Tank Level Gauges

Pneumatic Dipstick Level Gauge

For remote readout of water levels in above and below ground vented storage tanks .

Add this to your system where visual inspection or a manual dipstick is inconvenient, awkward or not possible.

There is no limit to the horizontal distance between the storage tank and level gauge, and no limit to the vertical separation.

The storage tank can be above or below the gauge location.

The gauge is can be used for:

  • Rainwater Catchments
  • Delivered Water
  • Shallow Wells
  • Water Table Measurement
  • Holding Tanks
  • Suitable for water depths up to 8 feet

The heart of the system is the high sensitivity diaphragm type altitude/pressure gauge that reads directly in inches of water (full scale: 100 inches or 3.6 psi).

How the gauge worksThe water level in the dip tube is normally at the same level as the water in the tank.The pressurizing bulb pushes air into the tube which increases the pressure in the tube.As the pressure increases, the water in the dip tube is pushed downward until it is completely expelled from the tube.The pressure reached to completely expel the water is the same as the water pressure at the bottom of the tank. (The water pressure at the bottom increases as the depth of water increases.)The reading on the gauge shows the pressure in inches of water which is the same as the depth in the tank. Accuracy of the gauge is approximately 2%. Note: 1 p.s.i. = 28 inches of water depth.

The vertical position of the tank (such as in the ground, on the roof or up a hil) has no effect on the measurement.

Pre-assembled kit includes:
