The little dipper2 is a compact water level meter designed for ease of portability, used to measure both static and falling head levels in wells and boreholes. A padded carry case comes included, but it’s small enough to be stowed in a backpack.

The meter has 6 tape lengths to choose from – 15m or 50ft, 22m or 75ft, 30m or 100ft.

The little dipper2 in static mode is used for measuring the depth of water. The little dipper2 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.
