Will it check for moisture in drywall that might cause mold. How about carpeting?

Asked by: Bunny
Drywall does have a high water content normally, it will tell you if your moisture level is above what is correct. It should read carpet and pad also...

Customer Reviews

Phone Works Moisture Meter is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 142.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from First and last time Ryobi customer Bought this yesterday because I needed a meter ASAP. I set it up following each step of the directions. The first issue was the app would crash. The second issue was it wouldn't calibrate the proper hardware through the app. The third issue was when it did connect to the app, it would read the battery had no charge. (Tried new battery, same thing) The fourth issue was when it did finally show that a battery was present, it wouldn't read any moisture and my phone froze (Phone is brand new) Had I not tried this at my house before going to the customers house, I would most likely have lost a customer and looked pretty silly. Not sure why Home Depot is still stocking this item with so many bad reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this meter to monitor the moisture content on drying wood I use for bowls and furniture.... I bought this meter to monitor the moisture content on drying wood I use for bowls and furniture. I chose this model because it has the ability to track and graph the moisture content over time within the app. Although the meter would be more difficult to use over a stand alone meter I thought this feature would be worth it. The app is advertised to work with the android phone model I have but when I used the meter with my phone according to the instructions the phone would only occasionally recognize the meter. Sometimes the phone would recognize the meter, but no data would be transmitted to the phone. Eve nthe battery indicator did not work. Every once in a while I would get some readings, but it would take much tinkering and when there was a connection to the phone it would take a good 20-30 seconds to get a reading. I have multiple phone models in the house and I tried all of them with consistently inconsistent results. After several months of trying to figure out the problem with my phone I finally gave up and took the meter back to the store to exchange it for another. When I tried the second meter my results were the same as the first. Needless to say, with all of these problems, I have not used the data graphing function even, and I will likely buy another model in the near future that is easier to use and that does not require a phone. It is a good idea with a poor execution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'm not sure if it was the product or if it was the purchase, order did online went to the store ... I'm not sure if it was the product or if it was the purchase, order did online went to the store to pick it up even though the package was already opened once. Tried it at home seems like it didn't operate the way that I thought that it should, so I returned it to the store for a refund. Never reordered product because it wouldn't come in time of what project I needed it for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money I experienced the same error message trying to set-up an account. Battery reads zero with new battery right out of the box. Drove to the store to buy new battery same result. Get error messages in app trying to find manual. Website is useless - manual only offered with the non-functioning app. Feel like a sucker for purchasing - very disappointed in Ryobi.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work. Connected to the app, but wouldn’t record... Did not work. Connected to the app, but wouldn’t record any readings. Battery light kept showing dead AAA battery. Replaced battery and indicator showed dead battery. Should have known not to buy this meter because my brother-in-law had also bought one of these meters and it didn’t work.

I had to open it at home and then realize that it wouldn't work on my phone. Luckily I could use my wifes phone. So now to use the item I have to find my wife to borrow her phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work. App drains battery on Galaxy s7. Ryobi app has a constant red battery icon in the lower right corner. Change out battery with new one, same result. Returning to Home Depot for refund. Just more technological crap that doesn't work.

I love the theorem and idea but it don't work plain and simple. The only negative review I have for a Ryobi tool...
