Small Plumbing Camera from MEDIT Saves Thousands of Dollars for a Barbados Hotel

Share Article

The MiniFlex plumbing camera is capable of navigating multiple 90 degrees bends in 1½” pipes and P-traps in 1¼” (32mm) PVC pipes. It was reported that the camera helped to save a Barbados hotel many thousands of dollars in losses due to the imminent shut down of their water park.

Swimming Pool Inspection with Plumbing Camera

Swimming Pool Inspection

The track record of the MiniFlex plumbing camera is a story of how a modest investment prevented a huge financial loss. This compact, lightweight and portable camera, designed especially for narrow pipes with multiple bends, was able to locate a leakage in a swimming pool piping system in a Barbados hotel. Freshwater is scarce and expensive on the island, so fixing the issue saved the hotel management a lot of money, and let resort guests keep enjoying the pool and artificial waterfall without interruptions. The plumbing camera was rushed to Barbados when all other methods to detect the leaking spot within a complex and irregularly shaped piping failed. Once the problem area was successfully detected through visual inspection, the exact spot was located thanks to a signal transmitted by a sonde.

This compact and easy-to-use CCTV system was engineered to inspect narrow piping, such as bathroom and kitchen drains, swimming pools, hot tubs, showers, and sprinklers where larger diameter or less flexible push cables turn out to be useless.

MiniFlex comes with three cable length options, 65.6' (20m), 100’ (30m) and 131' (40m). The tiny 0.76" (19.5 mm) camera head boasts a Color CMOS chip, 12 white high power LED lights and an integrated 512Hz sonde, which works with any locator of the same frequency. The cable and the camera head are water-resistant and able to withstand up to 3 Bar pressure. The patented flexi-tube neck of the cable performs extremely well while running through multiple 90 degrees bends in 1.5’’ pipes and larger and can even navigate a P-trap in a 1.25’’ PVC pipe.

The portable DVR unit of MiniFlex plumbing camera has dual power supply: it can operate on a rechargeable battery (up to 7 hours on a single charge) or use standard 110V AC. The DVR is equipped with a 5.6’’ color screen with 640x480 pixels display resolution. The recorded files are kept on a removable SD card, and the image recording resolution is 720x576 pixels.
