The Staff Gage has a long history of providing a direct visual indicator for determin-ing water level. staff gages are designed for easy mounting to a wall or pier, with heavy metal grommets and a 0.188 inch opening for screws or nails.
Each gage consists of a metal core, coated with porcelain enamel and marked with accurate measurement markings at specifi c intervals. The metal core is heavy 16 gauge (0.075 in / 1.9 mm) iron, which is completely covered with a baked-on porce-lain enamel finish to resist rust or discoloration. Different colors of enamel are used to provide the markings; typically black numbers on a white background. Stevens staff gages are designed for years of trouble-free use, and can be easily cleaned.
