Ray..all due respect..r.h. probes cannot measure the internal volume of water..the exact porosity of the concrete has to be known first..which is a virtual impossibility. The most concerning factor is dewpoint, and the hood tests are, in my opinion, an overly complicated method of trying to figure it out.

Moisture meters are sufficient for that and much easier to understand. The hood again will tell you what the r.h. under the hood is..but..so what? If the pores are one gallon size as opposed to quart size (just to give an easy to illustrate example)..and the the amount of moisture measured under the hood is equal, would be much more saturated with smaller pores..a pint of water, the quart size pores are half full, a pint of water, the gallon size are only an 1/8th full..HUGE difference for the same amount of water volume..yet the humidity readings would NOT give an indication of this critical volume difference or it's relative effect on the concrete and the subsequent floor installation. In other words, there is no magic bullet...
