Well Sounder - Sonic Water Level Meter


The Well Sounder 2010 PRO determines static water level in wells by using sound waves to measure the distance from the top of the well to the water level.

    Sonic Water Level Measurement


    The Well Sounder 2010 PRO is the latest sonic water level meter, designed and manufactured by Eno Scientific, to measure static water level in wells by using sound waves to measure the distance from the top of the well to the water level.  This portable handheld meter prevents well contamination and clean up by eliminating the need to lower anything into the well.  Simply place the probe into a well cap vent opening and turn the unit on and within seconds the static water level measurement is displayed.  Distance reading mode powers up first, but with the press of a button, the simple user interface, yet powerful internal processor, calculates and displays a variety of other information including the total water in the well, the rate of change, temperature, and battery voltage.

    wellsounderhandheldcontrolA built-in data logger can record up to 25 million time-stamped readings along with well ID, temperature and other associated measurements.  It can be set to take automatic measurements from 1 to 60 minute intervals or manually by pressing the log button. The data can be reviewed on the screen or downloaded to a computer using the serial RS232 port or the included USB cable for analysis.  Stored data is formatted for USB access in simple Windows compatible text files sorted by well ID.   The data can be easily copied from the well sounder onto the computer then opened with common programs such as MS Excel, MS Word, or MS Notepad.

    The Well Sounder 2010 PRO can accept input from most standard pulsed flow meters, with an optional adapter, and will measure the total water pumped and record it with the logged data.  Using this information, the well sounder calculates and displays; flow rate and the rate of recovery in the well, even while pumping. This allows the user to perform unsupervised drawdown testing. Set up the test, turn on the logger, and return when the test is complete. If the data won't be downloaded immediately, take advantage of the unit's ability to identify each well with an ID number to keep the data organized.

    wellsounder2010prokitThe Well Sounder 2010 Pro kit comes complete with everything necessary to measure and record well static water levels, including batteries and a rugged carrying case. Some of the features included with this advanced instrument are the power save mode - which puts the unit to sleep between measurements and turns off the power after a selected period of inactivity.  If there are known defects in the well, such as a rock fissure, set the measurement range min and max to ignore the interference.  Transmit data in real time to a remote readout or logging device by using the multipurpose bidirectional serial communications port, or allow remote programming of the well sounder.
