Moisture Meter Leak Detection

Moisture meters are also known as damp meters and are used to detect leaks and water damage in buildings. 

Damp or Moisture meters are used to measure moisture content of walls, floors and ceilings. Damp meter readings play a critical role in tracing internal water leaks and structural building leaks.

Our leak detection engineers use both the Pinless moisture meters and Pin-Type to measure levels of damp in various building materials.


Moisture Meter Trace And Access Leak Detection

What is the use of a Moisture Meter in Leak Detection?

By measuring the moisture content of walls, floors, and ceilings our qualified and experienced leak detection engineers can identify areas where water may be seeping in or leaking from to cause water damage. Our engineers create a moisture map to map out where moisture is throughout your property.

A Damp meter works by using two pins or probes that are inserted into the material being tested. The pins or probes send a small electrical current through the material, which measures its resistance to the electrical flow.

Dry building materials have high resistance to electrical flow. Wet materials have a low resistance to electrical flow. The moisture meter measures this resistance and displays the moisture content as a percentage on its screen.

Where Do Damp Meters Help Trace A Leak?
