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.

Pin-Type Digital Moisture Meter with LCD Display is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53.

I have checked a spot that gave me a reading then rechecked it minutes later & the meter failed to show a reading or will display a reading then quickly decreases to no reading. I used the meter to check the roof rafters that were leaking & framing around windows as well as the stone wall of my building using the appropriate mode. I also have used a fresh battery on the 5 occasions that I have used the Meter.

A couple of times, after being unable to get a reading on rough cut lumber that I know is above the low end threshold, I have needed to run a test check. I am then able to get a reliable moisture metering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and accurate I bought this a month ago so I could measure moisture content in live edge slabs I cut with my portable sawmill. Accuracy varies with thicknesses of slabs, but all In all it’s great for estimating readiness for workable wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as advertised use it on my firewood. Will have to find replacement pins as I force it pretty much to get an accurate reading, but I can separate dryer wood to burn in my not-so-dry pile of wood. extremely fast shipping.
