Heron dipper-Tag

Heron dipper-Tag


The Heron dipper-Tag uses a weight attached to a laser marked cable, which is mounted on a sturdy free-standing reel. The high quality flat tape is primarily used during the installation of monitoring wells to measure depth to the bottom of a well, or the depth to the top of a backfill sand or bentonite layer.

The dipper-Tag comes in standard lengths of 30m to 300m and comes complete with a carry bag. Other lengths are available by request. The cable is mounted on a sturdy free-standing reel with a carrying handle, weight holder and brake. It is also perfect for using as a Bailer Reel with your Stainless Steel Bailer as you no longer need to estimate the depth of the sample.

Features & Benefits

Laser Markings

Markings are clearly and accurately laser etched every 1/2 foot or every 10 centimeters of the cable. The laser markings allow the cable to run smoothly over the Tape Guide.

Tape Guide

A Tape Guide is provided with each dipper-Tag. It can be placed over the top of the well casing for ease of use and to protect the cable from damage on rough edges. When used properly the Tape Guide also increases reading accuracy.

316 Stainless Steel Tag

The standard stainless steel tag weight is 680 grams and measures 25mm diameter and 20cm length. Tag weights have tapered ends to minimize hang-ups during deployment and return to surface, and can be clipped on and off the cable. This allows the use of the reel mounted marked cable for other uses, such as bailer, or pump, and packer deployment.


  • Accurately measure depth to backfill during well construction.
  • Measured safety support line for deployment of pumps, samplers and packers.
