Thermal image camera water leak detector
Infrared imaging detects infrared light differences across surfaces not seen by the human eye.
When used as a method of water leak detection in a building the leak point may produce a cold or hot image (i.e. for cold water or hot water pipes) compared to the surrounding environment.
Thermal image has many uses besides water leak detection such as Night vision security; industrial plant maintenance inspection for overheating pumps, assessing loose electrical connections or detection of energy loss in buildings.
