Have you ever wanted to drill into a floor or wall and not known if there are any pipes running underneath/behind it? Well with a thermal imaging camera you should be able to determine if there is anything in the floor or wall that may get hit should you starting drilling. Used in the same way as leak detection a survey of the area would be carried out to determine if there is any pipes that may be in the vicinity of where you want to drill. A quick scan of the area can save you costly repair bills by avoiding hitting a pipe. Works best with heating or hot pipes but again even with cold pipes there maybe a temperature difference between the pipe and the surrounding area that can be picked up by the thermal imaging camera.
