Tensiometer with digital display
A patented new plug-in connector ensures highest reliability. The conventional method of soil moisture measurement. The tensiometer is a device used to determine matric water potential, an indirect measure of soil water content. The tensiometer consists of a plastic tube with a porous ceramic or clay tip. It is filled with water. At the top of the tube is a vacuum gauge to allow visual inspection. The device is buried in the soil. When the soil dries out, the water inside the tensiometer penetrates through the tip into the soil until the soil is saturated. The vacuum inside the tube increases and can be measured by the gauge.
Result can be read digitally with a push-button. Battery for operation is needed(included).
