The Model 615 Drive Point Piezometer is designed to provide an inexpensive solution to monitoring shallow groundwater and soil vapour in suitable applications.
Solinst Drive-Point Piezometers can be used for short term monitoring applications, but are more commonly installed as permanent well points.
The Drive-Points attach to inexpensive 20 mm (3/4”) NPT steel drive pipe which is widely available through local plumbing and hardware stores.
When polyethylene or PTFE/FEP lined tubing is attached to the stainless steel drive point, high quality samples can be obtained. Groundwater sampling and hydraulic head measurements can be taken within the tubing using small diameter equipment.
Drive Point Piezometers can be driven into the ground with any direct push or drilling technology, including the Manual Slide Hammer. To avoid smearing of the screen or clogging during installation, a shielded version is also available.
The Manual Slide Hammer can be used, in the most inexpensive installations, to install the Drive Point Piezometers. The heavy duty drive head is used, on which the slide hammer impacts and a tubing by-pass ensures that the tubing does not get damaged during installation.
