Details

The Well Sounder 2010 PRO is a portable sonic water level meter designed to measure static water level in wells. The instrument uses sound waves to measure the distance from the top of the well to the water level, eliminating the need to lower anything into the well and preventing well contamination. Simply place the probe into a well cap vent opening and turn the unit on. Within seconds, the static water level measurement is displayed. With the press of a button, the instrument calculates and displays a variety of other information such as the total water in the well, rate of change, temperature, and battery voltage.

A built-in data logger can record up to 13,000 time stamped readings along with the well ID, temperature, and other associated measurements. The logger can be set to take measurements automatically at intervals between 1 and 60 minutes, or manually by pressing the log button on the keypad. The recorded data can be reviewed on the screen or downloaded to a computer for analysis using the serial RS-232 port or the included USB cable. Stored data is formatted in simple Windows-compatible text files sorted by well ID. Data can be easily copied from the instrument onto the computer and opened with almost any common program such as Word, Excel, or Notepad.

Other features of the Well Sounder 2010 PRO includes a power save mode which puts the unit to sleep between measurements when logging and turns the power off after a selected period of inactivity. If there are known defects in the well such as a rock fissure, simply set the measurement range minimum and maximum to ignore the interference. The multi-purpose bi-directional serial port can also be used to transmit data in real-time to a remote readout or logging device.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Is the well sounder waterproof?
The sonic water level meter unit and probe are resistant to rain and splashing but not saturation or submersion. They will be damaged if submerged.
How deep will the Eno Scientific well sounder measure?
The maximum range is 2000 feet. On a 6" well with tight clean casing all the way down and little to no obstructions along the way, the maximum depth can be achieved. On uncased wells drilled through porous stone or with irregular walls, or any obstructions such as spacer rings or couplings, the range will be reduced.
What happens when the log memory is full?
When the log memory is full, the sounder stops recording new data and preserves the first data points. The Well Sounder 2010P will continue to record data in its extended data memory up to 2GB and be accessible with the USB connection.
Can the Well Sounder be used on hand dug wells?
Hand dug wells are often fairly large and irregular, which may cause multiple or weak sound reflections. However, in any difficult to measure well, a small tube can be installed specifically for measurement. A 3/4" PE pipe can be used for up to 1000 feet provided splicers do not restrict the ID.
Can I use the Well Sounder on an open well?
The Eno Scientific Well Sounder was designed to work on a closed well. A simple piece of rigid card board or plastic held against the opening is enough to meet this requirement. In many cases it will work on the open well but may be off by a couple feet.
Can I use an external power source?
Yes, the sonic water level meter can be used with six AA alkaline batteries or with a 6.5-12 VDC external power source. If using an external source, the power must not exceed 16 VDC.

Eno Scientific Well Sounder: The power of sound echoes water level measurements

Measuring the distance to the water’s surface in a well can be difficult, especially when the well is deep and full of obstacles that can block and entangle mechanical measuring tools. But the  Eno Scientific Well Sounder 2010 Pro gets around those obstacles with the power of sound, eliminating the need for any mechanical measuring. The device sends low-frequency sound waves down a well until they hit liquid. “The sound can go around all the wiring and pipes and stabilizers within the well and give a measurement within a second,” said Rachel Bean, Eno Scientific sales manager. The Well Sounder’s probe emits broadcasts low-frequency sound waves from the top of a well. The waves return in about one second per 500 feet.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.
