Test Equipment (Building Inspection)

John uses a Digital surface/penetration Moisture Meter to test the following areas for excess moisture that can cause water damage and attract termites

   ⎯ the face of sheeting over internal retaining walls.
   - kitchen / bathroom / ensuite toilet areas
   - the timber smooth edge strips under carpet edges adjacent these areas.

  • The meter used is a GE Protimeter Survey Master for measuring the moisture level of non-conductive and porous construction materials.

    It has two modes of operation:

    • Search
    • Measure
  • The Survey Master incorporates a Digital display showing percentage moisture content and is synchronised with a colour coded LED scale. The digital display shows the actual percentage or relative moisture level of the material under investigation.
  • This Digital penetration measuring facility is considered the most accurate. Not many inspectors use a Digital penetration moisture meter like this. Most meters used are surface reading meters which are considered less accurate.
