Not on this model, the cable is permanently mounted. On models CA150 and CA350 you can put on different cable extensions.

It fit in 1/2 inch electric pipe and flexible pipe

I don’t think it will fit in a 1/2 in. pipe. The thread size of an LS 5.3L GM cylinder head is 14mm and it wouldn’t fit through.

Can I purchase an extension to give me further inspection ability?

I'm not aware of an extension that is sold by Home Depot but good question.  You may want to contact the manufacture directly and see if an extension is made or if they see tool with a longer probe.

I will be using this on high voltage units. Are there exposed metal parts or is it non-conductive?

In my opinion I would not use this Ridgid inspection tool in a high voltage type of situation. High voltage is dangerous, I would notify Ridgid as to directions of your intentions before proceeding.

Cutting a hole slightly bigger than the camera tip would be fine. If there is insulation in the wall it will obstruct your view.

Works well. Hookup to a full-size TV is easy; you’ll need to buy a GANA AV2HDMI converter. Camera has a 4 foot long cable.

Camera is great and the hook attachment is fantastic. I had replaced a toilet and after flushing once something didn’t seem right. I figured I had left the towel in place when I put the toilet on. I pulled the toilet back off to see if I could see the towel but couldn't see anything. I wanted to retrieve it if possible since I have a septic system and it would have worried me having a towel go in there and possibly block something. I always wanted to try one of these cameras so I bought this one. With the camera I could see the towel about a foot and a half in. I put on the hook attachment and got the towel out!

This Rigid model CA-25 inspection camera is just the thing to check out any hidden or hard to reach areas before you do any work that would involve drilling holes in walls, wall demolition, or just checking for water leaks in hidden pipes or drains. Here are several great design features: - nice resolution on the 2.7” (diagonal measure) camera screen (see picture) - easy to understand controls for camera tip LED brightness, image rotation, and power (see picture) - handy carrying case (see picture) includes your first set of four AA batteries - three camera tip attachments for a hook, magnet, and a mirror makes this very versatile - 4 foot cable reach with a semi-rigid neck much like a gooseneck lamp – stays where you want it! - comes with a cable to allow video output to a TV or for recording (see picture) - space in the case to carry a spare set of four batteries as back up - battery case can only be inserted one way, so no mistakes possible (see picture)! - comprehensive 10-page operator’s manual and CD covers everything you need to know (see picture) I highly recommend this inspection camera because it will allow you to do more things as a do-it-yourselfer! It is a very versatile tool!

The camera worked but the tip was too large to do what I needed. I returned it and bought the Ryobi TEK4 instead. The Ryobi worked great. The only downside is the Ryobi uses one rechargeable battery versus the AA batteries for the CA25. This camera will only be used periodically and the shelf life for the rechargeable is about two years. I can see a situation coming where I need it and the battery will be unusable. I would have preferred AA for occasional use..I always have those available.

Worked on 2 inch cast iron p-trap shower drain!
Where do I begin? Well for starters I don't write reviews. This tool however has been the most useful in my arsenal in trouble shooting. After paying a tenant 6,000 dollars to move so the drain could be repaired, I would have never imagined what I would find. We literally had 3 plumbers tell us a camera would not make the P-trap curve and tearing up the slab was the only way to determine what the back up was. I refused to accept that and so did the rigid camera. with a little patience and careful movements of the camera it moved past the 2 inch cast iron trap and beyond! word of advice, if you can't make it past the trap, use a old metal coat hanger with a slightly bent tip to pull up and guide the camera thru the trap. It worked and saved me thousands.

So far, I am pleased with the inspection camera. I can clearly see images on the screen that are both up close as well as several feet away. The adjustable light level helps it to focus in a wider variety of applications. I can also push a button to make the screen image rotate 180 degrees. One complaint is the markings for the batteries. It is not at all clear as to how to properly orientate the batteries. Other than the battery markings, it is a nice product.

Our HVAC techs use this camera to inspect the inside of units and they work great. They last a very long time (years approx. 10) but they all seem to have the same issue; eventually the flexible line wears out and causes a loose connection which makes the signal come in and out. Overall if its lasts 10 years that's roughly a cost of $8 a year and it makes us thousands. Great product!

Very Happy Husband
My husband was coveting this camera after having a chance to use one at his work. My brother and I went in halves to get it for him for Christmas. He was very excited. About a week after Christmas we had a mysterious water leak in our laundry room and he got to try out the inspection camera (see attached picture) the problem was easy to find and solve. Great investment, happy home.
