Details

Overview
The Skinny dipper water level indicator is used for measuring the depth of narrow water in wells, boreholes and standpipes. This specialized unit is designed for narrow tubes and piezometers. The Skinny dipper will signal water with a bright LED light and solid buzzer tone allowing the user to make water level measurements accurate to 1/100th ft or to each millimeter. The Skinny dipper signals when contact is made with water, the water shorts the probe tip and body to complete a circuit. There is no on/off switch. The switch is the water.

Tape Specifications
The Skinny dipper uses a high strength Polyethylene tape, the diameter of which is a narrow 1⁄4”. The flexible tape winds smoothly onto the tough Nylon reel. Inside the tape are embedded two stainless steel conductors which carry the signal from the probe to the electronic module. The Skinny dipper tape is marked to engineering scale: Feet and tenths with markings every 1/100ft.

Electronic Module Specifications
The Skinny dipper includes a fully potted, fully field removable electronic module. The super bright red LED and buzzer are housed inside this water tight module. The sensitivity dial on the Skinny dipper allows false signals from cascading water to be tuned out enabling the most accurate readings possible. The electronic circuit converts the DC battery current to an alternating current; this prevents corrosion and mineral build up on the probe. The Skinny dipper works on one 9 volt battery in an easy access battery drawer mounted on the front of the module.

Probe Specifications
The Skinny dipper comes with a weighted, slim line 1/4” (0.635cm) diameter probe. The narrow diameter of the probe makes the Skinny dipper an ideal water level indicator for narrow tubes and direct push equipment.

Reel Specifications
The Skinny dipper is a well balanced unit. The stand alone, sturdy steel frame is coated in Polyurethane for durability. The vinyl coated carry handle is ergonomically designed for comfort and easier rewinding. The reel flanges and center hub are moulded from high strength Nylon turning on a stainless steel axle allowing the smooth running of tape up and down the well or borehole. The third hand well casing hanger and tape guide are standard features on all Heron water level indicators.

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.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
