 Manometer Survey

Do you need a manometer survey? At Tennyson Foundation Repair we feel that the first step is to take a look-see at the foundation of your home and perform a visual inspection. Sometimes the next step is to advise the homeowner to have a Manometer Survey performed on their home.

A Manometer Survey is also known as a Floor Level Survey.

Do You Need A Manometer Survey?

Man – om – eter

At Tennyson Foundation repair we use the Manometer Survey as a tool to help analyze what type of movement your home is experiencing.

Just like a carpenter has a saw in his carpentry tool box, Tennyson Foundation Repair has  a manometer survey in our foundation repair tool box.

Experience goes a long way when using any type of tool. Lee Tennyson has years of experience performing manometer surveys and has completed over 500 floor level surveys.

So, which way is your home moving? Is the foundation of your home moving up? Known as heaving. Or, is the foundation of your home moving down? Known as settlement.

Sometimes a manometer survey will show that a home is experiencing both settlement and also heaving!

What is a Manometer Survey?

A manometer survey is an analysis of the many elevation readings taken through out your home. The elevation readings are taken on grid format and are laid out on a sketch of the floor plan of your home.

The device used to take the elevation readings is called a Manometer.

Is the manometer ACCURATE? A Manometer works on the principle that water will equalize to the same exact elevation on both sides of a U-shaped tube. Engineers have proven that Manometers are highly accurate survey instruments measuring elevations within thousands of an inch. Manometers are also used by the aircraft manufacturing industry to precisely position critical components in confined spaces within tolerances of thousands of an inch. Another great tool for reading the elevations throughout your home is the ZipLevel. The ZipLevel is a digital version of the Manometer.

Tennyson Foundation Repair likes both the water version and also the digital version of the Manometer.
