Save Time and Money with a Borescope

Extech Borescope It seems as if borescopes, especially the wireless and recordable variety, are becoming increasingly more popular these days. More and more of our vendors are coming out with their own version of a wireless inspection camera.

The basic elements of a borescope include a flexible shaft with a light at the end plus an LCD monitor to see what the lighted end of the shaft “sees.” Other options for borescopes include wireless, date/time stamp, waterproof, recordable, capturing still images and more.

The great thing about these tools is that are really versatile and can save you money in the long run. You can use a borescope to peer into walls and other tight places to look for something before you tear it down, move a heavy appliance, etc… the applications for a borescope are almost endless. Plus, the cost of these wireless inspections cameras are coming down in price; for under $300 you can get a wireless video borescope with color LCD monitor.

Here are 10 applications for borescopes:

  1. HVAC Inspections
  2. Cable Routing
  3. Plumbing Inspection
  4. Pest Control
  5. Electrical Inspection
  6. Home Theater Installation
  7. Manufacturing of Cast or Machined Parts
  8. Water Restoration
  9. Automotive Inspection
  10. Medical (granted they’re called endoscopes but they’re considered special purpose borescopes)
