TIP: leak detectors

Leak detectors. Leak detection is complex, time consuming and sometimes expensive, especially if the leak is thought to be in imbedded concrete. Instruct a specialist leak detecting company such as Leakbusters.net

TIP: detecting dampness deep

Detecting dampness deep within a wall in radio frequency mode. Meters can’t differentiate moisture from other dense matter such as metal and concrete. They help trace damp in a normal, homogeneous wall. Readings below 300 REL indicate that a wall is dry below the surface, 999 REL is the limit. These meters are for scanning and profiling.
