It’s not a question of “if” you get the probe stuck, or nick the tape on the well casing, but rather “when”, so it’s a good thing Solinst Water Level Meters, Interface Meters and TLC Meters are fully repairable! Solinst products are rugged and built-to-last, and Solinst does provide tape guides with all its meters to help prevent damage to the tape, but accidents do happen. Users need not be intimidated when faced with repairs, especially when it comes to a tape splice. Solinst provides easy-to-use splice kits for flat tape and coaxial cable meters, with easy-to-follow instructions for adding new tape sections, or even replacing your probe on a short length of tape. Replacement tapes are also available, which are simply connected to the existing probes and reels.
