Ore-Max Tensiometer

Ore-Max Tensiometer

Tensiometers provide accurate information on the moisture status of your leach pad so you can see if you are applying too much solution (saturation). These instruments measure in centibars (cb) or kilopascals (kPa) of soil water tension. A higher gauge reading means drier soil and a lower gauge reading means wetter soil.

Service Kit

1 Required for up to 50 Tensiometers

The Service Kit provides valuable tools to ensure the tensiometers function accurately and are easily operated and maintained. The hand vacuum pump (included) serves to evacuate entrapped air from the tensiometer body which optimizes accuracy and response time.
