It enables you to pinpoint the exact location of plumbing, wiring, structure, dead bodies and hidden loot within the walls. I have been told it works amazingly well.

Sounds interesting; I wonder if it would work with an ipad for those of us who don't have a smart phone?

Yup, ceiling in basement and family room as well as some walls. There is a drop section to the ceiling in our laundry room and I suspect some of the plumbing for the upstairs bathrooms is in there as well. Not a fun job. Maybe just cross our fingers and hope for the best.
The leak we just had was nothing to do with the pipes but a leaking valve on the washing machine. It just got us thinking.

Yeah , "thinking" .

If you have the loot , do it for the piece of mind I guess..

If you're never EVER going to leave that place it's worth it .

Our kitty-corner neighbours had 2 or 3 emergency restoration vehicles parked out back a few days back. Neighbour to the side of me went through a nasty restoration after a pipe broke and flooded the basement. I am waiting for my turn now.

What year was their houses built? I am interested because I may have to replace mine very soon as well. I have all Poly B plumbing (Grey plastic pipe).

Those are pre-poly B plumbing. Do they have galv./steel piping?
