Cameras FAQ


1. General Information about Pipe Inspection Camera Systems

Pipe Inspection Camera Systems are electronic stuff and have to be used with care. Although some models come with heavy duty waterproof case, they could not be dropped from high. Different pipe inspection cameras are suggested for different pipe size application. Do not push the cable further or pull it very hard from the pipe if your camera is stuck inside the pipe in case that the camera may be lost in the pipe or broken or the pipe may be broken. The cable is made of fibreglass, which is very rigid and strong to be pushed in the pipe. As it is not flexible, do not bend the cable sharply out of the reach of the minimum bending angles. Please make sure you get parts from Forbest as parts produced by other source will not be compatible with Forbest Cameras.
