1) Place the reservoir with water level a few feet higher than dig site.
2) Find and place the tamper at the lowest level on the dig site and mark the water level. I used a clamp.
3) Place the tamper where you will dig. If the water level is 2 inches below the mark dig down 2 inches.

Tips: After you find the low spot create a reference point at the same level out of the dig site to sanity check or recalibrate the level. A paver would be good for this.

This system worked great for me for the initial dig. I still may use the jack stand method when it comes time to level the pavers.

Hopefully someone finds this useful.

If it's worked for thousands of years, it can't be all that bad. I've used that method for projects as well.
