do the pins have to inserted to check moisture in concrete?

do the pins have to inserted to check moisture in concrete?
Asked by: Mike
Hi, Mike. As one of the community members states, it will work better if they can be inserted into the material, but in cases like concrete, you will not be about to put them in completely. If a more accurate reading is needed, you may want to drill a whole as they suggested. We hope this information helps!

Totally useless! i bought it for use with the phone and for it's alleged convenience. The product information is inside - sealed - and that's when you discover it only works with SOME phones and SOME systems. Sitting on the desk now waiting for the next garage sale. Also - try doing the onine instructions? need a full day to get those clear enough to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product I've ever purchased from home depot, by a long shot This may be the worst product I have ever purchased. I purchased it at home depot today and will be returning it tomorrow. You can't use it without creating a ryobi account, you can only use it with one device, it appears to spy on you while you are using it, instead of a single hand held device now I have to use two at once with a cord in between them so both my hands are occupied, not accurate, very few materials to select from and too many button presses to get to functions, app locked up multiple times and required login information after starting again. This was the only moisture meter HD had and it would have been better to have none at all! I would have been slightly annoyed if they had no meter, I'm extremely frustrated now after dealing with this horrible HORRIBLE product!

The description says it works on IOS 7.1, but the app you must download says you need IOS 9. So we were not able to use with our current phone. We borrowed a phone just to try it out and it worked as far as we can tell. Returned and disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shame on you Ryobi and Homedepot Ryobi has never been known for quality, but an out of town trip for work to access damage to a building forced me to buy this since I left my quality moisture meter at home and this was the only thing that the Home Depot had in stock at 2 local stores. I should have guessed something was up when I saw that there were 5 on the rack and you could tell that everyone except the one I bought had been opened and then the package taped back together like they had all been returned. (Shame on you Home Depot for putting these back on the shelf or even carrying these.) The only thing positive I can say is the concept of what they are supposed to do is a good idea like recording your location and taking a picture of the measurement, and being able to file readings and pictures into different folders. But fairy tales always sound good until reality sets in. Bottom line is that it does not work, sometimes it will register a reading sometimes it won't, it usually won't. When it does show a reading it shows completely different ones placed in the same spot. Sticking the prongs against my skin would give a reading anywhere from 0 to 75 and always a completely different number each time. The exact same result when you put the prongs in a glass of water. It will even read 0 sometimes in water! I realize it cost only 20 bucks but that's not the point. It's the fact that Ryobi sells a product that they know very well does not work based on every review I have ever read. And that Home Depot continues to carry this product when they know very well that they are deceiving people. Bottom line is don't buy this, it will not even work in an emergency situation where I only needed to get a few readings.

I saw the bad reviews and truthfully hoped as a youthful, app savvy person that wouldn't be frustrated with it. I also hoped that the reviews about it not working with iphone7 were old enough to have an app update. The directions are not very intuitive and it took me a while to use it, that is after I found an iPhone 6 to use for this as I have an iPhone7. Then I kept getting randomizing levels - it would be in the teens, then in the thirties, then zero then back in the teens without moving pins. I'd like to keep this and keep trying to measure the moisture in my walls, but will likely return it. Between it not working with my phone and not really sure which read is correct as they are all over the place, I'm probably going to have to return it. Any suggestions would be nice in the meantime, maybe I can be swayed to like it.
