Groundwater Depth Measurement and Heron Water-Level Meters
FREE Ground Shipping to destinations in the 48 contiguous US States.
Groundwater depth measurement, especially in monitoring wells is accomplished by several means. The method used is generally determined by accuracy requirements and if relatively rapid measurements are desired. Drillers often make an initial measurement with a "plopper" on the end of a length of twine or measuring tape. Knots in the twine may indicate approximate depth intervals. More accurate measurements have been collected by professionals using a chalked steel tape. The end of the steel tape is covered by chalk and lowered until the bottom part of the tape is wet by water and the chalk changes color. Blue "carpenter's marking chalk" is commonly used for the chalk. The color change is from light blue to dark blue when the chalk is wet. This method can be accurate, but it is slow.
Accurate measurements can be collected
more rapidly with an electronic water level meter (or water level
indicator). Our product line includes Heron Instruments, Inc.
products, manufacturers of an excellent line of water level and oil/water
interface meters. Water level and oil/water interface meters
by Heron are durable, accurate, and reliable. Heron
Instruments may be ordered from this site by several means including Visa,
MasterCard and PayPal. Some
small-diameter well solutions are explored on our "Small-Diameter
Well Quandry Page."

Dipper Water-Level Indicator.
The small size and light weight of the
little dipper make it the ideal instrument for "carry in" sites, shallow
wells and direct push equipment. Click here for
Oil/Water Interface Probe. The
H.O1L oil/water interface probe is used to accurately measure the thickness
of floating product (LNAPL) above the water table or dense non-aqueous
phase liquid (DNAPL) below groundwater. Click here for more
