    Default Thermal Camera?

    Hi guys,

    Last two big thundershowers I noticed some water in my basement, small amount, maybe 1 cup total, close to my electrical box. It appeared the water originated somewhere at the bottom initially as everything up top was dry, but today I got another chance to take a look and it seems like it's travelling down a bundle of wires, and dropping off the wire. I did some further digging and removed some stuffed insulation and I can see one of the trusses up top is a little wet. The location of all of this wetness is close to where all the utilities enter the house, but not exactly in that spot, maybe a foot to the left. Last two thunderstorms were very horizontal and the side of my house was completely soaked. I think perhaps the water is making it's way somewhere down the side of the house and eventually gathering in that spot, but without ripping out siding and all that, it's hard to tell.

    I know that thermal cameras are very good at picking up water. Does anyone have one I can borrow, as a standalone unit or a phone attachment, or know where I might be able to rent one for a short period of time?

    Some libraries have had them to check out for free. Not sure if there are any in calgary that do but its worth a call around. If you can afford it though, one of those phone ones for a couple hundred are handy to have.

    My mom has one of these we don't use that we should probably sell. It was only used a few times. Mostly to check if her turtles were dead or just lazy.

    Damn, that's a fancy FLIR one, too rich for my blood. Don't foresee a future use myself so don't really want to invest at the moment into something like this.

    The library ones are booked months in advance but yes they do have them. Its one tool thats part of a "Home Energy Kit". I know the YEG libraries carry. I'd imagine YYC library would as well

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.
