As part of our building pathology expertise, we recently helped a client identify a leak to a heating pipe buried within the floor screed of a flat beneath several layers of flooring.

We used a FLIR thermal imaging camera to establish the location and flow of hot water into the heating system from the boiler, and identified a leak to a welded copper pipework joint in the buried pipework. This saved the managing agent both time and costs and enabled the repair to be undertaken quickly without significant destruction of the property internally.
