Description

The Solinst Sonic Water Level Meter is a portable, acoustic ranging instrument designed to simply and quickly measure depth to static water level in a well, piezometer, sounding tube, or any closed pipe.

The Sonic Water Level Meter reports static water level measurements without having to put any instruments down the well, eliminating any introduction of chemicals and the need to decontaminate equipment or wells.

The Solinst Sonic Water Level Meter works in straight or crooked pipes, and is ideal for wells with difficult access. Depth measurements to 600 m (2000 ft) are possible.

Sonic Water Level Meter Operation:
The Solinst Sonic Water Level Meter consists of a Control Unit and connected Probe.

The Control Unit has a clear LCD display, keypad, and comes with 6 AA replaceable batteries. The Control Unit keypad has buttons to turn the Probe on and off, read the depth to water, and controls to scroll through and set other parameters.

The Probe connects to the Control Unit with a 1.8 m (6 ft) cable. The Sonic Water Level Meter Probe is designed to sit in the vent opening of a standard well cap, or the opening in a Solinst 2″ Locking Well Cap.

For measurement in larger diameter openings, each Sonic Water Level Meter includes a plastic disc to cover the well opening. This ensures a strong signal and accurate water level reading.

The Sonic Water Level Meter works by the Probe transmitting a sound wave into the pipe or well and measuring the time it takes for the pulse to return after making contact with water. The distance is calculated using the speed of sound and time. Since the speed of sound varies with temperature, a temperature sensor is located in the Probe to adjust for variations.

To account for different well diameters, offsets, well obstructions or features, the Control Unit allows you to input measurement parameters to get the most accurate water level reading possible.

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.
