Before beginning any measurements, check the electronics and battery condition by pushing the ‘START/OFF’ button. Five quick beeps with the green light flashing, indicates that the meter is functional. A flashing green light every second indicates the meter is on. It will automatically turn off after 5 minutes to preserve battery life.
Using the Tape Guide
The tape guide has been designed to:
- The tape guide has been designed to: improve accuracy when reading interface measurements; to prevent the laser-marked PVDF flat tape being cut by well casing; and to allow the tape and probe to hang straight from the side of the well.
- If interface measurements are being taken in a 2" dia well then simply fit the small end of the tape guide onto the edge of the well casing.
- Insert the leg of the Interface Meter into the hole on the Tape Guide (small reels only).
- Once inserted, rest the Interface Meter on the side of the well casing.
