The :facilities and conditions in which the test is conducted must be such as to allo", accurate probe placement. Thus the test must be done in I"ell where the water level can easily be seen and controlled( to minimise errors in manual readin9s), and which is preferably free of other equipment (to minimise problems and time loss in moving probe) . The test must be carried out by at least two people, one responsible for accurate transducer placement, and the other responsible for taking accurate time records. 2.2.2. Examine the equipment, checking that (i) the transducers are ready to be immersed (e.g. Wesdata sensors must have vacuum grease on the "0" rings) ; (ii) the batteries are fully charged; (iii) the system is communicating properly with the computer; 2.2.3. (iv) (v) the transducer venting system is adequate; the transducers have been immersed for long enough to have stabilised Have a receiving file for the test data and results, including reco,~ds of : (i) Type, range, serial No. of both the probe and logger beinq tested; (ii) Purpose, Date (iii ) Timed manual and operators; readings of the probe depth reco:cded on a standard Data Collection Sheet) (best 2.2.4. Select the depths at which the probe is to be tested. Data is to be collected from two depth ranges - both within and outside the probe's normal operating range.
