I have water leaking in the basement behind existing drywall. Will I be able to detect the crack location/direction using this without having to rip out the drywall??
Asked by: Anonymous
Not likely. The meter works only when the surface being tested is porous and in direct contact with moisture. If this were the case, you would see the evidence with your own eyes. Even if you detect moisture you cant pinpoint a contact with any precision.

On walls that are reading dry why do I always get a beep on wall corners? Is this a glitch or are corners naturally wet?

Asked by: Tonyastro
I took mine back and got one with pins and it works much better. Kept getting lots of bad readings with pinless meter
