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.

In fall of 2017, the Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) along with their project partners improved more than 9,000 feet of riverbank by planting 5,690 native trees and shrubs to protect the Connecticut River and its tributaries. The trees now guard against erosion and pollution on seven farms in New Hampshire and Vermont, and expand the existing habitat for local wildlife. This kind of project is part of CRC's core work. In August of 2011, Hurricane Irene roared up the East Coast of the United States, leaving a tell-tale path of destruction behind. Listed as the eighth-costliest hurricane in American history, the storm also hurt the watershed of the Connecticut River.Read More
Researchers face many difficulties. Assessing the ecological health of large geographic regions, especially those with a low population and few research facilities, is one of the many challenges scientists face. One such region is the Ottawa River in Canada, nearly 800 miles long with an overall drainage area of 55,000 square miles. Not only is it vast, but there are few human inhabitants and few research outposts. While gathering representative water samples in such a region is difficult enough, there is also the challenge of responding in a timely manner when problems arise.Read More
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) , agriculture is the leading probable source of impairments to assessed streams and rivers in the United States, and the third probable source to lakes. Agricultural impairments, typically considered nonpoint source pollution, include irrigation and stormwater runoff that carries animal waste, bacteria, fertilizer, naturally occurring metals, nutrients, pesticides, excess salt, and sediment. Unfortunately, this has at times positioned farmers—a group which has the most to gain from water quality initiatives—at odds with environmental agencies and scientists.Read More
