Waterproof Recording Video Inspection Camera/Borescope with 5.5mm Probe

The #DCS665 Waterproof Recording Video Inspection Camera/Borescope with 5.5mm Probe is ideal for plumbing, automotive, HVAC/R and general inspection applications. General’s unique waterproof systems make it possible to inspect water and sewer lines carrying running water without worrying about dropping or dunking your grip or monitor. Other "waterproof" inspection systems lack watertight grips and monitors.
