    How Can You Avoid Drilling Into Pipes And Power Cables?

    Countless lines are laid in every house, for example water and gas lines as well as electrical cable ducts. You probably don't know exactly where all these cables are when you start installing your TV wall mount.

    Actually, you shouldn't look for the lines at all, but for places between the lines. And these places are not always where you would expect them to be. There are a few general guidelines that should be mentioned here, but please note that even these are no guarantee of success:

    • It is unlikely that you will encounter gas or water pipes in partition walls, for example between a bedroom and the hallway. However, electrical wiring may very well have been laid in these walls, so please be careful!
    • Sockets provide an indication of the approximate location of the power lines. A proper electrician will lay the cables horizontally and vertically, but you can't always rely on that either. The shortest distance between two points is a straight line, which is why power lines sometimes run diagonally through the wall.
    • The simplest solution is to go to the hardware store and buy a cable detector. When you move this device along the wall, it will detect metal pipes and electrical wiring. The effectiveness of this type of device depends on the technology used, the wall thickness and the skill of the user.
