Overall Rating: 3 out of 5

Difficult to read the meter when the probe is in place. What do the readings mean anyway? Couldn't find the promised 'Detecting Damp guide' on their website. So not a very useful tool.

Any chance anyone could reply to these questions about what the required percentages should be?

Totally agree with other reviews I was expecting higher readings, max. 2% seems pointless and the instructions assume we know how to read them. I have been told that a 5-10 % reading is regarded as OK so you can see why I am confused. Sorry am going back to the store for a refund.

I would give a 5 star rating but as other comments have stated there is no guide as to what percentages are deemed to be acceptable or at what point you have a problem.

Seems to work alright - but the instructions give no clue as to how to interpret the readings. Also the display zeros as soon as you take it away from the place you are measuring, so you have to be looking at the display as you are taking the reading, which high on a wall can be challenging! Looking on websites about damp a 5% damp area is not deemed to be as serious issue - the instructions say it only measures up to 2% - I need an explanation as to how to interpret the readings.
