Solinst - Model 601 - Standpipe Piezometer
The 601 Standpipe Piezometer is excellent for taking water level measurements. The PVC tip is suitable for pushing into very loose sands at the base of a borehole, or for backfilling in place within test pits and pre-augered holes. It uses a porous polyethylene filter inside a perforated PVC tip which connects to the surface with 3/4' (19 mm) ID PVC extensions.
The Solinst Model 601 Standpipe Piezometer is designed to be placed within a drilled hole to provide a filtered inlet point. The pointed PVC tip is also suitable for pushing into very loose sands at the base of a borehole, a stream, or into very loose tailings pond sediments.
The 601 is excellent for metals sampling, as it is composed of a preformed Vyon tube set inside a perforated PVC piezometer tip. The Model 601 is well suited for water level monitoring, permeability measurements, construction control, de-watering drainage operations, and slope stability investigations.
The 601 tip connects to the surface with 3/4” ID PVC riser pipe using slip-fit couplings. Reducer couplings can also be used to connect to other sizes of riser pipe or casing. The standard 601 Piezometer tip lengths available are: 6”, 1 ft, 2 ft and 3 ft (15 cm, 30 cm, 60 cm and 90 cm).
Solinst also offers the Model 615 stainless steel Drive-Point Piezometer, which is designed to be pushed into the soil below the bottom of a borehole. They can also be driven directly into the ground from the surface.
