How can the course of the pipes in the wall heating surface be determined afterwards?

If a picture or, for example, a small wall shelf is to be fixed in the wall heating surface, the course of the pipes must be known in order to avoid damage to the pipe during installation.

To determine the course of the pipes there are different and in each case very simple possibilities:

  • Moisten the wall heating surface with a water atomizer from the plant care when the wall heating is switched off (the moisture does not harm the clay). Then switch on the wall heating and in no time you can see where the heating pipes run.
  • In the specialized market or on the Internet there are relatively cheap so-called thermo foils, which can be placed on the appropriate area. As with a thermal imaging camera, the course of the warm heating pipes becomes visible.
