Customer Questions & Answers

Will this meter measure moosture in a concrete slab?

I have hairline cracks in my foundation. And i want to measure the moisture in the slab
Asked by: Billy
The manual makes no mention of measurements in concrete because this is a Pin-type meter. The pins need to be pushed into the material being measured, and you can't push the pins into concrete. Therefore, moisture "in" the slab cannot be measured. But if there is standing water on top of the slab, the meter will detect it, but in that case you could see and feel the water anyhow. If you can get the pins into your hairline cracks, you might be able to get a reading, but only as deep as the pins (about 1/3 of an inch). To get an accurate moisture measurement "in" concrete, foundation crews drill out a core plug about 1" in diameter and send it to a facility for analysis.

Will this device give me a moisture reading in my stucco on the front of my house if I drill 2 small holes w/masonry bit

Asked by: george
You may get a reading, but its value is questionable because readings should always be taken at several different spots in the area. The reading you get from your 2 small holes may not be indicative of the moisture content elsewhere.

Pin-Type Digital Moisture Meter with LCD Display is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I've used this a couple of times now and it's so easy. All you do is turn it on, push the pins into the wood, and read the results. It includes a test to confirm it's calibrated correctly and mine was spot on right out of the box. My neighbor has already asked to borrow it when he goes to the lumber mill. I highly recommend this product.

Calibrates consistently to amount stated in directions, and gives consistent readings to a range of boards with varying moisture content. I doubt there's another instrument that can approach the consistency of this meter for the price. Obviously I recommend it from the two months I've had and used the meter. Arrived one day earlier than they estimated.
