Heron's top selling water level meter, #1 for accuracy, reliability and value. The dipper-T water level meter has been designed to provide a long and reliable service life; we back up our claims with a 5-year warranty. Accuracy begins with a top quality, heavy duty tape. Each tape is tested by the manufacturer to ensure compliance with appropriate ASME standards. These tough tapes have a breaking load of over 300lbs (150 kilos). The tape is made from high tensile steel, ensuring resistance to stretching even at abnormal loads.

Everything on the unit from the ergonomic vinyl carry handle to the easy clean, full depth sstainless steel probe has been carefully designed to give you the very best water level meter. And yes, this is a precision instrument, and as such each unit includes a sturdy padded nylon carrying bag.
