Q:Can I use it to test moisture level of concrete subfloors
by|Aug 17, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  No, concrete is too conductive for our sensors to take accurate measurements of. A specific "concrete" moisture meter is required.

    Q:what is the % reading on wood and concrete to be able to paint
    by|Aug 13, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  That would be dependent on they type of wood used. This question would be better answered by a painter or construction professional. This unit is unable to scan moisture in concrete due to its high conductivity.

      Q:Would it test mold in a carpet?
      by|Jul 21, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  This device does not detect mold specifically. It can only detect how much moisture is in the carpet. High moisture can result in mold, but it does not automatically mean mold is present. Therefore, this device can detect moisture in carpet but cannot detect mold.

          My house was flooded and it came in very handy. Very easy to operate. I was able to determine when the wood was dry enough to start repairs.

          Purchased this meter today to prep for laying wood flooring. I doubted its accuracy based on some of the reviews so I kept the receipt. I called a family friend who does flooring as a profession and asked him to use his meter to gauge the moisture in our subfloor. He used a Delmhorst meter. The percentages were exactly the same. This one was priced as listed. He stated that the one he has was a couple hundred. I'd say for a DYIer it's an effective and reliable tool. Added a few pics to show different applications as well as a non-typical application.

          Easy to use and works great. Used it to determine moisture content of hardwood and subfloor before installation. Also worked well at a friend's house to identify and track down high moisture content in drywall.

          Avoid this one
          I've only had this for a few months and all of a sudden, the readings looked off, all over the place. When I turned it on, it was giving me numbers (just reading the air), it shouldn't be doing that. Upon inspection, I found the top piece with the reader on it had a gap. Looking deeper, inside there are 2 tiny little pins that broke off. Those little pins are just too tiny and weak. This thing is useless now.

            Good Moisture tester
            Does what I need it to do. I have nothing to test it against so I can't say it's 100% accurate but it gets me close enough. Easy to use. I would recommend it.
