Using a moisture metre as an aid during property inspections

There are a number of aids that will allow you to carry out a property inspection properly, thoroughly and efficiently, and one of these is a moisture meter.

Interior water leaks can cause substantial damage if not identified early, and during an inspection you should take steps to monitor the levels of moisture present in the floor. Moisture meters are used to measure this. They can detect otherwise hidden leaks from kitchen, bathroom and hot water systems. This measurement allows you to find out whether the moisture levels in a given floor location are appropriate, or if further investigations need to be made.  Read more here


Good news for all members - discounts on a wider range of products.

The two NZPIF accounts at Bunnings have been moved to the new Family Tree model. This gives customers a discount across a wider range of product (approx. 40k products compared with current discount structure 9k products discounted). Due to this new pricing model, members may notice price differences from the old discount structure. This new model is best for organisations that purchase across the whole store, not just building materials. Bunnings understands this will better benefit the NZPIF group.
