Hunting Down a Water Leak
It's buried deep in the house and has grown steadily worse until the homeowner can no longer ignore it. It's a water leak that Matt Risinger is helping his friend diagnose on this edition of Risinger Goes Rogue.With absolute candor and an honest willingness to show what it takes - even if it means chasing dead ends, creating a mess, or causing a small flood - Risinger gives us a real-world look at hunting down and fixing a water leak. Along the way, we get a good look at the Flir MR160 Imaging Moisture Meter in action, and take away a few humble reminders of how the materials and methods we choose when remodeling can have some not-so-great, long-term impacts.
