Low-Cost Water Level Meter

The C-Dipper is a low cost electronic water level meter with a rugged design.
It has a 16mm stainless steel probe which sends a signal up to the meter when it detects water. This triggers an audible alarm and LED light on the reel. The reel has a rugged steel frame & flange, giving it a much longer life than plastic reels. A soft rubber carry handle and locking loop are also featured on the C-Dipper.

  • Polyethylene covered precision metal tape
  • Tape graduated in mm
  • Rugged all steel frame

The C-Dipper is a low cost, yet rugged water level meter ideal for gauging groundwater monitoring wells prior to sampling.
A rugged steel reel gives the C-Dipper a solid construction. The locking loop stops the drum from rotating during transport, and the solid steel probe holder protects the probe when it is not being used.
