It’s not too far. I bought a camera but i guess it’s not firm enough so it won’t fet through the bends lol. I also bought an auger but it also has troubles getting through. Perhaps I need higher quality stuff. Also——-at any time I can let air out of my filter for 2-3 seconds before water spurts out——would this be a good indication of an intake leak somewhere? Thanks!
