Leak Detection using Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging/ Infrared Leak Detection

We use thermal imaging cameras to assist in the diagnosing and detecting of leaks, and for locating hot water pipework in a non-invasive, fast and efficient manner.

Our thermal imaging equipment allows us to measure and detect the changes in surface temperature that is being investigated. These temperature changes are not visible to the naked eye. By identifying surface temperature changes we can pinpoint leaks under concrete slabs, in walls, ceilings and behind tiled surfaces.

Our thermal imaging cameras allow us to locate leaks where there is no physical evidence of any water damage.

Thermal imaging also allows us to track the extent of damage to the affected area, as often the leak is never at the point of the visible damage.

Leak located in ceiling space

These photos show the thermal image of the affected ceiling where water damage has occurred throughout the entire room. The thermal imaging camera indicates the area where the exact location of the leak is in the ceiling.




Leak located in bathroom wall

These photos show the thermal image of a bathroom wall where a leak has been located.

Locating hot water pipes using the thermal imaging camera

These images clearly show the hot water pipework in the wall of a bathroom. By using the thermal imaging camera to locate the pipework, cut ins and connections can be made with minimum damage to the walls. This is also important when needing to make penetrations in walls where additional pipework may be installed.
