Your protocol appears to be inconsistent. Why test one and not the other? Neither is part of the minimalist's SOP.

[QUOTE=cevans;2019043]Guess you never found any that leak either. No leaky shower pans either. Funny how that works, an inspector doesn't find what he doesn't look for.[/QUOTE]


That same thought works for water meters and gas meters

I test them all and document with IR when they leak and when they don't leak. If there is a tiled shower stall in the home there will be a digital and a IR image in my report of every side of the stall that is visible. Had one last week that I was able to view all four sides of the stall, don't happen very often usually when the stall is in the middle of a wrap around walk in closet. Its called CYA

Nice! Very appropriate response..
I am newly certified, but been in construction for 20 years. I want to add thermal to my list of services, but not sure what camera to get. I know you get what you pay for, so what camera was this one?
Thanks!

That was a FLIR T400 high-temp with lots of miles on it.
