Stainless Steel Drive-Point Piezometers Modelo 615
The Model 615 Drive-Point Piezometer is designed to give field personnel a truly inexpensive method to monitor groundwater in suitable conditions.
Solinst 615 Drive-Points attach to inexpensive 3/4” NPT steel drive pipe which is widely available through local plumbing and hardware stores.
Solinst Drive-Point Piezometers are most often installed permanently as wells, for short-term or long-term monitoring of groundwater level and quality. They can also be used once and removed. Drive-point, tubing and pipe alternatives are available to suit almost every situation.
High quality samples can be obtained as polyethylene or Teflon® lined tubing is attached to the stainless steel drive point. A shielded version is available which avoids clogging or smearing of the screen during installation. Sampling and head measurements are taken within the tubing with small
diameter equipment, as described overleaf.
Solinst Drive-Point Piezometers can be driven into the ground, or the soil at the bottom of a borehole with any direct push or drilling technology, including a vibrating power hammer or the manual slide hammer shown at right.
