The Solinst Model 101B Water Level Meter is designed to be an economical and basic, yet durable instrument to measure groundwater levels. It is ideal for measuring depth to water in wells, boreholes, standpipes, and tanks.
Also available from Solinst, are the Standard Model 101 Water Level Meters that feature a laser marked PVDF flat tape, and the Model 102 Coaxial Cable Water Level Meters. Both options allow shut-off and sensitivity adjustment (See Model 101 Water Level Meter and 102 Water Level Indicator Data Sheets).
Water Level Meter 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.
Sturdy Reel and Handle
A convenient carry bag and Tape Guide
are available as optional extras.
The Model 101B Water Level Meter has a sturdy frame and ergonomic handle for winding the tape. A brake is also included on the reel.
For convenience, there is also a probe holder on the front of the faceplate.
Robust, Accurate Probe
The Model 101B P1 Probe is made from durable stainless steel. It is designed to reduce false signals in cascading water, and is leak-proof.

Heat Embossed Polyethylene Flat Tape
The Model 101B Water Level Meter uses high quality polyethylene flat tape with accurate heat embossed markings every centimeter and meter.
The 10 mm (3/8″) wide tape reels smoothly, remains flexible, hangs straight in the well and is available in 30 m, 60 m, and 100 m lengths.
Seven stranded stainless steel conductors resist corrosion, provide strength and are non-stretch. The tape is very easy to repair and splice. The dog-bone design reduces adherence to wet surfaces.
