    Customer Reviews:

    • Works!
      Bought this to check out some potential water incursion 'issues' at the house and found the unit functioned as advertised. Useful to find damp drywall but probably not adequate for commercial/industrial needs. Average homeowner gives the thumbs up! ...more info
    • Pay a little, test a lot
      It's amazing, but you literally can pay 10 times more (over $250!) for a moisture test meter that does the same job as this nifty device for under 30 bucks! The Sonin 50211 Rapitest Moisture Test Meter is not only a bargain, but a vital, handy tool to determine if moisture levels in your wood, rugs, walls etc. are so high that your property is endangered. I bought my Rapitest to make sure when a new pressure-treated deck has dried out enough for me to seal it, and the Rapitest is my guarantee that the sealing will not be rejected by too-wet wood.
      Rapitest is inexpensive insurance for your valuable property, and operates with reliability on a simple 9-volt battery. --Mike Thompson (Miami, Florida)...more info
    • This product is useful to help avoid mold and water damage!
      This moisture meter has been so helpful around the house, to help monitor water intrusion and thus, prevent mold and damage. It works really well, is easy to use, and is inexpensive!...more info
    • Pretty easy to use
      Very friendly and easy to use. I used it in my Home Inspection with excellent results...more info
    • A Good Cheap Moisture detector
      I own a water damage restoration business [...] and we keep these units around for stand by units. They are accurate but not very sturdy. At this price you can break 10 of them and its still cheaper than the "other leading brand"...more info
    • Fair functionality, Disposable quality..
      My device came from Amazon with a faulty probe connector, but I noticed the problem 2 months too late (after just a couple uses, but after taking readings with the device). Hopefully Sonin RMA can just send me a new probe cable as I used a continuity tester to diagnose the problem. Their performance remains to be seen..

      As a test I would hold the probe against conduit or metal ducting to make sure it is reading properly (needle @ 10, pegged to right), then move the probe connector to be sure that the connection is not intermittent. Also don't leave it on, or put it in a box where it can get turned on, it will chew through a 9V battery in a couple days no problem. A disapointment, even at this price......more info
    • bang for the buck
      I'm a paint contractor so it's important to know and be able to show the customer surfaces are dry enough to paint. I've been using a moisture meter I paid around $100 for ten years ago. This meter is at least as accurate. For my purposes it does the job and $25 is a great price. I don't know how durable it is but for occasional use it feels rugged enough. ...more info
