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.
