Locking Well Caps
A locking well cap, designed to support both 2" and 4" wells (using an Adaptor). This versatile, vented well cap is available in two configurations. The first is designed to support our Levelogger Series of products, the second is designed to support our Bladder Pumps and Double Valve Pumps. Solinst Locking Well Caps are convenient, durable, and suitable for numerous other applications and installation types.
Well Caps can be permanently secured to the well casing using screws and the cap securely locked using a 3/8" (9.5 mm) shackle diameter lock

Levelogger Installation Well Cap
The Model 3001 Levelogger Well Cap Assembly is designed to fit 2" wells (or 4" wells with an Adaptor), and provides options for installing Leveloggers with wireline, Kevlar cord, or using a Direct Read Cable.
When installing Leveloggers using a stainless steel wireline or Kevlar cord suspension, the water level dataloggers are securely supported when tied off to the eyebolt included on the underside of the well cap insert.
When installing Leveloggers using a Direct Read Cable, the cable simply fits inside the well cap insert hole, when the red dust cap is removed. For Levelogger installations where a Barologger is intended to be installed in the same well, the well cap supports up to two Direct Read Cables. Even with two Direct Read Cables installed, there is still an access hole available for manual water level measurements or groundwater sampling, without disturbing the down-hole Leveloggers.
