Today, it is common to find the true level of an area by using modern devices such as spiritual or laser levels.
These methods actually work well, but there are more ways to find the exact level of an area without using expensive and complex equipment.
A few years ago, builders found real levels by using a very simple technology that only involved materials such as water and pipes.
This is often referred to as the water level and is actually still used by builders today as it provides high accuracy.
There are a lot of uses for the water level, like, assuming you need to find the water level in two separate rooms in different locations of the house, or, maybe you are working on a website where you are starting and need to build a data to work.
The water level will help you achieve all these goals easily.
For those who want to find a cheap and very effective way to build a real level, please keep reading!
First, look for a long plastic pipe.
The water hose works very well on this and you can pick the hose length from any DIY or garden center for a relatively cheap price.
Once you have the length of the hose, put it where you want to reach the real level.
Make sure that one end of the hose is on either side of the two points you want to get the height.
Fill the hose with water, but only enough for you to leave about a few feet of air at the end.
Keep one end of the hose where you want to be used as a "horizontal reference" and then, with the help of the assistant, let them keep the other end of the hose at the other point where you want to build the next reference point.
Mark this clearly with chalk or pencil.
This is the trick!
When your assistant lifts the hose at the reference point, move the hose up and down until the water level in the hose matches the water level of the first reference point to be transmitted.
When you complete this task, the water line in the second reference point hose where your assistant is located will be the same as the water level at the first reference point.
The idea is that because I know it's hard to imagine this technique without actually seeing the chart to illustrate it.
But trust me, when I say this, get this right and you will build a real level or baseline no matter where you work.
By the way, for those who are not sure what the baseline is;
The baseline is the real reference line that all other industries, such as all industries on the construction site, will use.
This is very important because it is difficult to establish a uniform level of any form without establishing a real baseline.
You can use this method to transfer levels to any number of points you want, but be sure to transfer your reference point from the first original point for higher accuracy.
This will eliminate the possibility of any cumulative error.
So you have it, a really great and precise tool to use, and it's just a fraction of the cost of expensive state-of-the-art laser or rotation levels.
So go and build your new water level today to get the perfect and accurate craftsmanship.
