Product Information

Watermark

The measurement principle of the Watermark sensors is similar to that of the gypsum block system. Whereas the special sensor does not dissolve in the soil and has a more consistent distribution of pores so that more precise measurements are possible. The sensors are permanently buried in the soil and have an average life of 3 to 5 years. They do not require any maintenance during this time and are frostproof. A soil temperature sensor can be be used for temperature compensation. This method of soil moisture tension measurement may be used as a substitute for tensiometers if it is to be expected that the tensiometer will frequently fall dry at the installation site. The sensors may be connected either to a data logger or to the specific handheld for recording and reading out the data.
