Carbide moisture testing

#5
Perhaps you misunderstand my position on carbide testing....

It is a soils test being spec'd by silicate pushers because they think they can fool people into believing it means something.

The way they are testing means nothing to anyone in the flooring industry.

As for CaCl testing, it is nearly worthless for determining the potential a floor has for failure. I'd rather put in 5 Wagners at a cost of $200 (including installation and reading) than 7 CaCl tests for the same cost, when the CaCl tests tell you nothing about the condition of the slab, and the results are unreliable.
