Thank you for the design ideas! A question: have you experienced positive pore pressures on your tensiometers? If yes, is the rubber stopper vulnerable to eject?

Thanks Stephen for your question. No we have not had enough positive pressure in the tensiometer to eject the stopper. They sometimes get knocked out by workers are tractors passing by.

I'm struggling to find the ceramic cup that you have mentioned on the vendor's website. Should I just email them? Also, is there any particular reason why you chose that vacuum gauge? You can purchase vacuum gauges with identical specs and design but with a plastic housing instead of stainless steel for half the price on zoro and other sites. Just curious if you have had bad experiences with the plastic backed gauges. Thanks

Hi Ben,  
 
The new ceramic cup that glues onto PVC from soil moisture corp. has to be custom-made in small batches--not yet a big seller. If you have trouble ordering it, I suggest that you call Alan Farad directly at 805-964-3525 ext 223

Hello,  
Is there any other source for the ceramic cups? Soilmoisture has been less than cooperative in offering these for sale. They accepted the order but I have been waiting weeks and am unable to get any kind of response or order update from them.  
Thanks!

Hi Evan,  
 
Sorry that soilmoisture is taking so long to send you the cups. I do not know of a substitute source. I suggest that you call Alan Farad directly at 805-964-3525 ext 223
