    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every plumber should have one I bought this meter online 2 weeks ago. It was delivered in 7 days (I could have used it sooner). I paid $400 to a plumber for 2 inspections and he could identified the cause of a leak in a shower. After my meter arrived, it helped me narrow down the source of the leak in 2 minutes. You should consider buying this meter before calling a plumber. Or you should make sure the plumber you are asking to inspect and investigate the leak has this meter.

My previous pinless meter had the pad on the back side making it difficult to hold in certain locations, especially trying to take a picture at the same time. Seems much more accurate as well. Makes my job inspecting homes much easier

The meter came ready to go from the package after installing the batteries. The meter was easy to use after reading the short instructions. I like the fact that it doesn't do any damage to the material that you're testing; you just simply place the metal ball against the material after first "calibrating" the unit. The unit has to go through a "calibration" every time you use it. It only takes maybe 5 seconds and then it's ready for use. The only thing I'm not sure of is how far from the calibration area (where the unit was held during the calibration procedure) will the unit still give accurate readings. The instructions do say that if you change your hand position on the meter or move away from the calibration area, you have to rerun the calibration mode again. So it seems like I'm calibrating it just before each reading. I'm not sure if this is necessary or not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suprised me with the accuracy While this device looks like some physics spark generator, it works much better than I anticipated. I tried wood from full kiln dry up to 1 month dried fresh cut lumber and it tracked right in line with my quality pin based meter. The only difference seemed to be that this didn't leave holes. I wasn't expected as good of results, but now I use this over my pin meter most of the time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non-invasive, easy to use. If you are interested in tracking a water problem or leak, or other type of moisture problem, but don't want to tear holes in everything, try this. An easy-to-use pinless moisture meter. The Extech MO257 Moisture Meter will discover and measure moisture content up to about 1.5 inches in depth without having to make holes in the surface. The meter has a large display, is easy to use, and comes with a case and good instructions. You even have a pocket on the front of the case where I keep the instructions. There is a Moisture Comparison Table in the instructions that will show you what type of moisture to expect in different types of materials. Each time you turn it on, it will calibrate itself. If you measure different materials, it is best to recalibrate again; just turn it off and back on. Check the specs as there are lots of features such as backlit display, Hold display, MAX and MIN settings, alarm, etc. It uses 3 AAA batteries which are already provided. You will need a screwdriver to change batteries. I used it on different surfaces, different materials and different rooms/areas. It is very sensitive and appears to be quite accurate. You will have to get used to the way it detects and what to expect under different uses. Moisture exists in a lot of places. You have to differentiate normal moisture from abnormal moisture. Hence the table in the instructions. Overall a great tool for inspectors, contractors, and others seeking moisture problems using non-invasive methods.
