The WatrLevel can be used for any project ...

As you can see from the pictures on this page, there are numerous uses for the WatrLevel - all employ the same basic principals so use your imagination, we're sure you can come up with some more.  If you do, send us a picture!

Concrete forms


The WatrLevel is excellent for making concrete forms. You can use it to build the form and then check your work before pouring even if the form is sloped, complicated, or partially out-of-sight.

Deck building


The WatrLevel is particularly suited to deck building, especially since the WatrLevel can be used around corners and by one person.



It's surprising but getting a lawn level isn't all that easy, there's really nothing made that is inexpensive, easy to use, requires one person, and is fast - except the WatrLevel.

Home Inspection 

The WatrLevel is a valuable tool for Home Inspectors, it makes it very easy to determine if there is sinkage anywhere in the house (since the WatrLevel works so well around corners).

Fence building


A real advantage of the WatrLevel is it's ability to works in all directions.

Setting deck blocks


The WatrLevel won't help to layout those blocks but it can easily tell you how high or low each one is, click here for an example.

Step work


Yes, the WatrLevel is also excellent for step work since it is so good with vertical measurements.

Stepped fence building


Stepped fences are a snap with the WatrLevel.

Brick work


The WatrLevel is excellent for brick work, whether it's the wall portion or the posts.




Finding the level point on a series of posts is very easy - even on a slope or if you don't have line-of-sight.


Rain gutters


Since the WatrLevel can be used either up or down it's perfect for leveling gutters.  Nothing's worse than a rain gutter with a low spot ...

Kitchen cabinets


The WatrLevel makes it real easy to set kitchen cabinets.


As you can imagine, the WatrLevel is a perfect match for pond building - after all it's water-based leveling tool.

Equipment leveling


Leveling unusual or shaped pieces of equipment is an ideal use of the WatrLevel.



Snapping a line to paint a stripe on the outside or inside of a building is also easy with the WatrLevel.

Aircraft construction

Another unusual use, aircraft construction, particularly leveling the wings.  Water levels have long been used for this.



Installing siding is a snap because the WatrLevel works around corners and requires only one person to use.

Mobile home leveling


Leveling a mobile home has never been easier than with a WatrLevel.

Window & doors


The WatrLevel is the only tool that can mark both sides of a wall to cut-in a door or window.

Drain slope

Sometimes drains slope can be deceiving - it looks right but it isn't. (picture is the inventor actually using the WatrLevel).

T-bar Installation


The WatrLevel works great for marking the lines for the T-bar - remember line-of-site is not needed.


Since the WatrLevel measures vertically, it can provide the "Z" in the X, Y, and Z needed to make a contour map.  Why pay for an expensive survey when you can do it yourself with a tape measure and a WatrLevel?



One use for the WatrLevel that seems taylor-made is for archeology/anthropology/geology. Mapping a excavation is extremely important, with a tape measure and a WatrLevel this can be done easily and accurately. Also, no need to worry about that expensive equipment in the field.

Store shelving


It may seem like an unlikely use for the WatrLevel but I have first-hand knowledge of how wells it works.  I used it to level a large gondola system that was on a sloping floor, all I had to do was check each leg and I instantly knew how big of a block/shim to cut for that leg.

 Cut & fill

Again, since the WatrLevel can measure vertically it is possible to calculate the amount of cut or fill needed.


The WatrLevel be used to stake grading and then to check your work - fast and easily.


Walkways are easy to check with the WatrLevel, ensuring proper slope.
