  • Infrared Camera

    Is there anyone out there that has one besides me? Do you charge extra for it? So far it is helping me with everything but wonder if I need to be charging for it.

      something tells me that he was referring to a handheld i/r camera that he uses to locate heat loss.

          I use it to compliment my leak detection for the most part. It helps track down recirc loops in commercial amps. Then I can determine hot/cold from the ground. Overkill for line tracing but it helps. I use it for comparing pumps in commercial. Nice to find manifolds in the walls....unless in a tub wall. Heat doesn't build up well for detection without cutting the wall open.

                  That is friggin awesome. I didn't realize the rented equipment like that at a hardware store. It would be a pain for me to run there every time I wanted/needed it.

                      The prices have become reasonable. I like mine. There is still a lot I need to learn and a lot of free classes you can take on Flirs website. I would recommend this brand due to cost by comparison that I had done.

                              My friend has the large Ridgid SeeSnake, black & white with the gray pushrod. Are these still retermable ?
