FLIR Thermal Camera

We at SEIPL, 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

Key highlights of thermal imager in plumbing industry;

  • Locating hot and cold concealed pipes
  • Tracing of leaking concealed pipes
  • Locating source of dampness in walls and ceiling
  • Search for roof leakages
  • Locating floor heating wires in bathrooms
  • Testing of solar water panels
  • Testing hot water temperature
  • Leak located in ceiling space

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.

Leak located under Kitchen Sink:
