    i made a sonde from an irrigation valve solenoid, pull the plunger out and insert the solenoid on the end of the fishtape. drawback is the solenoid has to have 2 wires attached to operate it.

    I have the dynatel sonde and have never tried it. What does attaching a solenoid to the end of the snake do?

    Depending on what frequency it is you follow it when you push it down a pipe like a sewer lateral and follow it from entry to where the clog or to the street. I have used one with my Rd for years. I also use a metal fish tape to locate a sewer lateral.
