Water Level Meters

Water Level Meter - 12V Power Reel Instructions

Routine Care

  1. After the depth to water has been recorded, the tape should be carefully rewound onto the reel, the probe wiped dry and placed into the probe holder.
  2. The probe, tape and reel can be cleaned with phosphate free (non-abrasive) detergent and warm water.
  3. Remove any dirt or water from around the central sensor pin. If the central sensor pin is corroded or coated, use emery cloth to polish it.
  4. Check the P2 probe seal/strain relief and replace the black heat shrink if there is any cracking or other damage.
  5. Use of the Tape Guide adds to the life of the tape.

  3. Note the polarity and place another new battery in the drawer and slide it back into the faceplate.
