What is an Evaporation Control ? - Is your shower's flood test leaking or not?

The only way to measure evaporation in your shower's flood test is with an Evaporation Control.

    A simple site build rig that measures the rate of evaporation. Some pointers to help you set this right.

    The coin shows the key step to the evaporation control. It is measuring the water level in this shower flood test.

    Anything can help set the control. A baking dish, an old tool box - something water tight. I like to tip the stack of coins the same way in the evaporation control and then teach the clients how to read this test.
