The Guelph Permeameter is a constant head permeameter that measures in-situ hydraulic conductivity. It is a simple to operate, portable unit that requires very little training to use. Only one person is needed to perform the test.

The method involves measuring the steady-state rate of water recharge into unsaturated soil from a 2" cylindrical hole, in which a constant head of water is maintained. Calculations are made to determine the hydraulic conductivity, soil sorptivity and soil matrix flux potential. Depending on the soil type, tests can take between 1/2 hour and 2 hours using only 2.5 liters of water. Erosion hydrology and slope stability can be studied. The Permeameter is made of high impact polycarbonate, and has a 2" dia. soil auger to test to a depth of 15 to 75 cm (0.5 to 2.5 ft).

The Kit is supplied complete with Permeameter, tripod stand, soil auger, sizing auger, well prep brush, vacuum test hand pump, water container, data sheets, carrying case, and instructions.
