Finding water pipes in the wall


Is there any type of tool that helps you find water pipes in finished walls? For instance, if I were going to attach a grab bar in a bathroom area, I was wondering if there were any tools to make sure I didn't hit a water pipe.

Thanks.

Some stud finders can find metal pipes also.
