Basic Water Level Meter
The Solinst Model 101B Water Level Meter is designed to be an economical and basic, yet durable, instrument to measure groundwater levels. It is ideal for measuring depth to water in wells, boreholes, standpipes, and tanks. Also available from Solinst, are the Standard Model 101 Water Level Meters that feature a laser marked PVDF flat tape, and the Model 102 Coaxial Cable Water Level Meters. Both options allow shut-off and sensitivity adjustment.
Water Level Meter Operating Principles
The Model 101B Water Level Meter uses a solid stainless steel probe, connected to durable polyethylene flat tape. A standard 9 volt battery, housed inside the reel hub, powers the Water Level Meter. The electronics are coated for water resistance. When the probe enters water the electrical circuit is completed, sending a signal back to the reel where a light and clearly audible buzzer are activated. The water level is then determined by taking a reading directly from the tape at the top of the well casing or borehole.
Sturdy Reel and Handle
The Model 101B Water Level Meter has a sturdy frame and ergonomic handle for winding the tape. A brake is also included on the reel. The faceplate is easy to remove in order to access the 9 volt battery for replacement. For convenience, there is also a probe holder on the front of the faceplate.
Robust, Accurate Probe
The Model 101B P1 Probe is made from durable stainless steel. It is designed to reduce false signals in cascading water. The probe is extremely easy to replace.
Heat Embossed Polyethylene Flat Tape
The Model 101B Water Level Meter uses high quality polyethylene flat tape with accurate heat embossed markings every centimeter and meter. The 10mm (3/8") wide tape reels smoothly, remains flexible, hangs straight in the well and is available in 30m, 60m, and 100m lengths. Seven stranded stainless steel conductors resist corrosion, provide strength and are non-stretch. They make the tape very easy to repair and splice. The dog-bone design reduces adherence to wet surfaces.

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.Read More
Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.Read More
For all the straightforward groundwater monitoring applications that the folks at Heron Instruments help with, there are a few that are far from typical. These include projects that take place near remediation sites or not far from waste disposal operations. Realizing that customers working in those sorts of projects are in need of a more robust option, the company has released the dipper-Tough . The new water level meter takes inspiration from Heron’s popular dipper-T , while throwing in a host of improvements that environmental pros working in groundwater can really appreciate.Read More
