Choices of probe designs are available on these water level meters. On the P7 version each probe is attached permanently to laser marked PVDF flat tape which is fitted on a well balanced reel. This water level meter has a PVDF flat tape and has increased tensile strength and improved electrical efficiency by using 6 strands of copper coated stainless steel and 13 strands of stainless steel in each conductor. The P7 pressure probe is submersible to 300 m (1000 ft) and has the sensor mounted at the tip to provide consistent accuracy.

The P2 probe version has a simple design which is easy to clean and hangs straight in wells. The P2 probe is mounted on a heat embossed polyethylene tape which is easy to repair.

The high quality polyethylene tape reels smoothly, remains flexible and hangs straight in the well, irrespective of temperature. Permanent markings at each millimeter or 1/100 ft. allow accurate readings, traceable to national standards. The 3/8” (10 mm) wide tapes come in lengths up to 6000 ft. (1800 m).

Stranded stainless steel conductors resist corrosion, provide strength and are non-stretch. They make the tape very easy to repair and splice. The dog-bone design reduces adherence to wet surfaces. Markings are permanently impregnated onto one side of the tape in your choice of scale.
