Iv'e never used one but I think it is a good idea talking about masnory I was invoveld in a new lowe's hardware were the block was to wet(or it could have been a leak from the roofers we never found out) and we filled and painted anyway about 6 months later after everything was moved in shelves and all the paint started falling off the wall everybody was trying to sue everybody. this was years ago it never was fixedI use a Delmhorst BD-2000. You can get them through KTA-Tator out of Pittsburg Pa. or Florida. The Pa. # is(412) 788-1300. This model is not cheap, around $500 if I remeber right but it has paid for itself many times over. I use it mostly on concrete block prior to starting block-filler in the spring and fall. More and more we are seeing pumped in foam in exterior walls and they take forever to dry out.
I don't leave home w/o itIt's a probe type and they sell them at Sherwinn Williams.
