Time-tested water tank gauges.

Since its birth in 1985, more than 70,000 Levetators continue to indicate water level on all types of tanks throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Pacific Islands, USA, Central America, Middle East, and South Africa.

Highly Visible
The bright aluminium indicator with its red band can be seen from hundreds of feet away. According to customers in Australia’s remote outback, the indicator can be seen from a plane or helicopter while doing their regular observations of cattle, fences, windmills and water troughs. Even better is the night time visibility thanks to the highly reflective red band.

True Reading
Unlike homemade water level gauges that rise up the tank when the water level goes down inside the tank, the Levetator shows the actual water level. What you see is what you have.

No gimmicks, no batteries, just a simple float/weight/pulley system.

Easy to Install
All necessary items (template, instructions and hardware) are provided to make it easy for the handyman to mount the Levetator on the tank roof.

Built with quality materials and large, free-running pulleys, the Levetator water level gauge provides reliable service year in, year out.

How it works

  • The weighted float and indicator are connected to the counterweight by separate cords, each cord running over a pair of pulleys. When the float is half-immersed everything is balanced.
  • Rising liquid level lifts the float up, the counterweight moves down, and the indicator keeps pace with the float.
  • Falling liquid levels causes the weighted float to pull the counterweight up, and again, the indicator keeps pace with the float.
  • At all times the indicator matches the liquid level exactly.


A cord extension is available for tanks over 10 feet tall. The retrofit includes installation of the extended cord by our technician prior to shipment. Requires one additional day of processing. Price is $39.95 and includes the cord. Please contact us to request this option.
