Details

The Solinst Model 615 Drive-Point Piezometer uses a high quality stainless steel piezometer tip, 3/4" NPT pipe for drive extensions and LDPE or Teflon sample tubing, if desired. Combine these with an inexpensive Slide Hammer and you have a complete system.

The Solinst Model 615 Drive-Point Piezometer has a stainless steel, 50 mesh cylindrical filter-screen, within a 3/4" (20 mm) stainless steel drive-point body, screen support and a barbed fitting for attachment of sample tubing. Optional heavy-duty extension couplings are also available to create a strengthened and more rugged piezometer.

The inner barbed fitting allows connection of 5/8" OD x 1/2" ID (16 mm x 12 mm) LDPE or Teflon sample tubing. This prevents sample water from contacting the steel extension rods, and maintains high sample integrity, even when inexpensive carbon steel extensions are used.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
What is a barb?
The tubing barb connects 5/8" OD x 1/2" ID (16 mm x 12 mm) LDPE or Teflon sample tubing to the piezometer. This barbed fitting prevents sample water from coming in contact with the extension rods in order to maintain sample integrity. Piezometers without a tubing barb such as the 615N and 615NS are designed for use with water level meters.
What is the diameter of the piezometer?
All Solinst 615 Drive-point Piezometers are 3/4" in diameter with a 1" diameter tip. The shielded version includes an replaceable 1.5" diameter shield.
Is the Solinst piezometer reusable?
While the 615 Drive-Point Piezometers are commonly installed as permanent well points, they are reusable. However, if a shielded version (615S or 615SN) is used, the shield portion is single-use only and replacements are available.
What is the length of the piezometer? Is there a maximum depth restriction?
Piezometers are not suitable for all soil types, so the depth limitation will vary. The maximum depth penetration of the 615 piezometer will depend on the soil conditions, shield use and drive method used (slide hammer or drill). The piezometer itself is 6 inches long.

New map shows significant groundwater depletion in Central California

Groundwater level data collected by a Central California county shows significant drops during the past 12 years, according to a San Luis Obispo Tribune article. Data shows that groundwater has dropped by a minimum of 70 feet from 1997 to 2009 in the Paso Robles area of Central California. In the past four years the areas of most significant decline have expanded north and south. Drought and agricultural withdrawals are the likely culprits for the groundwater decline. Some advocates are calling for more responsible water use by vineyards in the area, while farmers note that the recent drought did not help the situation.

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program, reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.
