Tank Gauge Cistern Tank Level Monitor
We have used several cistern gauges in our years of installing rainwater harvesting systems, and, time and again, we find ourselves returning to this little guy -- the Tank Gauge Tank Level Monitor -- when we want a reliable cistern gauge (one that doesn't depend on electricity or batteries for its use).
This Tank Gauge is a water level indicator that is simple and easy to install. Suitable for all vented tanks up to 100" in height. Features an easy-to-read display dial and utilizes a weight float, suspended on a string line to provide accurate readings. Gauge is fitted to the tank via two screws provided.
Monitoring your rainwater made easy!
The Tank Gauge is a rainwater tank level indicator which ensures you are able to tell how much water is in your tank at a glance.
The product appears adequate in quality. The installation was easy. The ONLY issue I have is probably more my issue, than an issue with the gauge, for most people. I bought this so I would not have to get out of my truck as I drive by my cistern, to tell where the water level is. At a distance, it is difficult to differentiate the black pointer that indicates current level, from the black "hash marks" on the dial. I always carry binoculars in my truck, so I simply use those, my eyesight may be the real "rate limiting step" in this issue. I MAY try and paint the pointer a different color if my binoculars become a hassle. mike on 2nd Jan 2018
Simple and effective for a quick check on water levels in cisterns. Easy to install, intuitive, nothing to break and little to wear out. Bought another after first one worked so well. Basic and well designed.

This is the second one I have purchased. I am using it on my underground cistern to monitor the tank level. The first one after about a year the spring inside of it came loose and did not work anymore. Since it is simple and does not need electric, I thought I would have better luck with another one. Only time will tell. Chad on 15th Mar 2017
I have a concrete cistern under my garage. Now I no longer have to remove the man hole cover . Tim on 26th May 2015
Our cistern level has always been a mystery and since this is our primary way for water for the house it was essential to know how full or empty it truly was. Not being as high-tech or fancy as other tank gauges I was a little skeptical about the product but the price made me say "Eh, it's worth a shot". It has performed flawlessly and the empty and full indicators are VERY easy to adjust according to your specific tank. We no longer have to guess if our water level is low now. WONDERFUL PRODUCT R.
