dipper-T

Now with drawDown Mode

The dipper-T water level meter is a topline, top quality instrument used for measuring static and falling head levels in wells and boreholes. The dipper-T in static mode is used for measuring the depth of water in wells, boreholes and standpipes. The dipper-T in drawDown mode may be used for measuring falling water levels during purging, well development and for low flow sampling; helping to protect your pumps from damage caused by dry running. The premium padded carry case comes included to protect your precision instrument from the elements.

The dipper-T water level meter can be conveniently converted to a multi-functional instrument not only able to measure static and falling head levels but also to determine the length of casing and well depth. The water level sensing probe can be easily removed at the link connection and substituted with either the optional Well Casing Indicator Probe or Well Depth Indicator Probe. The FOUR FUNCTION capability of the dipper-T water level meter makes this unit an asset to groundwater professionals and rural property owners during the construction of new wells, maintaining wells or decommissioning abandoned wells.

  • Electronic Module (IP65) – mode selectable for static and drawDown levels, removable for easy cleaning and servicing

Well Casing Indicator Probe – PN# 1503

The Well Casing Indicator Probe is used to measure the depth of metal casing in wells and boreholes from two inches in diameter and upward. The Well Casing Indicator Probe works using magnetism. While the probe sits within the magnetic field of the steel casing, an auditory and visual signal is active. When the probe leaves the magnetic field the signal stops. The well casing measurements are taken directly from the tape.


Well Depth Indicator Probe – PN# 1502

The Well Depth Indicator Probe (or bottom detector) is used to measure full depth in wells and boreholes. The Well Depth Indicator Probe uses a pressure sensitive plunger to measure the distance to the bottom of the well. When the Well Depth Indicator Probe reaches the bottom of the well, the plunger enters the probe body closing a switch, initiating an audible and visual signal at the top of the well. The well depth reading is taken directly from the tape.


3/8” Probe Option - PN# 1504
3/8” Replacement Probe – PN# 1415

The dipper-T with the 3/8” probe option is used for measuring water levels in narrow tubes and piezometers. The 3/8” probe is not removable and must be ordered at time of manufacturing. The probe is pressure rated up to 300ft for 20 minutes.


Power Reel – PN# 1500

CE Certified - Emissions & Immunity for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use Electrical Equipment
IEC 61326-1:2012 / EN 61326-1:2013
The Power Reel is intended for longer tape lengths. The Power Reel can hold tape lengths from 2000’/600m up to 3500’/1100m. The power source is 12 V DC that can be taken from the regular 12 V DC system on most vehicles. The Power Reel makes easy work of lowering and raising the longer tape lengths into and out of the well. A hand crank is included in case of power failure.
