Solinst Canada Ltd.’s Model 104 Sonic Water Level Meter is a handheld, acoustic ranging instrument designed to simply 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 device 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 metres (2,000 feet) are possible.
