    well my rycom locator was recently stolen so i am looking for other options. with the rycom i had a sonde i used. is there any locator on the market that i could use to just locate the sewer snake and its depth when in the line? thinking this might be easier and lower cost? any ideas?

    you could get a helper for around 20 k a year, do not have to pay it in one lump some.

    weekly payments are ok. sometimes they dont work, you have return them and get a different one.

    You might be able to use a "brick" to energize your cable. Still would have to buy the locator on top of that.

    this is the locator I use seektech-sr20-locator with this "brick"

    It will also work with the built in transmitter on our sea snake camera. The "brick" transmitter good for locating copper lines under a slab and gas lines.
