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.

It’s a great equipment!
My shower drain was having clogging problems 3 to 4 times per year and each time I had to call plumbers as well as use drain snake myself to clear the clog. Finally, I wanted to check the drainpipe and see if anything inside the pipe was causing the clog. I called plumbing companies and was told that there is not a camera available that can move through a 1.5-inch pipe and the P-Trap. I decided to check online and found MiniFlex plumbing camera specifically designed for 1-1/4" drainpipes or bigger.
I called the Fiberscope company located in Woburn MA and after talking to Terry I rented the MiniFlex and a locator which they shipped to my address in Mercer Island Washington.
I used the camera and the locator the same day after receiving it. It was very easy to push the cable with the camera through the drainpipe and especially the P-Trap. The MiniFlex small monitor was very clearly showing the camera moving forward until it could not move further. I saw something inside the pipe that should not have been there. The locator was also very helpful locating the camera inside the wall on the lower floor laundry room.
Now I will involve a professional to open the wall with the problem pipe and replace the section of the pipe that had foreign object inside.
MiniFlex camera was very helpful in finding the problem which we had for many years.
This is the only camera on the market that can get through the shower drainpipe and with ease!

is the miniflex has articulation angle camera?
is the display DVR image?
- Written by Edi Sucipto
Hi Edi, No the Miniflex has no articulation, but the viewing angle is quite wide - 105°. Also the camera head is maneuverable enough to navigate tight bends or turns in 1-1/4" pipes or bigger. Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns. 800-239-9934
