The NEW Solinst 101 Water Level Meter with P7 Probe features an extremely durable, laser marked PVDF flat tape, with an enhanced dog bone design that is thicker, reducing adherence to the side of well casing.
The PVDF flat tape is laser marked every 1/100 ft or each mm; lengths up to 6000 ft (1800 m). New flat tape has increased tensile strength and electrical efficiency by using 6 strands of copper coated stainless steel and 13 strands of stainless steel in each conductor. P7 Probe is engineered to allow submersion to 1000 ft. (300 m), replacing the 101 P6 Submersible Probe. Sensor at the tip of the probe provides consistently accurate measurements in wells, boreholes, and cascading water, with almost zero displacement.
For measuring the depth to water in wells, boreholes, standpipes, and tanks, Model 101 Water Level Meters are the industry standard for portable hand operated meters. They are sturdy, easy to use and read accurately to 1/100 ft. or each millimeter.
There are two versions to choose from. The Model 101 P7 Water Level Meter features a pressure-proof probe rated to 500 psi and laser marked PVDF tape.
The Model 101 P2 Water Level Meter features an easy-to-repair probe and heat embossed polyethylene tape. Also available, is the less expensive Model 102 Laser Marked Coaxial Cable Water Level Meter for use in small diameter tubes, and the 102M Mini Water Level Meter on a small, compact reel.
PVDF Laser Marked Tape
The Model 101 P7 Water Level Meter uses extremely durable, PVDF flat tape, traceable to NIST and EU measurement standards. Each tape conductor contains 13 strands of stainless steel, and 6 strands of copper-coated steel, making the tape non-stretch and high in tensile strength and electrical efficiency. The tape has a thick dog bone design that prevents adherence to wet surfaces, and allows it to hang straight in application. The tape is also easy to splice.
The 3/8' (10 mm) tapes come with permanent laser markings every 1/100 ft. or each millimeter.
LM2: Feet and tenths: with markings every 1/100 ft.
LM3: Meters and centimeters: with markings every mm
Model 101 Water Level Meters use corrosion proof stainless steel probes attached to permanently marked flat tape, fitted on a well-balanced reel. They are powered by a standard 9 volt battery.
The probes incorporate an insulating gap between electrodes. When contact is made with water, the circuit is completed, activating a loud buzzer and a light. The water level is then determined by taking a reading directly from the tape at the top of the well casing or borehole.
A sensitivity control allows the buzzer to be turned off while in cascading water, and ensures a clear signal in both high and low conductivity conditions.
The Model 101 P2 Water Level Meter uses high quality polyethylene tape that reels smoothly, remains flexible and hangs straight in the well. Heat embossed marking each millimeter or 1/100 ft. allow accurate readings. The 3/8' (10 mm) wide tapes come in lengths up to 6000 ft. (1800 m).
Seven 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.

Solinst Polyethylene Tape Design
The P7 Probe is submersible up to 1000 ft. (300 m), ideal for measuring total well depth. The sensor at the tip of the probe provides consistent measurements with almost zero displacement. The tape seal plug design allows the probe to be quickly and easily replaced, if required.
