The Surveymaster incorporates two modes of operation (Search and Measure) that enable the user to distinguish surface moisture from sub-surface moisture, essential information when trying to establish the extent and cause of a moisture problem.

The Search Mode is used to assess the moisture level beneath the surface of solid walls and floors independently of surface conditions. The nominal depth of the measurement is 3/4" (19mm) this depends on the density and other characteristics of the material. When held against the surface, as shown below, the instrument transmits a signal into the material. The relative moisture level is shown on the digital display and its moisture condition is shown on the accompanying scale of color-coded lights. This measurement presentation helps the user to:

  • Look for moisture behind wall and floor coverings, such as tile and vinyl
  • Assess, in relative terms, if the material is in a dry, borderline or damp condition
  • Map the extent of the problem numerically
  • Not adversely affected by surface moisture such as condensation
  • Non-invasive Pinless radio frequency finds moisture at depth where moisture is not always directly visible up to 3/4" (25.4 mm) below the surface
  • This mode of measurement is not adversely affected by the presence of surface moisture

Applications: Shower pans, behind ceramic tile, fine finishes, water stains, tile and vinyl floor coverings, joists, around toilets, drywall, below grade floors and walls, plaster, masonry, concrete and concrete block.

The Measure Mode is used to measure the moisture level at the surface and at incremental depth, when used with the auxiliary deep wall probes. Measure mode readings are precise and specific to the immediate area of contact of the electrodes. The actual moisture content of wood is shown on the digital display with the corresponding moisture condition shown on the accompanying scale of color-coded lights. Wood Moisture Equivalent (WME) values are shown for other non-conductive, porous building materials
  • Pin-type probes measure moisture in wood and other building materials (use provided calibration chart for more precise readings)
  • Detects moisture directly in materials and below wall and floor coverings such as tile, wood and vinyl
  • Deep wall probes establish the presence of moisture in wall cavity insulation, sub and surface structures
  • Assess, in relative terms, if the material is in a dry, borderline or damp condition
  • Pin measurement moisture range (WME): 7% to 99%
  • Max. needle penetration: 0.4" (10mm)

What our customers say...

one of the better meters I have used. Fast reading and even works in 132 degrees in side a stucture. this temp is verifed through Water out. Iwish all of are techs. had this meter. Gary with Abracadabra restoration.
