Safety Instructions
WARNING: READ THE “OPERATOR’S MANUAL” THOROUGHLY BEFORE USING ANY SPARTAN
TOOL PRODUCT. DRAIN/SEWER CLEANING CAN BE DANGEROUS IF PROPER PROCEDURES
ARE NOT FOLLOWED. KNOW THE PROPER OPERATION, CORRECT APPLICATIONS AND THE
LIMITATIONS OF ALL SPARTAN TOOL PRODUCTS BEFORE USE.
CAUTION #1
Use of any electrical equipment in a wet environment can cause fatal shock if equipment is
not properly grounded, adequately maintained, and if care is not used by the operator.
A. GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS —
Before charging your Spartan PROvision Touch, make sure a properly grounded, three hole electrical
outlet is available. If not, as in some older homes, use a three-prong adapter and connect the
green pigtail (or grounding lug) to a known ground such as a cold water pipe. Never cut off the
grounding prong for use in a two hole outlet receptacle. By doing so, you have cut off your protection
from shock.
The Spartan PROvision Touch must be grounded while charging or operating using the 110V
power cord to protect the operator from electrical shock. The Spartan PROvision Touch comes
with a three-conductor cord and three-prong grounding type plug to fit the properly grounded
receptacle. An adapter, see sketches (B) and (C), is available for connecting, sketch (A) type
plugs, to a two-prong receptacle, except in Canada.
Page 6
Safety Instructions (cont)
The green-colored rigid ear (or lug), extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box.
Don’t assume that all three-hole outlets are properly installed. Check the outlet and
also the adapter, if used, with an outlet testing device which quickly indicates if a ground is connected.
Correct a faulty test indication before proceeding. The use of a Ground Fault Interrupter is the
safest means to check for proper grounding.
B. EXTENSION CORDS —
Plug the power cord attached to the PROvision Touch directly into an inspected outlet. If an extension
cord must be used, it must be of an approved three-wire type in good condition, equipped with a
three-prong plug. Never cut off the grounding prong for use in a two hole outlet receptacle. By doing
so you have cut off your protection from shock.
C. OUTDOOR EXTENSION CORDS —
When Spartan Tool equipment is used outdoors, use an extension cord intended for use outdoors
and so marked.
D. AVOID ELECTRICAL CORD ABUSE —
Never move or lift Spartan Tool equipment by the cord. Do not yank cord at one end to disconnect
it from the receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil and sharp edges to avoid damage. Always
replace or repair damaged cords.
E. ALWAYS WEAR RUBBER BOOTS IN WET AREAS FOR ADDED PROTECTION
WARNING: SPARTAN TOOL PRODUCTS ARE NEVER TO BE OPERATED IN AN EXPLOSIVE
ENVIRONMENT.
CAUTION #2
Avoid eye or skin contact with acids or caustic substances while inspecting drains/sewers.
A. Always wear safety goggles when inspecting drain/sewers to avoid injury to eyes.
Page 7
Safety Instructions (cont)
B. Before beginning work, ask the customer if either acids or caustic substances are present in the
pipe. If in doubt, litmus paper used at the opening of the pipe may give an indication of the type of
substance in the line. Litmus paper (acids/caustics) can be purchased at most pharmacies.
C. Exposure to acids or caustic substances can cause the push cable to break or to become brittle.
Depending upon the concentration of acids or caustic substances in the drain/sewer, push cables
may break or become brittle in the drum, in the pipe, or when placing the cable back into the drum.
If the push cable remains exposed to acids or caustic substances for any length of time, the cable
can continue to be damaged.
CAUTION #3
Drains/sewers carry bacteria and the possibility of infectious disease exists, if exposed.
A. Always wear safety goggles and Spartan Tool riveted gloves with rubber gloves inside the riveted
gloves to minimize exposure to infection from bacteria in pipes.
B. Avoid contact with ears, eyes, or mouth with contents of pipe to lower the risk of infection. DO NOT
SMOKE!
C. Avoid exposing any cuts to drains/sewers and sewer inspecting equipment
CAUTION #4
Follow all rules of safety and good housekeeping.
A. Keep work area clean.
B. Stay alert.
C. Place the unit and controls in a stable and accessible position for safe operation.
D. Properly store the tools.
E. Keep children away from all equipment.
F. Use only recommended equipment and accessories. Maintain tools in original working condition.
G. Do not exceed limitation of equipment or accessories.
H. Always wear recommended safety gear
I. Always lift with legs and not your back.

Video Sharing & Utilities
After transferring the video files to a computer, the user has a variety of ways to transmit the video to
a customer.
- Email Video - The video file can be attached to an email and sent to a customer. This method is
only possible if the video file is very small, since most email programs restrict email attachment file
sizes to 8 MB. Use this method if the video file is less than 30 seconds long.
- Email Snapshot - If the video file is too big for emailing, but a specific image from the movie
would be appropriate for emailing, use the PROvision Touch Playback. Watch the movie in
playback mode and then pause the screen when you reach the desired video image. Press the
“Snapshot” button to create an image file. Image files are very small compared to video and can
easily be emailed.
- Large File Sending
- For larger video files (over 30 seconds long), email can still be used but it should be sent
through a File Sharing Website. Examples of these websites are SendYourFiles.com and
YouSendIt.com, in which your video file is uploaded to their website. Next, the recipient is sent an
email including a link provided by the File Transfer Website. After opening the file, the link will send
the customer directly to the video location for download.
- Alternatively, video websites such as YouTube can be used for video distribution.
- CD-ROM Recording - Video files less then 700 MB in size can be burned to a CD format disk.
Note: A CD-ROM with movie files will only be viewable on a computer. CD-ROM’s can not be
played using a home DVD player.
- DVD-ROM Recording - Video files over 700 MB in size can be burned to a DVD format disk.
Note: A DVD-ROM with movie files will only be viewable on a computer. DVD-ROM’s can not
be played using a home DVD player.
- DVD Movie Recording - Using computer software, DVD Movie recordings can be made for use
on a home DVD player (in addition to a computer). There are a variety of movie making software
packages available (Nero, Movie Studio, Roxio). NOTE: Movie making software not supplied with
PROvision Touch.
Video Files
- Video Editing for Email - In addition to the previously discussed email methods, a video file can
be edited for email purposes. Using DVD movie software (Nero), files can be imported and edited.
The software can downsize the file type, or be used to trim away unnecessary parts.
Page 23
Battery Operation & Charging
BATTERY OPERATION
The Spartan PRO Touch is designed to operate using internal battery power or 110 /220 V AC
(household current). A fully charged battery will last approximately 4 hours. NOTE: Battery run time
will vary depending on whether the system is used in an enclosed space (low monitor brightness)
versus full daylight (max monitor brightness). The camera head light setting will also impact battery
life.
To check battery life, choose the “Systems Options” button on the main screen. The battery gauge will
display in the lower left hand corner.
If the battery reaches a low battery state (yellow gauge color), a low battery indicator will flash on the
screen. At this point, the system should be plugged into a power source. Once the battery reaches a
critically low power level, a red flashing display will come on the screen. At this point the system will
shut down due to power failure. Again, plug in the unit as soon as possible to avoid data loss.
IMPORTANT NOTE! When the low battery warning appears, end any video recording immediately.
If the power is lost during a recording session, the video file will be un-readable and can not
be recovered.
BATTERY CHARGING
110 / 220 VAC – To charge the internal battery using a 110 / 220 V power source you will need
to uncoil the AC power cord (see fig.14-1) and plug the end into a AC electrical outlet. To check
the charging status, turn on the unit and choose the “Systems Options” button on the main
screen. Check the battery indicator in the lower lefthand corner. Once the batteries are fully
charged, the battery charger will automatically switch to trickle charge.
Battery Recharge Time: Approximately 6-8 hours. The unit may be left off during charging.

Operating Instructions
1. Flip the lid up and lift the monitor to the desired viewing location.
2. Switch the power on (you will have to lift the monitor to access the power switch). The system will
begin booting. After the Spartan Tool logo appears on the screen, the main screen overlay will
appear.
3. Insert camera and push-cable into pipe opening.
4. Adjust the light intensity of the camera head pressing the Camera Lights button and adjusting the
intensity slider bar.
5. To use the distance counter, tap the distance counter box to open the small menu box. Press RESET
to zero the counter. The display will read 0.00 f (feet) and 0.00 m (meters). NOTE: When pulling
the push-cable out of the reel, the distance will increase. Pushing the push-cable back into the
reel will cause the distance to decrease.
6. System is now ready for pipe inspection.
Operational Tips
 If you get stuck in a line, try to rotate the push-cable by hand first clockwise then counter-clockwise.
 The use of a lubricating agent on the push-cable itself can often increase the distance you are able
to push the unit. Be certain to abide by all regulations regarding the use of oils (such as vegetable
or mineral oils) or other lubricating additives down drain lines. Also, if a lubricating agent is being
used, be sure to clean push-cable before it is loaded back into the system.
 Consider using a water repellant (such as Rain-X®) on the camera lens if you are experiencing
fogging or water spotting on the camera lens in wet lines.
 If glare appears in the pipe, reduce the light intensity.
Page 27
Maintenance
The Spartan PROvision Touch is designed for easy maintenance and trouble free operation. Regular
maintenance will prolong the life of the product. Follow these simple procedures:
 Do not store outdoors and do not allow the unit to sit for extended periods in a hot environment such
as a truck or automobile in bright sunlight.
 Never operate in standing water.
 After each inspection, always wash camera head while fully attached to the flex-link/push-cable.
Immersing the camera head independently may allow water to gather in the camera and cloud the
picture.
 The connectors may accumulate dirt on the pins with prolonged system use. Use a cotton swab
impregnated in a drop of standard alcohol to clean them. Normally a clean pin inserted in the
receptacle will wipe the internal contact and make a good connection. If this does not suffice, a
drop of alcohol can be inserted in the bad contact hole to clean it.
 Keep all connector threads clean to ensure proper tightness and mechanical connection.
 Wash the push-cable, flex-link, and camera head when the inspection is complete. Inspect the
clean push-cable for damage such as peel off, deep scratches, cracks, kinks, or any other signs of
failure.
Caution: Never use a damaged push-cable even if the system appears to function properly.
Even the smallest drop of water that penetrates will eventually corrode the wires and
produce shorts and malfunctions. Do not use electrical or other type of tape to cover a
crack or tear in any push-cable of this system.
 Wipe the camera lens cover clean with soft cloth. The cover is constructed of special scratchresistant, high-impact sapphire, and provides maximum transparency under adverse inspection
environment conditions.
Monitor position holding force is adjusted by
tightening/loosening of screws using a 5/32
hex key.
