You're such a diplomat, JK! But it is difficult to take them on- we can only act on the information we have at hand.

I know of a manufacturer here (carpet) which actually says to test RH via the insulated hood method, but not ASTM2420- an older one which specifies 16 hours for equillibrium. This method was devised for the old analogue "hair" hygrometers which needed 16 hours to absorb the moisture. Even worse, this manufacturer actually shuns ASTM F2170 saying "it's a US Standard and not in compliance with Australian Standards". Which is technically true, but only for their standard - the Aussie resilient standards have welcomed ASTM2170 with open arms. I'm guessing this manufacturer is on the committee which is baulking at adopting 2170 for the carpet standard.

So, if that's what their warranty says, then you gotta go test with a hood at 16 hours I guess!
