Note:

For diagnostic purposes, you may wish to install the end of the Vented Cable with the serial number, to the Wellhead connection at surface.

The Vented Cable ends terminate with female twist connections for the LevelVent or AquaVent logger and the Wellheads. Therefore, the Vented Cables are interchangeable (i.e. it does not matter which end is installed on the Wellhead or logger).
