I had a lot of ups and downs this summer building our first AGP. One thing that was well worth the money I spent was a water level. Some prefer a laser, but that wasn't in my budget and things were drawn out too long to rent one. I could have bougth 3 of them for what the rental store wanted for as long as I needed it! You can make your own homemade water level, but for $40 or so you can get this fancy one online. Very accurate and easy to use, don't know what I would have done without it, highly recommended.

I am in no way affiliated with the company, but it's a really slick idea. Just thought I would throw it out there for folks to check out. We are now happily swimming in our crystal clear TFP!

I used one when I built my inground pool and it worked well. Mine had an automatic feature which allowed it to be operated by one person which was great since I was normally by my self.

Here is my DIY version: two car jack stands, a garden hose, two plastic tubes with metric scales on them and of course silver tape! Allowed me to singlehandedly level pavers for a 12x24 Intex within a few milimeters.

There are many Elevation/altimeter app's available for iOS & android, some look like they go down to 2 decimals of meters/feet.
I wonder if one of them would do the job and it would be interesting if one of you that have a water level would compare the level to an app?

Most altimeter apps I have seen are only accurate +/- 5-10 meters/feet, i.e. not applicable for precision measurement. Do you have a suggestion for an app to test?

I have used 'My Altitude & Altitude+-BUT have never needed/wanted accuracy down to inches so I cant say if they're accurate enough. t
