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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In The News
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.Read More
It’s an open, dirty secret that the ocean is used as the ultimate sewage solution.
Each year trillions of gallons of untreated waste are sent to the ocean due to a widespread lack of sanitation technology or infrastructure that needs updating as cities and populations grow. As the impact of untreated sewage on the ocean becomes clearer, attention to the problem and strategies for dealing with it have not kept up.
“This is a massive problem and it’s been largely ignored,” said Stephanie Wear, senior scientist and strategy advisor for The Nature Conservancy. Wear has turned her attention to raising the alarm about the effects of sewage on coral reefs, which often loses airtime to other pressing issues like climate change and overfishing.Read More
In 2012, for maybe the first time, Lake Superior got scummy.
Visitors to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore reported algae washing up on shore around the park.
It was a marked shift for the park, made up of a portion of the Lake Superior lakeshore and nearby islands. The water surrounding the park is cold, clear and typically low in nutrients: a combination unlikely to result in algal blooms.
But, in 2012 and again in 2018 after violent storms, major algal blooms—ones observed over multiple days—washed ashore and clogged the beaches with unsightly, scummy algae.
Not the usual suspects
The algal blooms of Lake Superior are not the algal blooms of warmer, more nutrient-rich lakes like Lake Erie.Read More
