Substrate Odor

#15
JD,
What I am saying is that water moves from wet to dry. If water has found a convenient escape it will not seek another one until you block that escape. Once you do, it will seek the next most porous spot in the surface of the concrete to come up. Concrete slabs are not perfectly homogenous and the power trowel finishes are not perfectly uniform. Water moves in strange and mysterious ways. If it didn't, it would not be so hard to measure. If water simply went straight up through the slab from the entry point, we would have to do moisture tests every square foot to catch this, not every 1000 sqft.

Water (in greater quantities than what CCR is measuring) can most definitely move around sideways up and down throughout a slab. If I said I have seen it a hundred times in the last twenty two years I would not be exaggerating.

As I said, it is important to know that geographical differences can impact how you approach a problem.
