High Quality Groundwater and Surface Water Monitoring Instrumentation
In 1975, Solinst began as a small reseller of geotechnical instruments. Through the early 1980’s, founder Doug Belshaw reshaped Solinst into a successful manufacturer of high quality groundwater and surface water monitoring equipment. Doug started by producing the Model 101 Water Level Meter, which provided the first, flexible polyethylene tape with an engineering scale (marked in tenths and feet).
Over the next 30 years, the Solinst product line developed into a full range of instruments, sold worldwide. Products include water level meters, interface meters, groundwater samplers, multilevel groundwater monitoring systems, remediation equipment, drive-point piezometers, and dataloggers and telemetry. In 1996, Solinst introduced the Levelogger® water level datalogger – the first combined absolute pressure sensor and datalogger in the industry.
As the Solinst brand grew, the company expanded to its current home in Georgetown, Ontario. With Jim Pianosi now as president, Solinst remains a successful and stable family-owned business in Canada.
HydroTerra has been working with Solinst as their exclusive representative in Australia for over a decade. Clients in Australia benefit greatly from the long-term collaboration between the two companies, and the superior technical and sales support they receive from such an experienced distributor.
