Re: OT: X-band doppler water leak detection
In my experience, the PEX pipe used in in-floor hydronic heating systems is intimately close to the special concrete in which the pipe is embedded. I would guess that there is little or no turbulence associated with the leak, which means that detection by acoustic means won't work.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The thermal imager idea is a good one. One possible source of a good thermal imager is your local fire district - if you can convince them to lend you a firefighter and their imager, you may be able to locate the leak. The floor covering would probably have to be something that conducts heat well, though - if the floor is carpeted, thermal imaging probably wouldn't work.
