The Heron dipper-T Water Level Meter is a superior instrument providing exceptional value.   This instrument has been redesigned with a touch panel electronics module that makes it easy to operate, even with gloves on.   Many years of field experience have enabled Heron Instruments to design and build Water Level Meters that are rugged, reliable and user friendly.   Heron dipper-T Water Level meters have the following quality features:

  • Unbreakable polycarbonate reels*
  • Durable polyester powder coated steel frame
  • Corrosion resistant stainless steel fittings
  • Soft grip vinyl frame handle
  • Large ergonomic brake and winding handles
  • Water and dust proof encapsulated electronics
  • Strong and accurate NTS certified tape with stainless conductors
  • Full depth STAINLESS STEEL and TEFLON probe
  • Standard 5/8-in. (16 mm).
  • Optional small-diameter (3/8-inch or 9.5 mm) probe for an additional $36 USD.
  • Long Lasting flexible link between the tape and probe
  • "Third hand" built in casing hanger
  • Heron dipper-T carrying bag included (for units with up to 500'/150 m tape)

The standard tapes are jacketed in POLYETHYLENE, marked in feet & 1/00th ft. in English units and meters and millimeters in Metric Units. The tape lengths are from 100 ft to 2,500 ft in steps of 100 ft. Intermediate lengths are to special order. All units carry a 5 year warranty.

*400 ft (150 m) and longer models use aluminum reels for lightness.  If you are interested in a small-diameter (3/8-in. or 9.7 mm dia. probe) instrument, equipped with 75 feet (22 m) of tape, check the Little Dipper or the dipper-T can be ordered with the small-diameter probe optionally.

Now you can measure groundwater temperature with a new temperature option available on the dipper-T.

Read water temperatures from 0 - 110C with an accuracy of 0.1C displayed directly on an LCD mounted on the control panel.   No hand held readouts, cables or complicated charts are needed.

If you are interested in this option please follow this link.

Motorized Reel for dipper-Ts with long tapes:
Heron now offers power reels for tape lengths 1,000 feet (300 m) or longer.   All power reels are available for use with a 12 V  or 120 V DC power supply.   Large double frame allows for easy fastening onto drill rigs or truck beds.

  • The power source is 12 volts DC that can be taken from the regular 12 V system on trucks or light pickups.
  • The unit uses power to lower and raise the tape in the well.   A hand crank is also included in case of power failure.
