How to check a bubble level in 10 seconds

  • May 26, 2021

I will not talk about the importance and necessity of a level during construction. The accuracy and beauty of future repairs depends on the accuracy of this tool. It is worth allowing the slightest error, and the consequences will be very dire.

Nobody bothers to redo mistakes. But it costs money, takes time, requires strength and nerves.

By the way, the level accuracy does not depend on the cost and the manufacturer's firm. There is an opinion that the more expensive a tool is, the more reliable and high-quality it is. But in reality this is not the case. Sometimes the expensive is bad and the cheap is good.

I will tell you a simple method to quickly check the accuracy of a building level. I call this method "horizontal". Use it when buying a tool. The steps of the method are as follows:

  • 1. Place the tool on a flat surface first.
  • 2. When the bubble stops, remember in which position it is.
  • 3. Then turn the level 180 degrees.
  • 4. Place the tool on the same surface again.
  • 5. Evaluate the result.

If the vial has returned to its previous position, you hold in your hands precise instrument.

If the bubble has changed position, shifted to the left or right, set this level aside. It is likely that his testimony is inaccurate, and therefore cannot be used for repairs.

That's the whole method! Just a few seconds will protect you from buying a low-quality tool.
