Accurate Water Level Readings From A Solinst Sonic Water Level Meter

Jun 08 2021

The NEW Solinst 104 Sonic Water Level Meter is a handheld, acoustic ranging instrument designed to simple and quickly measure depth to static water level in a well, piezometer, sounding tube, or any closed pipe from surface.

The Solinst Sonic Water Level Meter works in straight wells, but is also ideal for wells that are difficult to access due to crooked pipes, narrow tubes, or other instrumentation in the well. Because there is no equipment to lower down the well, the Sonic Water Level Meter is also ideal for use in contaminated or corrosive environments.

The Solinst Sonic Water Level Meter consists of a Control Unit and connected Probe. The Probe transmits a sound wave into the well or pipe and measures the time for the pulse to return after contacting the water. Readings are shown on the clear LCD display on the Control Unit. Depth measurements to 600 m (2000 ft) are possible. 

The accuracy of the reading depends on the acoustics of the pipe you are measuring in, how well you know the environment you are monitoring, and if you set up your Sonic Water Level Meter properly. Featured in our ON THE LEVEL Blog, is a post that provides five tips to help ensure you get the most accurate water level readings from your Solinst Model 104 Sonic Water Level Meter.

Tips include proper setup for your probe, taking into account your well diameter, knowing your air/water interface temperature, having knowledge of your typical water fluctuation levels, and knowing what’s down your well. Based on the tips, learn how settings can be added in the Sonic Water Level Meter Control Unit to help optimize your water level readings.

The Sonic Water Level Meter allows the programming of parameters like well diameter, offsets, and groundwater temperature. Maximum and minimum detection ranges can also be set to ignore any interference from known well features or obstructions, and to narrow down the measurement range for obtaining the most accurate water level readings possible.

To ensure proper set up and prolonged field life, the Model 104 Solinst Sonic Water Level Meter is supplied with a plastic disc for covering larger well openings and a convenient Solinst Field Bag. It comes with a 3-year warranty. The Solinst Sonic Water Level Meters can provide accurate depth to water level readings for years—especially when all five tips in our blog post are followed!
