Unfortunately I found all of this out AFTER I thought the level was fast.

It took me a little time to understand the process well, but that was because I had never used a water level before.

Sometimes it would beep when it began to hit level, but sometimes it didn't.

All a water level is, is a clear plastic tube with something to close off the air at both ends - you have to remove them to get the level but it keeps the water from leaking out of the tube, or air bubbles from getting in, when you're shlepping it around).

Zircon added a totally unnecessary idiot box (light & buzzer) to "help" you find the level and thereby jack up the cost of this gizmo. I couldn't get it to work with the yellow box, eventually got frustrated and removed it. The tubing by itself (and water once you get the bubbles out of it) worked great thereafter. Bottom line: do not waste your $24 on this thing. Go down to Home Depot, buy 20' of 3/8" clear vinyl tubing, clamp off the ends with a couple of those black springy binder clips from your office, and add a little food coloring to the water to make it more visible. Five bucks tops if you steal the clips from work.

This device works OK most of the time but I think folks who don't know the principle of a water level have problems with it ... which means the instructions need to be better.

The most important thing to remember is that, once you know how to use it (and I haven't time to tell you how if you don't, sorry to say), you must let the water approach the "level" point from below, and S L O W L Y. This is true of any water level, but the narrower the tubing the slower one must "go". The 5/16" tubing in this operation is the minimum. It would do better to use larger tubing.

After hitting "level" I always lower the measurement end at least once more and approach the level point again to make sure I got it right.

They could do better with more and/or better instruction, but it's difficult to tell people who aren't just a little "technically" inclined, or "very handy", about all the "ins and outs" of this simple, yet a bit difficult to apply, principle, and its application with this instrument.

My only problem with the unit is that sometimes the sonic indicator makes a high pitched, virtually inaudible indication of level (and "above level") instead of the clearly audible one it's supposed to. This seems to be when it's below about 55 degrees temperature. I'll try exchanging the unit to see if it's just a lemon.

I bought this because it advertised on the packaging that one person could use it (generally not the case for waterlevels). The problem with this one is that it seemed virtually impossible to get anything level. The above/below sounds is too similar and the unit doesn't seem to ever give you more than a split second indication of level after which it starts making other noises. Hence the reason for buying -one man job- did not work out. Returned the unit the same day, back to the old tubing for me. An additional problem with this unit is that it's high pitched beeping is REALLY loud in a confined space.

Don't be fooled. The item in the photo is NOT what you will receive. You will not receive the hanging bracket or the easy fill hose attachment. What a rip off!

I purchased this level at my local hardware store to level the top of the 6x6 posts of the pergola I'm building. The electronics didn't buzz with a new battery in it. This was not a big deal because the only thing that you need is the water reference marks. The two clamps at either end do their job well by keeping the water in (this is the only good thing about this level but it came at a price).

The further I got from the main post the more off the level marks were. This makes sense in retrospect because as two ends of the tubes go further away from each other less water height is available to quickly counterweight the two ends. The two ends would have leveled quicker if the tube was a larger diameter. You could see that the tube under the clamps also did not return to their original diameter though it was open enough to let the water flow passed the crimp. This restricts the speed at which the water in the tube returns to level. There were no bubbles in the line. After I moved the tube end to the post, I marked the max and min of the meniscus as it settled over 15 seconds in the belief that the level point would lie between the two. What I should have been watching is the mean VERY slowly rise.

Unfortunately I found all of this out AFTER I thought the level was fast. Standing on a ladder keeping one end still thinking that the water column has settled only to find that it wasn't is not what I want from something a tool that relies on the simplest of principles.

If I had bought a laser level or even a larger diameter clear tube, I wouldn't have had to "re"-level my posts. Measure twice cut once only works when you have reliable tools. I threw this "tool" away as soon as I discovered the tops were not level and the Zircon REPEATED the same incorrect level.

Out of the box the thing worked like a champ, but after fewer than 2 hours of use over the course of a week, the electronic contacts began to malfunction. Sometimes it would beep when it began to hit level, but sometimes it didn't. Sometimes the beep became steady, sometimes it would beep once and then went silent even when it went above level, sometimes there was no beep at all when it went from below level to above level. Hell of frustrating. In all cases I followed the instructions and started from below level and gradually inched to level or above. I kept asking the question: Did it hit level or not? And had to repeat each measurement ten times starting from below level to the level point, just to make sure the beeps, if at all, that I did hear were indeed at the level point. The electronics are clearly faulty. Maybe the contact pins became corroded, but after just a week when I used clean tap water?

Also the 1/16" accuracy claim is the best case scenario estimate. Most of the time I found 1/8" to 1/4" error to be more realistic, due to the uncertainty created by the faulty electronic unit. Also part of the problem is the small tubing size giving rise to a bit of capillary action which affects the accuracy, making the level insensitive to slight elevation changes.

I ended up buying a laser level.
