Soil Moisture Probe Kit Provides Fast, Accurate Readings in as Little as Three Minutes!
The Quick Draw system uses a patented portable tensiometer to quickly obtain soil moisture readings in a variety of soils and in all types of weather. The tensiometer is widely recognized as the only instrument that measures the forces that determine moisture flow in soil. Readings can be taken in just 3 to 5 minutes in sandy loam and 12 to 15 minutes in heavy clay. The tensiometer Probe consists of a patented, thermally isolated, water filled probe and a high-flow ceramic tip. Water movement between the ceramic tip and the soil creates a vacuum that is registered on a gauge at the top. This reading, from 0 to 100 centibars, measures the moisture content in the soil; the higher the reading, the drier the soil. For accuracy, the large vacuum gauge is hermetically sealed against weather and shock, and features adjustments for calibration. A vacuum adjustment knob also allows the user to estimate a moisture range, and features adjustments for calibration. A vacuum adjustment knob also allows the user to estimate a moisture range, shortening the measurement time. A coring tool is included for making the proper length and hole size for installing the tensiometer. All-steel
construction gives you years of use. Soil Moisture Probe Kit includes tensiometer, coring tool, cleaning rod, PVC carrying case and accessory kit that includes a replacement ceramic tip, O-rings
