DIY Money Saving Magic with Wood Moisture Meter for DIY Repairs

Personal_Finance / Home Maintenance May 07, 2019 - 08:41 AM GMT

Here's how a cheap moisture meter can save you a lot of time and money in DIY repairs. For instance we bought a cheap meter from Amazon for just £14 (https://amzn.to/2GZZnlA) to test the boards on a 10 year old decking so that we don't unnecessarily replace good boards, better to get the job all done in one go rather than having to revisit a few months later.

The Moisture meter has 4 sharp prongs, It basically works by sticking the prongs into wood and then gives a percentage moisture reading, anything over 20% means the woods likely rotting, most wood should read less than 20%. I tested it on a tree and it came back at 40%. The dry deck boards generally gave 0%-5% readings so were fine. 1 board that needed replacing underside was giving readings of over 30%!


The moisture meter proved good value for money as it saved me having to get extra deck boards that I didn't need. Also is a handy gadget to have on hand for future DIY work. Definitely a must have in every DIYers tool box.

The Moisture Meter is by Airsson and cost £14 from Amazon - https://amzn.to/2GZZnlA

Full specs :

Digital Wood Moisture Meter, Handheld LCD Moisture Tester Damp Meter, Humidity Detector with 4 Test Probe Pins One 9V Battery for Logs Firewood Humidity Measuring Range 5%-40%,Accuracy: 1%

Features:
- Digital large size LCD display with 4pcs test probe pins
- Essential for a wood burner.
- Get this meter to ensure the moisture content of logs you are burning on your multi stove is not too high. Get your log (or piece of wood) and press the two probes into chosen item.
- Works well detecting moisture content of your fire wood for wood burners. Won't tar up your chimney or ruin your expensive new wood burner any more, and really prevents tar build up in your stove from "wet" and unseasoned logs.
- Great kit for new log burners and no experience of burning logs to measure the water content of self seasoned firewood. Simple to use, feels nice to the touch.
- You need to push the prongs into the wood to get an accurate reading, and the spikes of the meter is strong enough both for seasoned hard wood and soft ones.

- Range: 5% to 40%
- Resolution:1%
- Data hold
- Low Battery Indication
- Power by 1x 9V 6F22 battery (included)

2. Please keep the meter dry and clean so as to insure the accuracy.
3. When the sign "- + " is displayed on the screen, it indicates that the battery voltage is low.
4. Removed the battery if don't use it for a long time.
