Innovative plumbing inspection camera MiniFlex features extreme portability and maneuverability.
The MiniFlex all-in-one plumbing camera is the best and only device you will ever need for small diameter pipe inspections. The MiniFlex all-in-one inspection camera is the best and only device you will ever need for small diameter pipe inspections. These push cameras are ideal for plumbers, pool and spa professionals, and pipefitters. The special patented flexi-tube neck behind the camera head makes these units extremely flexible and capable of navigating multiple 90 degrees bends in 1½” pipes and P-traps in 1¼” (32mm) PVC pipes. MiniFlex can be used to inspect kitchen and bathroom drains, pools, spas, hot tubs, showers, sprinkler lines, and narrow diameter industrial machinery that other units cannot navigate.
This plumbing inspection camera is sold as a complete all-in-one set with everything that you require included and ready to go. The camera head is 19mm (0.75 inches) in diameter. The color CMOS chip has 12 high powered LED lights, which provide excellent illumination to inspect pipes up to 4 inches (100mm) in diameter. The live image is bright and crisp, with a wide angle 105-degree field of view, 400 TV lines, and a resolution of 720x576 pixels. The camera head is also extremely durable with high-grade stainless steel, a waterproof rating of 3 bars (100 ft.), scratch-proof sapphire glass lens, and a built-in 512 Hz Sonde to locate the unit underground, behind walls or cabinets.
The waterproof flexible push cable is 5.5mm (0.22”) in diameter and constructed of a very durable poly blend and specially designed to make tight bends in small lines. This comes in lengths from 20 meters (65.6 ft.) to 40 meters (131 feet), and between the push cable and the camera head is the special patented flexi-tube neck which allows the bullet-shaped camera to easily run through multiple 90 degrees bends in 1.5” or larger pipes, and a trap in 1.25” PVC pipe, without damaging it.
The MiniFlex set while extremely portable is also entirely self-contained. The entire system is one small portable unit that can be easily picked up, stored and set up anywhere. The live image is displayed on a color 5.6” LCD monitor, housed inside a metal case, with a sun shield for daylight inspections. The monitor can flip up, allowing you to position this plumbing inspection camera either vertically or horizontally depending on the job site. Live video and images are recorded via the built-in digital video recorder onto an SD memory card, and this set features a text generator, onscreen electronic foot counter, rechargeable battery that provides up to 7 hours of portable use, a skid to center the camera head in larger pipes, video output, a USB Card reader, and a 110V power adapter.
The only accessory that you would need to add to this set is a sonde locator, to locate the camera head beacon. Everything else is already included.

I was having an issue inspecting galvanized lines in a house. I had a Ridgid microDrain camera but we were only able to do about 50% of our inspections. So after reviewing some information and videos on Miniflex plumbing camera, we arranged a demo.
The sink in the bathroom we snaked and tried out, the Ridgid unit did not go into the drain, the Miniflex went right in. In the Tub, plastic line into galvanized, Miniflex went in both ways to 7, again the Ridgid did not.
In the Kitchen both units worked fine in that drain, which was more plastic piping. Both units performed the same. In direct comparison I liked the software on the Ridgid more, but obviously, the Miniflex plumbing camera is a way better performer, especially in houses with galvanized lines.
