21 feet now. So far so good, we're going to go inside the house and run some water. I've got some water moving; that's because I left one of the faucets on. Everything is looking very clear up until this point. We're at about 30 feet, so we're already out onto the street. It's doing a great job of keeping the camera nice and level. So we want to go to full strength to the fifth LED, and I'll show you how I'm feeding it in. I've just got my hands, and I'm just sort of guiding it down just like this. It's going down nice and smoothly, really smooth. We're already at 41.39 feet.

There's a little bit of build up along the walls. But in general, everything is super clean on this run here. It's just we're going all the way out. So if there were any roots or any stoppages, we'd be able to pick them up on this camera here. See if we can go until we see where we pick up to the next house or something or until it wants to stop. We're still going with no obstructions. It looks like we're moving into a brick area. You can see the change in the pipe. So now we're really out to the city here. Oh, and we can see a turd there. Ooh, disgusting, very, very, very gross but awesome; we went 100 feet.


All right, so now we're going to be feeding this back into the cable spool. And as it comes out, I'm going to be using a rag to clean everything. Because I don't want to put this thing back in my truck. I want to try to clean it up as best as possible, and we're leaving some water running. I have to say that the design of this spool is very clever, and the pulling and retracting of the cable are very smooth. We'll go ahead and clean this off. That way, we can have it ready for the next job, whenever that may be. I will be prepared.

Many thanks to Sanyipace for sending me this product to review. It's definitely going to come in handy on a lot of my work with drains and different things that I get into. So if you're thinking about getting a camera for yourself and you want something like this. I'll leave a link down in the description somewhere so you can pick one up for yourself.
