Looking to purchase a camera to determine source of water leaks. This is the sole purpose of the camera.
As such I do not have a high budget for a camera. My business is only 2 years old and most of the leaks I have been able to diagnose with my eyes and head.
If the Flir i3, i5 or i7 will get the job done I would make the purchase. I’ve noticed that those cameras are intended for novices, home owners, beginners, etc. Nonetheless, if they will enable me to determine that a leak is from the shower supply and not an issue of bad caulking; that a leak is from a faulty roof and not a burst pipe; a leaky waste line and not a leaky supply line, etc then I would go for it.
Also, I understand that much of the diagnosing is in the users ability and not the camera itself. So with experience and online courses perhaps one of these cameras suffice? Or are these cameras not good enough that I’ll still be scratching my head?
Or are y’all gonna tell me to hold off for a few years and just dish off these difficult jobs to another company, as I’ve done a couple of times…
Appreciate the suggestions.
