  • Probe (IP68) – 5/8” fully pressure/depth rated*, no holes or recesses for contaminate build up
  • Tape – polyethylene, reinforced with Kevlar – markings in metric (mm) or engineering scale (1/100’)
  • Carry Bag – to protect your water level meter from the elements
  • Hanger – built in, to support the meter at the well head, allows for hands free deployment
  • Tape Guide – built in, to protect the tape from sharp edges on the well casing
