    Waterproof USB Camera Use to find leak? Tips?

    I've read a number of people bought a USB camera to try and find the leak in the pool plumbing. Did you use anything to push the camera along - like taping it to fish tape? Any other helpful tips?

    Re: Waterproof USB Camera Use to find leak? Tips?

    Anyone tried a drain snake camera for this, maybe rental from a plumbing place? Pretty sure I've got a leak in one of my inlet pipes - water goes down a couple inches per day and I keep getting sand/dirt buildup on the bottom when the pump is running... no sand and no water loss when it's not.

    I have a Ryobi TEK4 inspection scope but the gooseneck is only about 3' and I don't think I'd trust it to survive underwater.
