Good News!  EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) is a synthetic rubber waterproofing commonly used on roofs.  Once thought to be incompatible with (electric field vector mapping system), due to too much black carbon interference, now has compatible grey and white versions!  

What does this mean?  It means that if you want to use EPDM waterproofing under your green roof you can also have the piece of mind by having one of the most accurate leak detection systems installed as well!  In many cases the leak detection system is cheaper than the waterproofing warranty as well.
