If I use a 750 with basic guidance to mark bad bits in some drains and don't need to go back to them for 5 years will satellite drift change where I have marked by any great distance or will it stay within a given distance ? . Busy repairing some poor work done 5 years ago and need to mark where other drains join in if I can
Thanks

It'll still be somewhere near, drift isn't accumulative, it can go one way one day and come back again the next.

thanks graybo , That might make it easier if it needs doing again
The guy that tied in the old drains to the new pushed the pipes so far in to the new one that it all choked up , I want to mark the joins but hopefully repaired properly wont ever need them

silicone might be a job to clean out of the threads every time
tape would do the job if plugs not available

Yes you can get screw on caps, not sure where from, :scratch: , couldn't find any
on RS components website.
We went through a phase of using them, just use tape now.
