The dipper-Tough water level meter is our most durable water level meter. Made for use in landfill and remediation sites, the dipper-Tough uses Kynar coated tape which helps it outlast white economic tapes and polyethylene coated tapes in such environments.
The dipper-Tough is a rugged, top quality instrument used for measuring static and falling head levels in waste disposal and remediation sites and other harsh environments. The drawDown feature on the dipper-Tough makes this unit ideal to use during pump and treat testing when contaminates are found in the groundwater.
The hydrocarbon resistant Kynar jacketed, high tensile steel core tape is embedded directly into the probe body, allowing for longer life of the tape and probe* when used in harsh environments. The dipper-Tough is manufactured without a link, which may deteriorate in corrosive or high temperature environments, to extend the life of the meter. Heron Instruments recommends not to use any water level meter in both harsh environments and potable water as there could be cross contamination. We recommend our dipper-T2 for use in potable water.
*If the probe gets damaged, the probe and part of the tape would be sacrificed.
