The HydroSensor Moisture Probe is designed to detect moisture in carpets, cushion, floors, walls, and furniture. When the probe tips on the HydroSensor are pushed into materials to penetrate the surface, an electric current is sent between the probes. The amount of moisture present in the material determines how easily the electrical current passes from one probe to the other. When moisture is present in a material, the light on the HydroSensor will flash and the transducer will beep. This will occur at a varying rate (slower or faster flash and beep) depending on the amount of moisture present. The 2.2cm probe tips are long enough to penetrate shag carpets, cushion, and flooring materials. With care, the HydroSensor can also be used to find moisture in furniture, walls, and ceiling materials. The HydroSensor will also detect the presence of urine residues in carpet and cushion. This is because urine salts attract and hold enough moisture to be detected. A black-light is recommended to confirm that urine is present.
